    I don't really share much pics but I figured I would start so I can document my journey and sps growth. I will upload new photos of new sps as I get them or have time to take more photos. Here are a few to start with.

    Cornbred Maleficent. This is my favorite coral I own. I use to have the BC spainbow in this spot as you can see the Maleficent growing over it around the edges.

    Always a killer combo! Seems to be the standard nowadays and appears to get great results. I have the ATI 8 bulb power module hybrid and still can't seem to get colors quite like that, other factors could be involved of course. Keep it up man looks great!

    I bought a 28 pack of frags from a vendor and they didn't have any names on the bags so I not sure what any of the frags really are. Here is one I got that has seemed to finish encrusting and might start to shoot some branches out. I hope it turns into something nice.

    Thanks everyone for the compilments!

    Alk is 8.5
    Calc 500
    Mag 1300
    Ph 7.65 - 7.85
    Po4 0
    No3 close to 0

    I grow chaeto which keeps nutrients down. I don't dose anything but did try to dose some aminos for a couple of weeks but I started to notice algae on my return nozzles and my back glass getting more dirty than usual so I stopped.
