Hello, everyone!

We have a fluval evo 13.5 stock everything with an additional fluval 15 gallon pump, and protein skimmer.

Our livestock includes: a black ice clown, neon goby, 2 nessarius snails, 2 blue leg hermits, and a fire shrimp. We have a ricardea mushroom(sp?), A galaxea, a xenia, a chicken pox mushroom, a rainbow mushroom, and an ora red goniopora (does not like to come out often)

We have had our tank for about 4 months, and we are currently on a quest to make our goni come out. All our other corals are doing great- very colorful with pretty quick growth (don't actually know what quick is but significantly bigger over the course of a month)

We noticed our phosphates were high today so we added additional carbon. Here's our parameters for today:

Sel: 1.024
Alk: 10dkh
Calcium: 460
Magnesium: 1270-1280
Phosphates: .25
Nitrates: 2-5ppm

We have a couple other kits we need to restock, but from the info we have so far any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Good start to your system and your thread! I look forward to seeing more updates about this Fluval here in the future!

Fan of the clownfish, a great mascot for the tank!
