    I have mine on an EVO 13.5 gallon. And I have it so that the intensity changes throughout the day; some are 15-100% with 1.5 seconds; some are 30-75% with 2.5 seconds. I decrease the intensity at night so the fish can feel comfortable to rest/sleep.

    Adding water volume

    if the water evaporated and you add the water the salinity won't increase.

    1st Marine Reef EVO - 1 year old!

    Tank turned 1 year on July 6th, 2018. I've put this tank through A LOT of changes in a short period of time. I will say that, except for a 3 week period, I've kept up with weekly water changes. I do test periodically but I usually keep a close eye on the corals. I only lost 1 coral (a red montipora setosa) that bleached after I did not conduct water changes for 3 weeks. A lot of lessons learned. Just to sum a few things I wish I did: taken my time planning out a rockscape before adding corals never buying the Jebao SW2 (it sucks) bought a paired Ocellaris pair instead of the generic Petco clowns I believe my ideal tank is a 20 gallon penisular - but that will have to wait a while. Tried and died: a conch a red sea star Livestock that disappeared: a green chromis snails Troopers: hermit crabs ocellaris clowns Euphylia GSP Xenia green BTA utter chaos palys green toadstool leather for it's 1 year anniversary I bought an AI Prime HD (on sale); the Current USA Orbit light on my tank currently sits very close to the water and I don't like it there - it gets in the way when fidgeting inside the tank. Future Plans: an ATO as well to give the tank more stability. add a fiji toadstool leather Thank to everyone in this community who responded to my questions and concerns. It is much appreciated 😜
  8. True. But aesthetically I hated the look of the EVO stock lights - it was either too white or too blue - no in-between. I love the controllability of the AI Prime HD from what I've seen. I also didn't like how low the EVO light sat on the tank.

    Different Colored Sands?

    What sand do you use now? I saw this really pretty fine sand on a youtube reef video but would hate to have sand blowing all over the tank.
  10. I saw the biggest growth when I switched to a Current Orbit. I just bought an AI Prime HD today (thanks to a 20% off sale lol)

    MrJDanP's Nano Reef Build - Chalice growth!

    Sometimes some of the tentacles spin around due to the motion/flow and look like they are going to break off. I would not worry tbh unless the coral starts to rot or lose its flesh.

    Planing on AI Prime HD for 10 gallon - Unless...

    how's the growth?

    growth rate of Xenia

    The 'species' I have in my tank went from one little polyp in February to a 5-inch handful in May of this year. It depends. Because I've had frags of it that melted too. I've had more success with the pink compared to the white.

    0 phosphates but there's still algae

    What kind of algae?

    So far the clowns have ignored the BTA. But today I saw the female clown plunge her head into the anemone a few times.
