tank is doing good. I’m trimming most corals for my other pico tank. The red dragon is growing fastest among all the corals. I have switched from two parts to sodium biocarbonate based alk dosing to keep ph stable

Gonipora still doing ok. It gets stung by acan and all other neighbors :0-( . It was badly damages thrice.

The cyphastrea continued to cover glass bottom. Wife likes it most,. I broke a forest fire branch during last water change 😞

The green slimer has grown huge but I ruthlessly trim it every week. Red dragon is catching up.

Thats all for now.. off to some 3d printing 🙂

red dragon is continuing its growth spurt.

Goni, I’m not happy with its growth , but also don’t want to invest in spot feeding , and theres not much real estate left, and she is super sensitive, loses to most aggressive corals next ,

Got rid of the fast growing bambam colony to give my blue lepto a chance

I think the grandis does not like high alk, some of them are closed up for couple days ,

Thank you so much . It still has lots of empty places. I think the pendant style light source is limiting my sps spread. But I can wait , it’s just shy 4 years 🙂

Couple of weeks before I decided to improve the light situation. Right the only kessil a360 is good for the sps on top , but bad for everything else due to serious shadow effect .

i had bought noopsyche k2 during Orlando rap, to address this , so finally hooked it up. 
 

 

used a makerbeam based fixture to mount the lights. I designed and 3D printed a small contraption to nearly situate the fixture in top of biocube rim

3D printed contraptions , they have 10x10mm square holes for the makerbeams

effect of the new light is yet to be realized. I like the slight purple ,

I am thinking of changing my tank. It’s running for 4 years now and I’m relatively happy with it. But the curved front is a big problem for taking photos, and the rims will take a lot of work to get rid of. I’m thinking whether to go for 50g with sump version or smaller cube or other aio options. My current choice of vendors are water box and Red Sea . Any advices ?

I haven't really looked into it.  I might add the IM Nuvo EXT 50 Lagoon just because people seem to like IM. :unsure:
