    That's a great looking colony of people water zoas. Those other look really nice too. It's nice to see true colonies and not 5-6 polyps being called a mini colony.

    Thank you @tupes that was my first zoa and just counted them, there approx 140 polyps. You are absolutely correct though.

    Thank you @bontrager I currently have a maxi jet 600 as return which will soon be upgraded. I am running a AI prime which I am making a video on my schedule this week to share with everyone and also have the aftermarket IM acrylic filtration basket. There a Hydor 425gph inside I believe. Second to smallest of the Hydor line.

    Very nice. Can you tell us a little about the quantity and "type" of "live rock" that you have used?

    Some non photos would be sweet. I got this frag holder but there’s other types too on amazon, it [​IMG]looks sweet and was able to pop a frag right in!

    20171203_201636.jpg This little guy I also got recently, I knew it was a mushroom but didn't know what kind since it was honestly about 1/4 inch big and it's grown to be a pretty awesome Ultra Rhodactis Mushroom!! Can't wait until it's bigger!!

    Right now I solely rely on water changes. I'm using Tropic marin bio actif and love it!! But I've added a numerous amount of frags to the tank which I will show soon and a my senior corals are huge so I'm shopping for a skimmer. I love my tank it is a challenge on a day to day basis and I learn a lot on how to keep the right parameters to make everyone happy! Thank you for your comment.... also I just won the tunze osmolator ATO from our contest so I will also be doing an unboxing and instalation video on my YouTube channel coming soon! I also keep daily posts on my instagram

    Nice looking tank? How is your growth with the AI prime? I have the same tank with a Kessil A80 on it and I am not seeing much growth with it. I am thinking of swapping it for an AI Prime HD.

    I've had my tank for almost 2 yrs now and some of my original corals I've taken out or traded except for my birds nest and cap. I would say that growth isn't bad with the prime knowing that they were only 1 inch frags when purchased
