Video of how I feed the tank these days. This is dosed every hour by a peristaltic pump controlled by my AC Jr.

Hi, congratulation for your tank. It's fantastic!
I have some question, if maybe:
What is the nitrate level of your tank? So much food go into the tank every day, how keep the nitrate level low?
I saw on list of your live stock a red/white spider sponge.He lives now? This coral/sponge keeping is very difficult. I have a frag some weeks ago, but I don't know, how does feel him in my tank. I feed the sponge part with Reef Pearls, and the polyps feed with cyclops. But I don't know this food enough for him? And my nitrate level is go up :(

thanks

Hi Gabor,

Sorry for the late reply. The sponge died. Several months ago I moved my tank and it didn't survive. The sponge is not all that difficult in itself, but the polyps will suffocate the sponge if you feed them directly, so I don't recommend it. I think in nature the sponge is able to grow much faster than in our tanks, so its not a problem. In our tanks, the sponge can't grow fast enough to keep up with the polyps.

My tank was recently upgraded and featured on Advanced Aquarist here:

Hi, thank you, for your answer, is a interesting thing. I feed the polyps until now, but not directly, only from the water. i hope, he will survive in my tank. we will see....
