Wow najer!!! your journal is amazing from the very first page to the last, I love it!
There were times when I wanted to skip to the last page to take a peak to see if everything turned out well, but I kept reading without ruining the ending. What can I say, you're simply amazing, taking on task to save those corals and seeing them grow with beautiful colors - to me, is priceless. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the very kind words, having been nudged in this direct through some poor angel fish additions in the big tank it suddenly made sense to try and balance this without too much macro algae whilst still feeding heavily.
This is still a work in progress, I still need to get the scape done properly, watching the corals I am getting a feeling for what flow they do and don't like.
I do have additional "filtration" I might add, I will see where we are with nitrates and phos this weekend.
I want to scale this up to part of my big tank but that is taking a bit of planning. ;)

Stuff happened, lfs visit, I'm working 12 - 16-00 tomorrow and getting the orange sea fan for a big discount!
They want me to do 20 - 40 hours next week to cover vacation, I get paid in store credit / corals, what's not to like?! ;)

Little rescue bought home, it had started to let go for some reason, it had a little dip, snip and general tlc, half of it is fine and will go back to the shop tomorrow and the rest is under observation. ;)
Those are in the twins as it is easier to deal with the toxins, it is the same as my gold one! ;)

Orange fan gorg.
I un bagged three fans last Friday at the shop, I took the blueberry and someone had the lavender one.
I knew I was working today so set a price for the orange one that was still left taking my "wages" in to account! ;)

It would appear to have been hungry, this is about 10 minutes later before a feed.

Thinking of calling it the ginger medusa coral! ;)
