Ah nice! Looking great. I love those damsels. I got one for the same reason a few tanks ago and it did a wonderful job at cleaning up the flatworms. 

Thanks! Yeah, they really did a great job. My tank glass was covered in flatworms just a few days ago but I don't see any now.

Some updated shots. Also received an order of caulerpa peltata yesterday that I didn't even remember ordering (I have a problem). 😅

Unfortunately sargassum didn't last. Seems pretty hard to keep in aquariums. Everything else is doing great tho. Recent shots.

Caulerpa peltata (which seems like a pretty slow grower compared to my other caulerpa)

I’ve been following along with this beautiful tank and the macro algae tank Inappropriate Reefer has built and think I might need to start one as well. Ever considered putting together macro algae “frag packs”? You have quite an amazing collection at this point.

Nice!  You definitely should.  Would be nice to see more around.

 

Haven't thought much about selling/shipping, Maybe down the line.

Always admire the work you put into making these macro tanks so beautiful. Very Crisp. 🧐

Update time.

 

Finally got a hold of these yellow dwarf feather dusters.  Been looking for these specific ones for awhile now for this tank.

FTS with the new worms.

Also added a Tail Spot Blenny!  Named him Blen Affleck.

My grape caulerpa also went sexual (bummer b/c most of it is gone now).  Always a risk when you keep caulerpa. I usually just remove the dead leaves, do a big water change, and run carbon.

New macroalgae additions!

 

This super cool Portieria (just a guess at the ID).  Looks like it's an alien plant.

And a bunch of Galaxaura (been on my wishlist for awhile).

That Portieria is insane looking! Like a floating artery! I bet it will root into your rock work readily.

 

I love those feather dusters, tube worms are a great addition to this reef!

 

Incredible as always @Tigahboy!

Thank you! I'm pretty happy with how this one has turned out. There's over 17 types of algae in here now.

Still need to finalize placement for the Galaxaura (it covers up the valley too much where it is now), but here's a shot with the new additions.

Moved the galaxaura off the sand and onto the rockwork to keep the valley clear.

@Tigahboy if you don't mind me asking, I was thinking of doing some adding some macro to my tank, is there a reason most macro tanks I see only have gorgonians and mushrooms or Zola's or is it just personal taste? I have a starting mixed reef with sps, lps, and soft corals. Also do you have to dose anything in your tank? Also would snails and emerald crabs become a problem?

Wow it looks really nice grown in. I like the way it goes right to the top of the water. 
 

Do you have any blue plating sponge in there? Not sure what it looks like under white lighting, is that what the tan piece is below the feather duster?
