BTW @SeaFurn the two mangroves in the front were from you they’re literally growing like weeds it’s been 4months?

That’s so awesome! I’m glad they are gonna be in this tank and have been growing for you. This tank is going to be amazing!

I am still worried about the mangroves since they can be temperamental when rooted and replanted. 

You’ll know quickly. I’ve heard the leaves may fall off if they get stressed - but I’m no expert. Remember to mist the leaves off with RODI regularly. 

 

I just repotted my 6 in Carib Sea Eco Complete planted aquarium substrate. Still in fresh water. Hoping to see some progress in their growth. Will hit them with some root tabs in a week or two.

Yes they have been growing quite well I think it could be the korallagoon substrate, all seven of the mangroves were rooting something fierce I had to cut a few away from the rocks.

i spray the leaves and part of the stalk every other day mostly whenever I see an accumulation of crystals. You have to let me know how you like the ecocomplete substrate. Mainly pros and cons.

Looking good! Sorry I missed you at the swap. Did you pick up anything good or just sell some stuff?

Congrates on the orders from the venders. Hope it leads to even more orders for you. Looks like you got a good deal on those pretty frags.

1. “Weeping willow” leather
2. orange Montipora setosa 

3. Bali green slimer acropora

4. mint seriatapora (birdsnest)


the ole lady chose them 😂  I think she wanted a budget tank so she could spend money on coral.. I think she did the same thing in last year’s contest.

If only all coral would grow like that, with a “swish and flick” Lol

 

thanks 🙏 the stax rock is amazing to work with and many combinations. If I had a choice I would fill up my RS750XXL with stax 😂

As I sitting here staring at this tank. I’m actually glad I’m making it a ULM tank. 
I literally have it as a “set it and forget it”

I have to stop by a LFS tomorrow to meet up with a friend to get one of my frag racks back from the frag swap (say that 3x fast) 😂 I’m still in the fence on what I should stock it with. I would love to have some acros  or maybe some encrusting montiporas.  I’ll have to ask some locals if they have anything that would be worth putting into this tank

Go big or go home 😂 

i have a couple of montiporas that would look sweet growing up the four columns 

I wish the cycle was done so I could just throw coral into it

So since the start of the cycle I was pretty sure the macros would probably die out due to lack of nitrates.. I have never been so wrong. The culerpa paspaloides and caulerpa prolifera are growing quite well
