    Bump for an update. What sort of nitrate level are you running on this tank?

    So sorry for not providing an update with my tank. I had an issue with my tank in thee past late Jan of this year and lost quite many nice frags and colonies. I have also upgrade the Hydra 52 to Hydra 52hd and things are coming back nicely.

    Slowly add introducing this tank into a wrasses tank also.

    Here is picture and will get more coming soon.

    Why the upgrade to HDs?

    I find there is pretty much never a need to go up on the power anyway, and you are giving up a lot of control options via apex

    The Red Digitata looks awesome behind the big blue acropora, is that a tort?

    Beautiful fish and Crocea Clam!

    The G4 Pros are sure nice led fixture. I have always been a fan of AI and thought I will like the Radion more. Just a personal preference. I have been a fan of AI Hydra, then upgraded to AI Hydra 52 and now AI Hydra 52HD. Just like the color and the ease of use AI app on my phone and iPad. I do not have an Apex. Thanks @Newb73.

    It is a bubble gum digita. Nearly a foot tall from the base up. The huge colony in front of the bbg digita is a purple stag. It is abt 12”-13” tall from the base and a couple of branches already touch the water surface now.

    I have a Oregon tort colony on the left of the pix near the small pump. A few nice frags; WD, RR Pink Floyd, Cali tort, angry bird rose milli are taking off now.
