Ordered some new additives today.

 

Brightwell iodide and iron. 
 

as well im swapping out the filter floss for socks. Sump is getting dirty too fast. I dont think the floss is catching enoiugh.

My additives arrived today.

 

I also ordered mesh filter socks.... well I didn’t order mesh socks. I ordered a felt sock, that’s right... one.... haha guess i gotta get on amazon

 

i also purchased some more acros today. Three to be exact. Glued them in place and moved a couple pieces around.

 

a small millepora was getting stung and taken over by my bonsai acro. So i snapped it off and moved it to the back of the tank, lots of space back there to grow.

 

oh i also got a JF grafted sun monti which i glued to the overflow, gotta use all the space i can!

 

started with iron dosing today. Going to alternate days between iron and iodide, as well as daily aminos. 
 

anything else?? Dont think so. Water change tomorrow that’s for sure.

 

Here are some top down shots For your viewing pleasure.

Switched from floss back to socks today. I feel like they just catch more detritus. 
 

Much louder however.

 

Oh! I also finally turned my vectra up a bit. Been running at 20% flow this whole time. Cranked it up to 40%. Should help add some flow with all this sps growing bigger by the day.

Thank you so much. That digi is one of my favourite corals. I got it for free from a friend but it was browned out and dying. Came back to life and i couldnt be happier. Only problem its blocked from the front view.

Steady as she goes. Very excited to hit the one year mark. I really need to upgrade my lighting to something with more coverage. I sent in my xr15 to be repaired a few weeks ago. Still waiting on a diagnoses. If it comes back repaired ill add it over the display and that should be perfect. If not... maybe a whole new fixture? 
 

few random shots from the week for your viewing pleasure.

Picked up two new frags this week. Cloudberry chalice and yellow submarine favia. Having said that I have nowhere to put them in the display. I need a bit more rock. Hoping the LFS - 1. is open tomorrow and 2. Has some life rock arches in stock. Will break apart and play around with some small pieces to add to display.

 

in the mean time, here are some flow off, top down shots. Cheers

I feel like shrinking myself and diving into your tank. It's so colorful and gorgeous! 😮

Your tank looks so good. I am not sure I would change any thing.

Beautiful! Definitely don’t have a lot of room left. Id say you are coming close to the point where you sit and let things fill in! Very colorful love your mini colonies.

 

Im waiting for my frags to get to that size. Its slow going when you look at the tank daily. Everything looks the same until you check past photos.

Youre very right. Im so close to letting thijgs just fill in... honestly i was probably there 10 frags ago.

 

Noticing now ill most likely have to move some slower growing acros to my frag/fuge. They’ll be overtaken in a matter of months.

 

 

Today I noticed my Red Dragon acro is being encroached upon by a green millepora and another green acro. The red dragon is one of my favourite pieces. That means the other two need to be trimmed back.

 

i ordered some coral cutters that will be here in a couple days. Ill frag them then instead of using my usual snap off with my fingers method.....

 

I heard back about my xr15 and mp40 i sent off for repairs. Both had blown fuses and power supplies.... they said most likely due to a surge or brown out. I should have them back in the coming weeks and that makes me happy! The tank needs a bit more light so ill hang it above the display.

That red dragon is amazing. They have such a delicate beautiful growth pattern. Ill get one at some point. 
 

Im surprised they are replacing your light and pump. Do you have a power strip with surge protection?
