Thanks, I don’t think I do anything really out of the ordinary. Good lighting and flow. Try to maintain some nitrate and phosphate with out letting them get too high. And I use some of the KZ products amino acid, flatworm stop, coral booster, and coral vitalizer, I think they help.

Do you always plant a backup?
D
Not always but I like to, you never know with acros, it’s saved my butt a few times having a back up. Especially with my favorites or really expensive ones. Some are just frags I cut with the intention of trading or selling that I didn’t let go. I also do it because I like cutting frags and selling, trading, frag swaps and all that but I don’t like cutting up my display colonies too much, but if I have a backup or grow out I can hack it up with no regrets

Thanks for your SPS tips. Went out and purchased them at BRS and will be trying them shortly.

Also, i wouldn't call it a tip, and i wouldn't necessarily recommend it, its just how i do things... my systems probably run a little "dirty" i don't really do much of any filtration, filter socks only when i have stirred stuff up, and most of the time i don't have a protein skimmer running.

You are very modest! I think your SPS's speak for themselves! You must be doing something right to have such phenomenal success.

Really appreciate your sharing your reefing experience and knowledge!
