The problems of success ;) I have only heard mention of the tropic marine all for reef. Sounds pretty awesome though.
Yea it's a good problem to have for sure! Watched all the videos from BRS about kalk, 2 part, all for reef and still can't decide lol

Got my All for Reef yesterday and have started dosing. Alk seems to be holding steady now at around 9.6, but I'll keep testing this week to see how it goes.

Tank is doing well though and I hope that starting to dose will increase growth.

It has been almost a full week of dosing All for Reef. I think I have dialed in the dose as the Alk is now steady! Now I guess it's just a waiting game to see if it helps the coral!! Only took a few pictures of of the Stylo and monti for comparison.

Got my first Acro on the TSA live sale this weekend. I am excited and nervous even though the other SPS are doing well. I have been trying to research a little bit about it, it is a Vivids Rainbow Acro and they say it is an easier acro. Does anyone have any experience with it? Fingers crossed that I don't kill it ;Nailbiting

Haven't gotten a chance to get to TSA yet to pick up the new acro but I did a water change yesterday to frag up some coral. The Jedi Mindtrick looked so good I had to take a top down shot. So much color and growth I love it!!

It is a rainy day today so I took the drive over to TSA and picked up the new acro. It was actually bigger than I thought it would be so happy with that. I'm super excited to see how this does in the tank!

I think the acro is settling in nicely, I have noticed a few areas that look like they are getting the greenish color back. I also think I'm starting to get good polyp extension but it's hard to tell since it isn't fully colored back up yet. I traded in my 8+ head Frogspawn/ Frammer with a LFS for a nice amount of store credit. I maybe jumping the gun but I'm thinking of adding a few higher end acros this weekend. I added back in the bigger hydor Koralia Powerhead on the opposite side in the back. I noticed the corner under the Icecap 2k was becoming a dead spot. Helped tremendously and I think it adds some more flow without being too much!

Think you may get have caught acrovid 19. All those who contract this become helpless to buying and adding sticks to their tanks. As always though looking great! Good idea to put the hydro back in to help take care of the dead spot. Like lights, multiple source points of flow can be important instead of one really big point of flow.

Well I couldn't wait any longer I just had to go pick up some more sticks!! I picked up a big piece of ASD Rainbow millipora, a nice little chunky piece of Walt Disney and an nice size piece of one that I think they said was JF Sour Twist, but I'm not 100% sure. I wasn't able to get the greatest pictures but I'll try again tomorrow! I'm probably going to have to remount them too but figured they are in ok spots to start.

Been a little while since I updated. New acros seem to be settling in. The Walt Disney and rainbow milli are starting to get some more color and my Vivids rainbow has grown over the sides of the plug. There are a couple of spots that now have green on it! I'll hopefully be starting on my frag tank this week, finally! Also signed up for the secret Santa this year can not wait for the pairings to start, it looked like so much fun last year!!
