    Welcome to the never-ending journey of understanding reef aquarium lighting. I've been studying this aspect since the mid-90's and I now know less than when I started. ;)

    I actually hope that the new salt will bring back some more colour to the tank.
    It is my intention to send a sample of each salt+water mix for a full ICP test in order to find some differences.
    There are differences in alkalinity, but I have no idea about the metals or other major and minor elements.

    The result will be interesting to see.

    Dang, that is giving us hope..... ;Sorry
    Lol

    I just watched the video of Reef Builders with Vincent Chalias about his farm in Indonesia, comparing the ocean corals and our farmed corals.
    It is interesting to see the differences.
    Makes me also happy to have some brown corals :)

    Brownies are my favorite things to ever buy! I've had some true gems come from brown blobs, some of them taking a year to start coloring up.

    I love cheap brown rescues, you never know what you'll end up with.

    Water change done today with the new salt.
    I like it. The new buckets even have new design... this is promising.

    As the rock where the mystic sunset monti was growing is now completely covered with it, I took hammer and chisel to get some more frags.

    Your work isnt in vain at least. The articles are dense. Not easily combed through. Scary.

    I recently switched back to Tropic Marin. Was using the classic before then switched to blue bucket. Now switching to Pro Reef to try something a little different :)

    Those montis are growing like weeds!
