This is my Norwegian Reef Tank.
I study most of the year in Poland, so I only get to look after it during vacations.
This is the opposite of what most reefers are doing; being much more away from the tank then with it.
The biggest vacation is in the summer where I can play with it from beginning of July until some time in September.
Then I don't get back to Norway before Christmas. Christmas vacation is usually 1.5-2 weeks.
If I'm lucky, like this year, I have winter break for a couple of weeks around this part of year.
And lastly, if we are lucky, we get about one week Easter break in April.

Tuned down the flow in the tank from what I calculated to be about 125X turnover, to a more sensible 35X.
I turned up the flow in the tank significantly while home for Christmas break this year, to try and inhibit algae growing in the tank.
That was successful, but the sand was blown all over the place
Did two large water changes, right before going back to Poland for maybe the last time, so I hope that 35X turnover will be sufficient to avoid algae and rather promote polyp extension
