Tank is looking great. The black sand looks super sleek with your corals!

I've never been a huge fan of the black sand, but you are pulling it off my man.   Will be following along as your tank matures.

I just realized that it’s been a month since I updated thread.

 

I will upload pictures during the week, I have a few new additions and will be getting more throughout the week.

 

For now, I guess I’ll share what I aquarium related purchases I made Black Friday;

 

Chiller

RO/DI Buddie

Fluval Evo 13 (I guess one tank is not enough)

Hydor Powerheads and Wave Controller (dirt cheap offer)

New corals; Torch and a sunburst monti. I really hope the monti does well, such a great piece.

 

Please disregard the digitata pieces/frags - I think I fried it when I got it a few weeks back.

That Monti looks awesome. I'm sure it'll thrive in your tank, mine have been easy and fast growing. Where are you thinking about placing it in the tank?

I have no idea, starting it at the bottom and will most likely move it to a place in the middle where it doesn’t shade other corals.

December Update - 6 months and 3 days into reefing.

 

Very hard for me to upload this picture. Everything is a mess visually; Placemenent, rock work etc. 

I’ve been extremely busy with work, so hopefully in January, I’ll get a chance to finalize placement of corals.

 

However, overall all live stock is happy - besides my two hammers; one took a hit due to high phosphates, one is victim to too much clown fish loving. Have to get them an anemone!

7 months, 4 days into reefing. A whole month since I updated this thread. Overall I am happy. Still ton of room, so we’ll see what “fillers” I find.

 

-

The RO/(DI) I was getting from the LFS had a TDS of 77. I caught it very late because it definitely took a toll on my hammers and candy canes. They receeded - hopefully they can bounce back.

I switched from Tropic Marin (LFS) to my own water and Red Sea Blue = Everything is thriving and recovering

 

Here’s some pics, I really do not run blues that high and they do not do these

corals justice...

Polyp extension is unreal. This frag is big than my two head green torch.

I like your aquascape.   Looks like about 6lbs of rock.  I have 10lbs in my IM10 and I think it's too much

I actually started with a couple more lbs, but throughout the months I rescaped and removed. Not sure I am satisfied yet, but it gives me the change to place all types of coral.

Awesome. Think this coral is ok under stock light? Or should I wait until I get my light upgraded? Nanobox mini tide M is my plan.

Euphyllia is pretty hardy generally and do well under a variety of light. Start with a small frag and see - the stock light has worked well for others 🙂

Hmm.. I need to get better at updating this thing. 

 

Tank is both good and bad - I am noticing growth in most corals but some are having a hard time. 

I am struggling with high nutrients and I can’t find the source - no overfeeding, no overstock, vacuum the sand bed every week.... 

 

My anemone has done well in the last few months;

Thanks for the update. 🙂 Nem looks great... is it hosting your clowns?  How high are your nutrients? Have you changed your filter media lately?

Hey, Sophia - thanks!

 

My clowns will host ANYTHING but the nem lol however it’s currently being kept company by my anemone crab.

 

We’re looking at 15-25 Nitrates according to Salifert - this is not crazy high but it’s after a 20% gallon change.

Phosphate TBD - I have a friend coming over with a Hannah checker.

 

I changed my Seachem Matrix Carbon about a week and a half ago. Do it every 3 weeks.

Meh - female clown jumped ship. I’ve been without lid for almost 3 months. I knew the risk but still tough.

Looks like it's smiling a very silly smile. It's great.
