    Nice shots. I see you removed the bright rock from the tank. What bulbs are you using in your hybrid?

    Thank you!!!

    I put it in the sump, it started to grow algae pretty quickly. Give it some time in the sump and see what happens!

    Back to front blue+, coral plus, actinic, blue+

    After doing the video on my gyre schedule it has been changed completely! With the help of CJ he was able to come up with the Gyre advanced controller standing wave settings. Of course this needs to be tweaked for your specific tank.

    This is how I am running mine!

    Walked in from work, went straight to the tank. Noticed 2 corals in the back all but dead. Opened the lab up to test the water, alk 7.4, calcium 390, mag 1300, phosphates .04, ph 8, temp 78. Very strange! Patiently waiting for @Bulk Reef Supply to get their 2 part in stock so I can get some and get my alk straightened out. Plus it’s not a bad idea to have some of this stuff on hand!

    Also my two 40 gallon RODI containers are almost empty so time to fill them up!

    How is that Santa Monica Rain2 Working for you? Do you recommend it? I've got a Reefer 525XL with a Huge bioload and I was debating the RAIN2 for nutrient control.

    It’s a great algae turf scrubber! I have nothing negative to say about it, compared to others I prefer the rain. It’s 100% waterproof!

    I lost a prized chalice two days ago I'm still hurting, My ATK is acting up and salinity shot up for 3 days before I realized the top off was still full.
    Running Kalk with the Atk is troublesome to say the least. Hope yours come around. BTW Nice mail box over the sump! is that what I think it is?

    Although a couple of SPS pieces are struggling everything else seems to be doing great! Just need @Bulk Reef Supply to get their 2 part in stock!

    @SantaMonica RAIN2 and Nyos 120 doing a little to well. Nitrates 0 (this tank has never registered nitrates) and phosphates 0 now! Also 80 gallons of RODI on tap!
