Looks great Eric! I love how everything is growing. Parameters seem good, just do as you said and up the calcium a bit. Is 4 hours as long as you typically run your main lights?

Im always so jealous of your photo skills. And your overall layout is awesome. I love the openness. Your goby, the first picture in your second segment, what kind is that? Do you like him?

Hey Ashley, sorry for not responding! The goby is a pink spotted goby. he's be great Smile
not shy at all! Thank you for the compliment too Smile


Got a few updates.. I switched sand, went with a coarser grade sand to keep it from blowing around, its doing well, wrasses and goby seem alright with it!

The setosas ended up slowly dieing.. guess the pink color wasn't a good sign Sad

the acro has turned a more green shade and the red planet is recovering nicely..

the favia in segment two, last pic from the bottom has grown a lot Smile

Algae blenny died randomly.. maybe old age? he was at least 5 years..

war coral is looking sick in my frag tank.. way more color..

got the damsel out finally Very Happy

Took the skimmer out of my sump, its all calurpa and rock now. Got a 50w led over it and it seems to be going well.. its bright!



The toadfish that lives down there..
