Stable alkalinity is key for LPS inflation.

Ver nice chalices sir. May I ask how they look under typical lighting? I know they won't pop obviously but do they just brown out or is the color still there?

This is with the Kessil at 100% white and blue. They don't lose too much. I also keep a few of them under halides which they really pop under as well.

Beautiful Nuvo tank sir. I'm a sucker for LPS and chalice are by far my favorite. Nice to see someone keeping a somewhat nano tank with success like this. Hoping to get my tank stable enough as yours.

Why do you run a kalk reactor vs in your ATO since your dosing two part?

The kalk reactor is actually on there to slow down the flow coming from my ATO because its sensor doesn't pick up filling quickly enough to shut off before it gets to the senser's alarm. It does help with pH and limits the amount I have to rely on dosing units though. Redundancy never hurts.

I'm toying with a small skimmer on this tank more as a means for oxygenation than filtration. Should be interesting.

What a beautiful setup! I love chalices, acans and micromussas...mini acans. I just got delivery yesterday of a Nuvo 40 Black and can't wait to set it up. There is a bit of extra bubbly silicone in the back seam that I need to clean up. I hope it is alright to use a razor blade on it. Did you have any problems with messy silicone?
