Do you worry about shading once the corals grow out?
That is actually the biggest issue with my tank. Adding t5s as a supplemental light source helped a lot.
Yeah, you seem like you really got them packed in there! Lol
Looks great! Have an updated fts?
Also, can you post a pic of where your hood opens? I'm about to make my own and I'm not sure how I want to make the hinge/door just yet
My canopy opens up in two ways, the front opens up just to feed and do other small stuff. The top can also be opened upwards so that the whole tank is accessible. If you have any questions PM me and I’ll try to help out any way I can.
What do you keep your parameters at? Alk, Calc, Mag, p04 and nitrates?
Also what media are you using in your calcium reactor?
I am using TLF reborn, and some type of magnesium supplement that goes into the reactor, I honestly forgot what it was called. I will post my parameters after I test tonight.
Sweet tank, better upgrade soon haha.
How long was the prior tank(or tanks) running before you transferred all the corals over to this one?
I've been in the hobby for about 5 years. Here's a vido from my old reef, from a while back.
P.S. for the tang police - I know I have 3 tangs in that tank, those were temporary rescues. I got rid of 2 shortly after getting them.
Cool, so some of the corals are 5 years old? I was asking how long had you been growing the corals/running the live rock before transferring to this new tank. Always curious how long the various livestock in systems has been established when viewing great results like yours.
I think several of my corals are pushing 5 years since I've bought them when I started this hobby. Unfortunately, I just lost one of my oldest corals it was a challice that died a few months ago when I switched to radions. =/
