    Update time. Placed all the mangroves where I want them and added an LED grow light above the right side of the tank. Mangrove placement is looking awesome, just need the rest of the group buyers to come pick theirs up. Added some turtle grass as well. Sand doesn’t seem deep enough but it looks pretty cool. May add more sand to the sump and have it down there. Despite many warnings of them being coral nippers. I added a Lemonpeel Angelfish. The LFS told me he was in another reefers tank for over a year and was a model citizen. So far, 3 days in he seems to be holding true to that statement. Always wanted one and its a beautiful fish. Thats two “with caution” fish now including the blotched rabbitfish. We’re breaking down borders and stereotypes here folks! My sump is now full of zoanthids from my 40g, the wrasse is taking care of a nudi problem.

    Update time. nudibranch are still present in the tank, without the neon wrasse their are no predators. Tried adding a yellow wrasse but the other fish beat the poor thing up. Slowly removing, dipping, and QT’ing my zoas in the 75g low boy sump. Small persistant cyano problem as well. Added red slime remover today, half dose. Has worked well in the past. my gold torch lost a few heads and the skeleton is bleaching. My only suspect is a calcium issue, my halimeda has grown quite large in my refugium and I suspect its eating up a lot of calcium. Other than that everything seems to be doing well.

    Mangroves! Gotta wait for all the other reefers that got in on the order to grab theirs before I place mine. Going to add a grow light above the mangroves to run a few hours a day. Also. I ordered some turtle grass. Need to beef up the sandbed on the right hand side for the grass, needless to say their will be some rescaping in the near future.

    Dont know if I can reveal my secret... however, the answer is..... Nothing! 😂 I tried adding phyo for a while but I always forgot and the bottle would expire.

    Wow. This 40g was started just about 11 months ago. Cannot believe its almost a year old. I truly miss my 65g but am so happy with the way this tank has matured. Made a short video today.

    Hmm. My alveopora doesnt seem to want to open lately. It was one of the happiest corals up until a few weeks ago. What could cause this?
  14. I dont remember the exact reason however my LFS explained that dinos will actually thrive right after a water change.

    They are all photo indeed. Ive just been collecting around town locally. However. Live-plants.com seems to be a good spot to order from.
