    Fresh cheato and new light schedule, now you can see the size of the algae bed and how it should be full and thriving haha,

    Cheato was the size of the palm of my hand.

    Not really sure. I'll have to do some research. I've never had a clam and I'm thinking it might be a cool addition to my tank :)

    Tonights update,

    I have been struggling abit down to alk swings, and something else.... time for another ICP. Lost my SSC colony, grown from a 2" frag with 4 years hard work put in :(

    Balling is no longer a stable method so i am now changing 10% water once a week to and running my levels as close to the salt as possible.

    A Calcium reactor is on the cards at Christmas i think!!!

    Heres a few pics of the corals doing better than others

    One to keep an eye on....

    Clams are loving the nice strong par from the new light

    Enjoy,

    ON the flip side, fresh cheato is in, but isn't doing too good, getting covered in rubbish again

    This is excellent. The corals and the cinematography. Your aquascape and placement create great depth. Love this.

    Looking great still. LOL, I run to the tank every day when I wake up and when I return from work. Check everything and then just watch the critters.

    Well I decided to take the plunge at the weekend and made the switch from dosing to this

    4214B31F-B0AC-430F-AD9A-58D600B6E89A.jpeg

    Doing it old school at the min with bubble count, down to having a dodgy ph probe and controller, so I’m on the hunt for a decent one if anybody has any experience??
