You can definitely see tons of rock nems and other types in the FTS! I was happily surprised that they do so well in this low nutrient environment :)

Wow Harry, the tank looks even better than it did when you got totm.  It just keeps getting better.

Everything looks fantastic Harry.

 

How do you keep the frag plugs free of algae? :)

The only algae that grows in here is that very short red geladium. Low nutrients, 0 PO4 on Hanna URL Phosphate yet the corals from soft to hard dont seem to mind oddly.

The seahorses are really good right now.  The 2 new youngsters, Samson and Delilah have settled in well.  Ruth is growing well and is starting to glance coyly over at Samson, the only male in the tank.  Samson glances back but he really has eyes for Eve, the matriarch.

No, I messaged a person or two but neither would lend me a meter! :(

Check with one of your LFSs or with your local reef club.

The reef club is like two hours north of me, but calling LFS is a good idea. I suppose with a down payment they may let me borrow it :)

Yeah a LFS near me requires a deposit and you have to sign that if you break it, you buy it. Our local club has one too which is nice. Haven't used either yet lol

All I think of when I adjust the light is "Do I want the colors darker? A few inches higher. Do I want them lighter and to have faster growth? A few inches lower". 

Ive never really understood par. One acro colors up on the sandbed. The next is brown until I put it 2" below the waterline 😂

That's why I want to know PAR.  T5 is magic sauce, so it may be super high or super low and everything still looks good.  I want you to have low PAR, lesson being that many of us run our tanks way too bright, but I can't be sure.  Hopefully you can find one locally, else maybe I'll let you borrow mine.  Maybe. :D

Id be happy to send a large deposit :)

Mine browned immediately... a year later is throwing branches up and I see the purple tips. I'll take a frag off and grow it alone on a plug to see it that'll be nicer!

What's happening in this photo? All the lights still off?

A dog photo for the non-acro crowd!

So this weekend I will try to fix my skimmer, it's been dead for a few months now. Today I saw a bunch of long hair algae on a powerhead again (Honestly that's a great place for it, easy to remove!) so perhaps nutrients are up a bit from trying to spot feed the anemones. I looked around my reefin shelf and found Hanna checker phosphate reagent, but I don't have the glass vial! So I will order the vial because I am curious. I'm planning on reorganizing my reef shelf and perhaps I will be able to put together a complete test kit or two from it. I also have some DI resin so should replace it since I'm at like 16tds. And do a water change maybe. Meh. Or maybe just stop feeding until all algae is dead 😬

Is that a fox flame in the second photo? And how did you get your utter chaos so fluffly??? :blink:

 

Beautiful tank

I agree it has the structure of a fox flame, but I got it as a tiny brown frag that looked nothing like the colony- when I get home in a few hours I'll find the original photo.  So I don't want to call it that just in case I'm wrong, I just use "Skinny-ass acropora" 😂

 

Utter chao polyp was just glued there and left alone in tons of flow, it's spread nicely. My sunny D's also have really cool skirts but I don't know why :( 

 

thanks!
