Week 3 under Luxdium, and things are chugging along. I repositioned the scoly again and hopefully it won't get moved by the hermits or snails in this position and be able to continue recovering. I've also moved most of the equipment to the back in an attempt to make all the HOB equipment look less cluttered.

The floating zoa trees are spectacular! Really like the over all clean feel of the tank

1 month under Luxdium and 1 month more to go before it's acclimated to the desired intensity. It's now getting much more energy wattage-wise.

I would love to know more about your water chemistry and maintenance.  That’s about the cleanest tank that I have ever seen. 

I clean it before I take a video/photo. 😉 But I don't test much, and your comment reminded me that I should. As for maintenance, I usually do a 10% water change every 2 weeks and lately I've been cleaning the glass and skimmer collection cup almost daily.

Last week of acclimation! Just cleaned the front glass for this shot to show the algae growth, it's still manageable. I did an extra deep clean after including the equipment.

Some colors are starting to come in from browned out zoas.

I love how this tank is so dang simple and just thrives. 

Simple works!
