Very nice, what are your nitrates and phos, how much flow is there in the fuge?
Thanks!

Fuge gets plenty of flow... i actually have to use a ball valve to control the flow.. otherwise it would be a silty mess due to the miracle mud.

Hey family a few more updates. Nem still hanging in there as of this morning no further deflating so thats good. Hopefully ill be adding it back in the main display based on continued positive results. I added a flameback hawkfish and a spotted Kole Eye tang.

Nice! Me too great looking fish and so underrated as far as beauty and upkeep. I picked mine up from Ocean Life near the galleria. Thanks, i can almost rest now... just waiting for the Mag anemone to get better!

More updates! So i decided to add 2 Kessil A360X tuna blues, not for par (not needed at ALL) but for enhanced shimmer. When the lights are ramping up you can really see the Kessil shimmer, unfortunately once the Orpheks get near 50% they simply over power the Kessils. See pix below and video of that Kessil shimmer here

Hey guys here the latest update. Sent off an ICP test yesterday.... (Link to my 03/17 Result) needing to boost nutrients in my tank. Will probably add more fish to help. Since im on the ATI program, im dosing ATI-N diluted 5-1. Ive been slowing increasing my dosage...im currently dosing 50ml of the solution per day...and will likely increase it. The kessil spot lights (A360X) do a great job of adding shimmer and little bit of par to the tank. My Magnifica Anemone is still trucking along...fingers crossed. Looks like its getting bigger? Could be my eyes...but no more deflating thus far... Below is a pic of the latest:

Tank looks great.

Since you're local, have you looked into the Reef Moonshiners group on Facebook? Andre has been helping get my tank on track, really good dude.
