Happy to help, get the wyze cam set up this evening, you know she likes to move things, catch her salty handed! ;)
Its going to be a battle with these tanks. Shes seeing something totally different than me and wants to set them up how she wants them. I'm giving her tank 2...
For now until I'm ready to kick her out and get her own DT haha.

Don't be surprised if this message self destruct in next 5 minutes or so;)

The term give was loosely coined and thrown out there as a "compromise" that i fully intend to "take backsies" but in the interim is being used to keep her out of tank 1 for time being.:D

Compromise?? Is that a new town in AZ? Don't think I've been there.
Sounds self-explanatory to me
This is the translation I needed.

Is that right?! So it's getting what it needs from the water column? Do you target feed your other corals?

I broadcast feed the fish, an odd dash of liquid coral food every few days, no idea what my nutrient levels are so don't ask lol, it sort of works for me! :)

So yesterday during the deep clean I was moving things around... and behold when I picked up the porite rock, what was underneath it all? All 5 of my bumblebee snails. No wonder these guys were always hiding. They were getting pestered by the snails!
100% moved all the bumblebee snails to the sump. I’ll throw them back in the DT when I get another vermitid outbreak, but for now they can eat detritus.
Less than 24 hours later and I’ve seen 5 of my Christmas trees poking their heads out to survey the area. Hoping by tomorrow we will see full trees!

Good to know, I have one of these coming next week. I think there's only a couple bumblebees in the tank now anyway

Ok thanks. That's interesting. I don't feed the corals at all, just the fish.
I might give one of these a try if one comes my way. How hard can it be?! ;)

And I don't ask anyone what their numbers are because those numbers are only relevant to your tank and pretty meaningless to anyone else's .

I broadcast feed reef AB+
2x a week. Keep all my pumps and slimmer running. Should probably turn them off so the corals eat more but.... lazy.... lol

I like AB+ over reef roids a lottttt

but I do use polyp booster in conjunction sometimes

Since I cleaned the glass I thought I’d take a couple of pics to show y’all what I gots.
tank is a 75L cube and it’s been wet for just under 3 months. Dry Marco rock, dry Fiji pink sand started with brightwell ammonia and microbacter start blah blah blah :)
I have 2 frostbite clowns, red firefish, blood red shrimp, possibly a sexy shrimp and a whackload of snails.
corals are neon tip toadstool, devil’s hand leather, gsp , Xenia , festivus favites, blue maze goniastrea, grubes gorgonian, purple candelabra gorg , corky finger gorg, seafoam cyphastrea, appleberry montipora, purple bonsai acropora, forest fire digitata, orange ricordea florida, green tip frogspawn and a yellow tip hammer. Phew.
tank has a long way to go and it’s quite ‘green ‘but I’m pleased with it so far.
