Wow, that last end shot is a stunner! Have you measured PO4 or NO3 lately?

Amazing tank, where do you run your alk at to get these results? I lowered mine to between 7 and 8. Trying to mimic natural sea water.

That orange/peach frag is awesome! Well, that whole frag rack is, but I really like that one.
Beautiful tank!

Got a Little upgrade for my return pump. Right now my return plumbing is all PVC, and although my return pump is extremely quiet, there is some vibration passing through the plumbing.
This should stop 99% of the vibration.


It's silicone hose from BRS. Gunna cut out a small piece of pvc and add this in between to help prevent that vibration from being passed from my pump to my tank.

Also got a little magic juice.


After all the additives I've tried, I always go back to this one. Just makes my sps go crazy. Just sucks it's so darn expensive.

that is a very very nice frag pack and one lucky local reefer. regarding the additive, how much do you add a day?

Snapped a couple pics this morning. Seems like things are pretty happy.
Did have 1 of my clowns die this week, kinda broke my heart watching the male go after her dead floating body. Seemed like he was trying to get her to come back to the torch where they hang out. Bummer

sorry to hear about the clown.

as always everything looks great.

have a couple questions.

how far off are your t5s from your top coral? also how long do you run all your lights for or whats your lighting run up and run down?

Are you using a gel filter when taking pictures? Colors look awesome. I believe i have the same bulb combo as you over my frag tank. 6b+,1 c+, 1p+? Do you have any other supplemental led or anything? Also how high is you light off water? Have you measured par with a meter before? And what is your photo period like? Sorry for all the questions. Great tank.
