Been here for a bit but never posted the first tank I did. I've had some ups and downs with only 1 coral death since JAN when I started. The constant battle of GHA then Cyano. Which you might be able to see a bit still. BUT I WAS COVERED IN IT.

Specs:
Tank: IM 15G
Light: noopsyche k7 mini
skimmer: bubble magus mini q
ATO: magtool duetto v2
Powerhead: ZKSJ mini wavemaker DC 790GPH

fish/CUC Stocking:
1x fire fish
1x purple pincushion urchin
3x scarlet hermits
1x blue legged hermit
4x nassarius snails
1x turbo snail
3x trochus snails

Corals if I can remember what they are lol:
Aussie teal duncan
Candy Crush Platygyra
Orange Gusher Rhodactis Mushroom
Flame tip diaseris plate
Zoanthids but no clue what the "cool name" is.
Firework cloves
blue tip Frogspawn
The green tip in the very front is either a torch or hammer. I'm terrible with coral identification...

Well I pretty much have no more algae. Between the inverts and high amphipod/copepod population. I’ve had zero maintenance to do in the last 2 weeks. I’d say my tank is finally at a happy stage.

Glad you got rid of the algae!
