Not sure what anecdotal evidence I can attest to this thread. I usually just lerk, but thought I’d post my 180 that was set up the beginning of August. It is heavily SPS. It was an upgrade from my 60 cube, however, the only rock that made the transfer were pieces that had corals. (Very few, most were left in the 60) I cycled the tank with 120lbs of carib sea life rock. I’m having the most success and color than ever (of course; I’ve spared no expense and have the most incredible setup compared to my old 60). A brown sps will show color in 3-4 days. Here’s the tank a few weeks ago, with some coral Snapshots.
