My FOWLER recently decided to pop ick after +70 days. Only 14 days after removing Cupramine that was kept at .3-.5 for 5 months. I may try Hypo next since I ran out of CryptoPro and short 3days of 10 day tx.

I’m just glad the Bacto and Algea Blooms are done. Pods are supercharged coating everything and GHA is needing mowing more often even tho low nutrient is tested. Cheato is very slow growing to outcompete GHA. CUC will be a challenge with going BB and Harliquine Wrasse finds even starfish tasty.

The tank looks amazing! Are you still only using the 6 pendants for lighting?

Yes, I only need 6 ReeFi Lamps and I have raised them 18" above the tank ramping up to 80% and focused the adjustable lense to narrow the light spread to 36" radius each pendant. I have SPS and Monti coloring up on the BB 48" below these lamps. Energy efficient that my use only peaks 128w of the 150w capasity. I highly recommend these lamps. Best color of coral and fish, shimmer, network interface, NW local customer service I have experienced for a USA constructed product. It is my understanding that a new build by ReeFi is currently underway that may have 9 tunable channels and +200w capability. So, I'm definitely watching the ReeFi Lab posts from Daniel Lu on the next release.
