Quick backstory this is my third tank started with a 54 corner 15 years ago. Then a bio cube 29. Had to sell due to deployment USAF. Got home from deployment and started searching for large tanks on Craigslist. Finally found one in January of 2019. Only catch was it was during a blizzard and needed gone that day. So for $800 I got a 210 gallon tank 2 eheim return pumps. 2 mp40s. One off brand power head. Seaside aquatics es7 protein skimmer, 60 inch current lights and150 lbs of live rock. Oh and a sump that I broke on the 3 hour drive from Illinois back to Wisconsin.

just some progression shots of my tank not in order bottom is from today. Can see I have some softies in the tank now just switched over from Fowlr to softy about two months ago. The pond basket is for my corals to attach to rubble rock.

As you can see fish are getting much larger especially my desjardini and emperor angel who is really in the middle of transitioning. Softies are starting to really take off. I’m in the middle of a home remodel and tank has been put on the back burner but these pics were from just now no filter just standard iPhone pics some on cool vivid and standard.

No I don’t think so. I don’t qt anything and firmly believe enough room feed well and hiding/ sleeping spaces and you won’t have disease issues. 13 fish and many large fish max me out I think.
