Hello r2r, my name is Noxel and I’m 15 as of 2 weeks ago. My reef tank is around the 9 month mark and I just wanted to get some opinions. Currently housing 3 fish but more are come. Thanks for letting me share my little ecosystem!

Looks good, like the macros! You have lots of light on that tank too :)
Thank you! The corals have seemed to like the extra light I have added. Been an experiment but I think I’ve found the sweet spot.

Thank you! Gonna load it up with some more macros and corals. It’s been a fun ride even with all the negatives like disease outbreak. I think it’s finally starting to get back on track and I’m really excited. I’ll try to update this thread every once in a while just to see how the progression is. Thanks for viewing, have a nice day!

You need to add some GSP! I bet it would thrive in your tank.

when I was your age I had a 29 gallon bow tank that was terrible looking. I didn’t want coral then, just fish?
fast forward. I have a 425xl with no fish!

I like the GSP idea also. Put some on a fist sized rock right in the middle there in front. Would like great IMO

Love the Macroalgae. I'll be doing the same in my new build. What type do you have in there. Looking great so far! NIce work....
It was bought as c. prolifera but I think I it might be a different species. If you’re in the states I can link a place that has lots of cheap macro and gorgs, great quality aswell. A pint of macro for like 10$
