    Hi!

    Hope you are well! :)

    Let me share with you the current state of my reef.

    As you can see the corals look pretty well but at the same time you can notice some lack of colour or maybe I got bored and I just find fault with reef :) Howbeit, I am not planning to change anything in keeping the balance.

    Have a good day!

    Frag to Colony

    One year ago I bought the little noname green SPS frag. For a long time there was no growth at all.

    But two months ago this frag suddenly decided to be the real colony and showed me that such rapid growth.

    And the best part is, it got the blue tips.

    How do you deal with algae? Are you running a reactor for media? What about any additives such as kz products or acro power or Red Sea supps?

    Hi, thank you!

    You are welcome!

    Thanks for your attention!

    I truly enjoy being a part of R2R community.

    I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news. During this week I lost 2 fishes. The chain of circumstances began last Friday when I found that my Chelmon rostratus got into bad moods and refused to consume a frozen bloodworm and artemia. And today I found one of my Lyretail Anthias in the liverock... Current population of the reef is Pseudocheilinus hexataenia and Lyretail Anthias.

    What type of algae do you mean?
    The most difficult was the deal with dinoflagellates. It was something like a local war and I used several methods from mechanical filtration (5 micron), cleaning the sand to adding nannochloropsis also I increased the level of nitrate and phosphate.

    No

    I had some bad experience with FM additives. During the last 2 years I have been using the Reef Crystals sea salt that has already included a lot of additional trace elements. And adding trace elements to this mix could be too dangerous for Acros. So I decided to use only water changes.
