    My system has been running for approx 5 years time however I have went through swings of being really into the tank and neglecting it.

    Large photo gap from when i was in school and paid no attention to the tank IMG_5342.JPGJune 2017 as you can see my mushrooms and Candy canes didn't mind the neglect one bit

    Removal of the mushrooms from about 10 rocks caused most of my biological filtration to take a hit suffering from a small amount of cyanotic on a few of the rocks but the corals seem to be doing just fine

    I have had the red star for a few weeks now he seems to be doing good hopefully he will be able to have some longevity in the tank.
    Yes it was a blue linkia star however i have never had luck keeping one alive
