dual mp60 added to both side of the 187g. putting gyre pump on hold to see if mp60 does better job. currently mp60s are dialed at 20% at both side while gyre is at 90%. and shows more flow.

Yeah i'm old school, dont have the energy to track it via another ipad and scribble when my hand's wet, and i can clean it easily with the blade afterward.

most readings are dead center at the cross point.
those readings are what I currently run, no changes planed for my light intensity, and i don't ramp up or down, my lights stay at the same intensity for 8hrs daily, and controled by wifi plugs.

as for my frag tank, i run full blue when i'm introducing new fishes ( after qt ) and new corals, especially those high end zoas.

Moved about 50% of the rock and I gave up chasing down the fish bully, not in the mood to drain all the water out and just to get that squirrel fish out.

Up next: layout all the zoas on the sand for grow out

Dinos were out of control in my sps frag tank sand bed, maybe it has take a toll on me since I was using silica sand. But same sand was using in the zoa tank does not have this problem... but if it go. Sand less with crushed coral for now.

So I gave in and started 4th tank for nem only.

Tank 30L glass
Sump 30g
AI hydra
12/hr light schedule

No filtration, no skimmer, no dosing. Uses old tank water from the main DP as fresh water change.

And the anemones are really happy instead of their old cages. This is one week after their move in

So I put a ap700 over the frag tank and my zoas are really loving it.

Alright so I have to move within 2 month and this gives me chance to start fresh with proper layout in the new garage.

New place has solar ;)
And the new house is only 5 mins drive apart. So that makes moving easier. I’d rather move in summer than winter.

No HOA, free electricity, newly build, one floor plan, insulated garage, plus many many many more reason.

Blue tenuis is doing amazing, makes me wonder if I should try WD.

And some other corals
