What percentage do you run the Nero 5 at? I have a lagoon 25g but was worried it would be too much. Curious about your experience. I learned that you can do single digit percentage adjustments which might do the job?

I'm running a max of 40% and minimum of 15% on random mode with a high variance.  It does create a nice wide flow pattern.  So far I'm really liking it.

Well everyone, not too much to update.  I finally got rid of my large green pocillopora colony.  It was taking too much space and spreading all over via polyp bailout.  That stuff seems harder to keep in check than aptasia.  On a side note, aptasia x seems to do a great job of killing it if you let it sit on there for a couple of minutes.  Here are a few pics.

Thanks, I don't feel like my pics are very good, but if you have a galaxy s9 put it in pro mode.  I can share settings if you have the phone.

I have an older iPhone. I really need to upgrade though. I hear good things about the galaxy phones taking good reef pics. I may have to look into switching.

I think some folks still get good pics with the older iPhones, may require a separate app though.  This is the first Samsung I've owned...was an iPhone guy since they first came out.  I do have to admit the pro mode on Samsung cameras is pretty awesome.

Well guys, haven't been on in a while.  Summer has been keeping me pretty busy.  Tank is still up and running pretty well...just trying to keep things stable.  Haven't acquired any new corals, don't have the space.  Here are a couple of pics.  Getting good growth, just need a few pieces to color up for me.

Thanks man, your tank is always fun to keep up with as well.  The 30Ls are very cool, but I'm not gonna lie...been eyeing an int or ext 100 and they are 10% off on BRS right now.
