Update

 

I decided to add a fish. Cute little yellow clown goby. 

 

I also added 5 turbo snails and 5 nassarius snails. My biggest battle so far is a bit of GHA on the rear and side pane that I can't reach with the magfloat. Other than that I can complain at all!

 

Also, added chemipure elite to the media basket. I haven't used this stuff before but it seems A LOT of people are seeing great results from it.

 

I should also have my ESV B-Ionic here tomorrow. I change my water every sunday. I change 5 gallons every time, which is about 45% of my total volume. Much to my surprise, my alk is only measuring 7dkh (Salifert). I am VERY happy with how my SPS are reacting to the tank. My orange tip millie is already starting to base toward the rock and my coraline is really taking off. I would like to keep my dkh around 8-9 in this tank since the bio load is very low. I have never used ESV 2 part but I am really hoping that I will like it and look forward to trying it out!

 

Thanks for reading everyone!

Also, decided that since my SPS is doing so well I would add a turquoise lovelli and a pink and green pocilipora!

Sweet looking tank! If I didn't already have a Fusion 10 I was going to get this one for when I downsized. Will be following!

Thanks! Happy to hear you'll be following.

 

I really thought about getting the 10 but decided the scape could be a little more intersecting with the added length,

Happy share. Thanks for the kind words! I don't know what it is but I just really love the P14. Just the right size.

Nice work on the tank!

 

Is your spinstream still noisy? If so, take it apart and make sure the gears are sitting correctly. It will be somewhat loud for a day or so before it slimes up, but it should not be after that. I have three running on my nanos about three feet from the foot of my bed, and they are inaudible.

No, it actually a lot quieter now that I left it on there a few days. However I am not doing some testing of my acro to see which nozzle they prefer.

I also decided with success of the A80 that I would order the Kessil control to compliment the A80!

As you wish! I don't know what the deal is but the color and quality of these photos are not great to say the least. However, I don't have time to take new ones right now so these will have to suffice!

 

Not everything is as happy as I want but A LOT of things are really starting to take off. The growth on my purple stylo is kind of outta control. 

 

Also, added the spectral controller....and a yuma frag...and red planet acro...I think I may have to sell something out of here soon!
