I alao finally fished this little sharknose goby from the rear chambers, was living in there for a couple weeks! Seems to be fine, but still stays close to those overflows lol.

3 tanks on the go at the same time , that’s impressive!

how do you maintain the stability of these tanks?
The larger two i just dose reef fusion manually, although my LFS may be giving me a doser soon haha. Nano tanks, in general, i believe are easier to maintain with just frequent-ish small water changes, like an AWC setup, but manual. I still do 5g changes almost twice a week on any of them, but just started skimming the jbj (and doing 10g changes to drop nitrates), so hope to cut back on its maintenance soon. Feeding the same food at same times i think helps as well. I havnt changed foods in what seems like a decade (larrys froz and hikari dry). Hourly rounding helps too :D

Got the new light working, needed new power supply. Its a powerhouse, nanobox hybrid, 6 clusters and 6 t5. I replaced the T5s with mostly Blue+, and actinic. Its hanging over the RSM anemone tank. Things are doing pretty well overall in all tanks, thanks be to water changings.

Some quick little shots of the tanks recently

Well I have tried buying $200 in dragons breath macro for the anemone tank, but no one has offered for weeks. So I just purchased a bunch of little carpet nems for the RSM. My LFS had one nice one in, but it tumbled into a RFA and lost that battle. So now I am getting eight in the mail!

Going to start filling this tank in, once the maxi mini anemones settle, will add another BTA or two. Then comes some macro, SELL ME DRAGONS BREATH!, and finally gorgonians on magnets.

Tanks are going well, making some additions, some of my shrooms are splitting in the IM drop-off, so can recoup some monies there soon!
Finally scored a really nice trachy since the loss of my past centerpiece. Really good deal from Aust Aqua Farms, wasn't even on sale, but had to have it. Next is a nice red rim brain of some sort to go above it, maybe a favites. Also added a tiny rabbit fish to get a handle on all the calupera in the JBJ, the zoanthids/palys are getting overwhelmed by the algae as well as a few others. I'll move the fish to the RSM when time comes, to help it through the uglies before deciding to trade it in or finally to combine the water volumes.
