Oh and my salinity is 1.026 because it was 1.030 this morning and I lowered it with RODI as much as I could.

I like your scape, especially that left rock formation. Really cool. I'm a newb too. Welcome to nano-reef :)

Very neat scape! Looks like you are well on your way, any plans for eventual stocking yet?

Thanks ;), ya my ideas for stocking: corals: pulsing xenia, some acroporas, candy cane, birdsnest (orange guttatus and thick branch), maybe some zoas, a spiny cup pectinia and maybe an elegance or something for the clowns to host.

Fishes: 2 clowns for sure, 1 yellow tale damsel or bicolor dotty back.

I absolutely want at least 1star or 1 blue maxima clam.

My ideas for the moment ;)
