June 29th Update:

  • Acquired a Jebao 3.4 wireless doser (Used locally)
  • Picked up my dosing container and tube holder from BRS.
  • Picked up Tropic Marin All-For-Reef to simplify my dosing schedule.
    • Set to 3mL per day.
  • Ordered MightyJet Pump Upgrade (RFG's here I come!)
  • Ordered a second AI Prime 16 HD to compensate for shadows and lack of light in certain areas.
  • My clean up crew order from ReefCleaners should be here this week.


One of clown fish started to host! It ended up choosing the smaller BTA over the larger one though. I'm hoping its companion will join it soon. Such an amazing experience seeing the interaction between the clown and nem.

What about skimmer? How long has the tank been set up? What's your phos and nitrate?

I use the NuvoSkim DC, fits in the back really nice. And the skimming has been perfect for me.

My phosphates and nitrates are:
Nitrate - is about 2.5ppm atm (done with API master test, I'm pretty sure this is inaccurate - the colors are so close to 0 and 5.0ppm.

Phos - 0.7 at last water change this past saturday.


I'm told I should get my nitrates higher, but not sure how to go about that.

I got a few new corals today! I'll get up some pictures when they settle in.

  • Fruit Loops Zoanthids
  • Eagle Eye Zoanthids
  • Rainbow Ricordea Mushroom

Also learned/realized my flow was wayyyy too intense - I turned off one wavemaker and everything opened up quite nicely! I'll make sure to get a photo/video of that as well.
