I think I'll set up a poll on the forum when it's closer to August, and we'll vote on the themes. Smile

So my tank sprung a leak from the top side again about a week back. So I've had the water level low and just put silicone on it. Hopefully it will hold this time..

Update-

Everything is doing great! I'm dosing with part A and B every few days, feeding the tank with reef chili, and adding in amino acids. I've never had such fast growth in my tank. My read dragon is already branching at the top, my vivids riddler chalice has grown off the plug, and my mauls are now 8-9 heads.

Pictures of the Anthias which are doing good,

do you contribute the growth to the amino acids or the reef chili?

Thanks bro! It's hard to say, my water is now much lower in PO4 allowing the calcium skeletons to grow better (from .24~ down to .11~), I'm dosing with the max amount of aminos, I'm also doing part A and B, also I am feeding reef chili, as well as using red sea coral pro salt.

Pretty hard to narrow it down lol. I'll post up a picture of the red dragon tomorrow Very Happy I am pretty happy though Very Happy. Judging by its growth I can probably frag a half inch piece in the next 3 months and it wouldn't even make a noticeable difference at the rate it's growing. Very Happy
