Recently, I have been personally concerned about health of the coral. for long term NO3 & PO4 & organic, both are in low-standard condition.Unfortunately, the corals are only amazingly colored, just to resist the powerful light, and they are not growing well.It wasn't until recently that I DIY'd an automatic feeder and fed it manually that the coral health started to improve.
I would like to say more about why I use automatic feeder, because I am so lazy and often forgot something, so I need it.

I control the organic to red slime algae may happen, and use AF Bio to increase the activity of nitrifying bacteria in my tank.
Today, my tank's NO3 3~5 ppm by Hanna 781 ,PO4 0.01~0.03 ppm by Hanna 736.

The link below is a video of my nano reef tank.



In the next issue of this topic,In the next issue of this topic, I expect to show the growth records of individual frag .

Amazing tank. As for the number of fish, hey - the tank seems to be doing awesome (I've had a similar number of fish in a 25-gallon). Plus, space is most likely a premium in Taiwan...
Cultural differences about the treatment of animals aside, my god. There's actually 2 hippos and at least 20 others. It gets worse with every view. Dude is collecting fish like they're infinity gems. I've seen more conservatively stocked tanks on 5 Minute Craft videos.

I refuse to belive this is real. Those fish would have beat each other to death within hours. Not to mention the nutrient levels he's posting.

I counted 3 tangs, lol. I think that's a "Go To Jail, Directly To Jail" offence with the Tang Police... :eek:

Tanks like this make our entire hobby look bad.

It’s selfish - a fish that swims hundreds of miles a day in an 18” cube. User probably has some terrible instagram to go with it.

Garbage tank, PETA fuel.

It’s a shame we allow this on R2R, when you consider the what our hobby is already facing.

There are some amazing things that can happen.
Recently, my two angels (Argi , Flameback) had mating behavior in the evening, but I don't know if there is any chance for the two species to breed successfully here.

There are a few fish in there that I've been keeping for 4 years, and even the clownfish have laid eggs a few times.
I spent a lot of time observing and planning the order of each fish in the tank.
I make sure each fish has its own bed at night, and feed them 4 times a day so that they don't fight for hunger.

I should think about this issue.
Because I always buy baby size fish, when it grows to about 10cm, I will transfer it to my friend's big tank.
