    Oddly my phosphates decreased by half. I'll check them again tonight, but it was a sharp drop off in phosphates the day after the dump.

    Couple of corals looked very nice tonight, so I thought I would share

    Corals look great! Is that the confetti in the last pic?

    It is! Growing like a weed right now. Although I think it gets too much light since right now you can't really see the transitioning colors except in shaded parts of the coral. Once it's grown to a decent size colony I may try moving it down to lower PAR to achieve that awesome explosion of multiple colors like the mother colony has at Vivid.

    What did you end up doing with the broken red planet?

    It is now on the bottom right side of my tank. Literally the only place I could find room for it, 2" off the sand bed.

    The whole tan looks overcrowded, you send it all to me. If it helps, my daughter is a Sea Aggie. But seriously, your tank looks great, thanks for sharing it.

    Cool! She graduated a year ago. Marine science major, bio minor. Thinks I'm a little touched in the head, a little cool for my reef obsession. It's amazing how many Aggie's she runs into as she travels around. Thanks again Gig'em for sharing.

    Thought I would share some side photos of the tank. As usual, sorry for the less than superb iPhone photo quality...

    This pink hyacinthus (the GE PCP ) is getting insanely big. I feel like it's going to burst through my tank walls by the end of the year!

    I'll try to get over there sometime soon and take a nice 4k video of his tank. His colors are mind-boggling and that tank is crammed full of colonies.

    FarmerTy was nice enough to come over and film a video of my tank. Enjoy!

    It was quite the commute (3 mins), but I'm always happy to help out a friend. Even still, the camera didn't capture the brilliance of color in his tank. Its easy on the eyes!
