Update on the 6. Dragons breath is starting to really pop added more coral, frags have started to show growth. Switched to Red Sea pro salt, new frag rack. Parameters have been stable and slowly raising salinity to 1.025 from 1.024 and calcium to 440s from low 400s. Currently experiencing lime green algae, diatoms lasted for about a week and a half got 0 tds sourced water and they started disappearing.
Current livestock:
Macroalgae: dragons breath and blue hypnea

Coral: Duncan, hammer, 5 types of zoas, discosoma mushroom, ricordea, and a silver and blue star polyp.

Fish: blue damsel

inverts: 2 scarlet hermits, 4 blue legged hermits, sexy shrimp, and a margarita snail.

still looking to add a couple of gorgonians and maybe an easy sps( I have a hot spot right under the light that also highest point in tank) so I think it’s the perfect spot with the best flow but I’m letting the tank mature a lot more before I do that
