    Looking good. I guess your parameters are very stable.

    Well I've gotten a little carried away and did two 50 percent water changes in two weeks, ha. Going to do smaller water changes from here on.

    Have two hydras (lights) on a frame ready to go on, and egg crate is in, and corals arrive tonight and tomorrow.

    I will say to anyone new and reading this, spend the money and get an ATO (auto top off).

    Pics to follow.

    Hey Poacher, sorry for the late reply, been out of country and then a bunch of work when I get back.

    Yes smothering can happen, but this is a frag tank so can move them around. The pics you have quoted are Zoa's.
