I always give Adam a hard time about the names he comes up with.


I will be shipping again in roughly a month as I want my colors to fully settle back in.

lol wouldn't have it any other way, my friend. super impressive as always! this thread just does not get old.

I took some pics as I needed to make some today. The ingredients are tilapia, shrimp, scallops and this time I added reefroids. Total cost was $14 and makes twice as much, if not more than lrs reef frenzy.

Here are the ingredients

I cut the middle and a little bit of the fish tails off as I find it had to blend.

I cut the fish into chunks to make it easy to blend.

Added a little reef roids and I blend only half of the food at once so I can have fine particles and some large

Here it is bagged up and ready to freeze.

You got all of that for $14? The shrimp alone would cost me $14 around here.

You always make every coral look so amazing Bubba! :D I've finally settled and I've got three xr30 pro's coming for the new tank :D you're partially to blame haha
You can't go wrong with those. I think you will like the switch from your old lighting.

I'm really excited to finally get them and try them out! I'm getting the three to start with over a 4.5ft waterbox so we'll see if I need another down the line! :)

Does it look similar to ARC Fireworks?
To me it’s not. I personally don’t like the fireworks at all. I took a pic of mine way back on post #2868 if you want to check it out.

Tank is 4 months and a week old today. I was having an issue with my sand turning brown in areas so I added a uv sterilizer directly to the display and did a blackout on the tank. So far it seemed to have worked but I’ll leave The sterilizer in for another week or so to make sure.

Other than the sand issue the corals are looking pretty good and growing. I took a short video to share and for those who don’t want to watch a video here is a pic.

Also I tested my nutrients today to discover my no3 close to 50ppm and po4 .19. Even though my corals are looking good I don’t feel comfortable with those numbers so I’m adding a refugium again.
