So it has been some time since I’ve posted anything on my tank so here’s a little update:

 

i modded my ato to a refugium in the fall and have been extremely pleased by it so far, I get great chaeto growth and it’s a fun place to store critters which I don’t want in my display tank.....

 

 

i was was in Europe for 3 weeks and had some issues when I came back but the tank is now better than ever and on its way to getting filled up with corals
