Been a while since last update, changes are coming. My new custom frag tank was ordered the other day, 48"x24"x14" all glass, peninsula style. Also got a Geo 612x2 calcium reactor, carbon doser, and Milwaukee PH monitor. Planning on having everything set up by Christmas but the sooner the better.
The tank is doing good and progressing well. With about 60 different acros, space is starting to get tight now. Everything will be moved to the frag and only select pieces will be planted back into the display

For dosing i use BRS alk, cal, and mag. Trace elements are done with Red Sea Trace Colors. Aminos are Aquavitro Fuel. Coral spot feeding with Reef Roids. I try to do a 20-30 gallon WC every two weeks but that doesn't happen all the time. Filter socks, Nyos skimmer and fuge. I have an auto feeder go off 3 times a day, I feed 1 cube of mysis twice a day, and nori every day. I do have 16 fish so i feed a lot.
I try keep my numbers, alk-8.5 to 9.2, cal-400 to 450, mag 1300-1400, NO3~5 to 10 and PO4-0.02 to 0.07
Last test was alk-9, cal-400, mag-1300, NO3-2.5, PO4-0.05

After seeing your Angry Bird colony in a couple different threads, I found this hoping to see what it looked like when you got it. Wow! What a difference in 15-months. Good job! How is the TGC Acrolandia doing?

Great grower and you have it super colored up, like most your sticks. With your auto feeder 3x a day, what is that dropping, just pellets?

Awesome tank and nice coral collections!
How long you have the cherry Bomb started branching?
Thank you. It fully encrusted its disk in about 8 months. Took another 4 or so for branches to grow out.
Ive never tried to cut the tips to try and encourage growth. As long as polyps are out, I leave it be.

Thank you, mine took similar time for branching, but still a slow growth!
How is your frag tank doing? Did you hook it to the DT or a separate system?
Just keep things as stable as possible. Frag tank is doing good. Yes its all one system. Ive moved some pieces over but still need to do another 10 or so. Ive got a list of corals I still want to get but still no room in the display.
