Another empty tank shot.  I did add a dimmer tho for the light since it was way too bright.

I did place a macroalgae order with Reefcleaners, so should have a nice splash of green by the end of this week.

Yup, that's it.  Though in hindsight I wish I ordered a CUC since it's starting to get in the ugly phase.  Next round!

I love this light as well!  I do miss the blues occasionally, but I do have my Nanobox Tide lying around from my last contest pico so I could also make this a legit reef as well down the line.

Looks good! I think Caulerpa are fast growers, so I hope you can control them. Some red macro-algae and Gorgonians would look good too I think. 🙂

Yeah, I'm going to have to trim regularly.  Maybe get some inverts that will munch on it too for some natural control.

 

Red macro is definitely happening.

Mostly green, but will definitely add some splashes of red.

Very nice, is that the same console table as the 20 peninsula?

Different, but from the same West Elm midcentury furniture line as the one used for my 20g peninsula which currently has a printer and office supplies on it now in my home office.  
 

My whole house basically has the same midcentury furniture (bed and side tables also from the same line).

Close up of the craziness going on in my tank rn. Hair algae, cyano, even bryopsis (and more)!  😬
