So I have a big Reefing/Birthday planned, last night I mixed up fresh batch of water and gathered my supplies for the new corals coming in today :) I’m also going to set up my dosing pumps and test them with just RO water for a few days to make sure they are operating properly.. a hint was dropped last night I may be getting some reefing related gifts ;)

Fuge looks healthy, how often do you harvest it?
it‘s doing surprisingly well, cheap $10 light runs about 16 hrs a day.. I cut it back every three weeks when I do my water changes and heavier tank maintenance. Macros in the display where worrying me a little so I thought I would try a small fuge for nutrient export.
