Happy coral with good PE. Still chilling on the rack but should be moving on to a rock soon if I can find a spot.

any chance I can still send my pic for december?
Generally there’s a little bit of leeway for timezone differences. Unfortunately, we are too far past that to accept December at this point. Note that you are allowed two non-consecutive misses and still be eligible. I hope this made sense

@Reefing102 @StatelineReefer @BranchingHammer

Month 3 update. Bonsai's encrusting more, no vertical growth yet.

I switched the lenses on my Radions to the high intensity version, then dialed down their intensity to get back to the same par. So far, I'm liking them since mine are mounted ~12" off the water so the 120 degree angle on the stock lenses doesn't really help me.

For my water this month, I've finally switched to full Moonshiners and stopped all water changes. Everything's doing well so far. Next batch of fish arrives this week, so we'll see how that goes for nutrient export.

Month 2 update. I've moved the frags to the spots that I thought they'd do best based on their reactions to the PAR while on the frag rack. So far, it looks like I put them in the correct spots :beaming-face-with-smiling-eyes:

The Bonzai is still doing the best of the 3 contest frags for me. Over the last month, it's grown maybe 1mm from 29mm to 30mm. However, the pic shows it's encrusting on the plug disk, and it's now mounted top center in my tank, directly under my G6 XR30 Blue @ ~300 PAR and a ton of flow.

For this month's ICP test, I've finally got all the Moonshiners chemicals in, plus mud and vitamins. I've also got the RO-DI filter upgrade to help remove the silicates- you can see a massive improvement from the quoted 1-month update post below. Not pictured but also helping out is a newly purchased and installed (after I had sent the ICP test off, unfortunately) Vecton Titan 850 UV in-line with my return pump.

Finally, I've got fish in the system after going fallow for 4 months after I lost all my previous fish to disease, so I'm happy to have some movement back in the tank!
