Not much happening since the last update. Got a few more corals. Had a bad experience with some green chromis. A bit of algae here, there and everywhere as expected.

Finally added a back to the tank. Black fabric on a pvc pipe. Looks good and I can remove it whenever. Some horrible pics for everyone. Everything looks washed out here. I only have the viparspectra at 1-2% white and blue at 42%. Looks good irl but the iPhone pics even with filters leaves a bit to be desired.

Found an old picture of my previous tank. This is circa 2006. Iirc, it crashed a year or two later. Current tank looks like a barren wasteland relatively speaking.

Added an octospawn, torch and hammer plus my zoas are still growing.

Anyone have any idea what the sps is? It came on a rock i for from my lfs that had some palys and I was using to seed the tank? Excuse the horrible pics.

Again, excuse the crayon colors. Between the blue lights, my phone and filters it’s a bit of a show.

Do have a question. The octospawn is nice and huge. The torch doing good too. The hammer in between is a little underwhelming. Maybe because it’s just small but it doesn’t move around at all. I’m thinking it needs more water movement or to go a little high. Not sure.

Thoughts?

Thanks. Still curious about the hammer and whether it needs more flow. Maybe I’ll post the question elsewhere.
Hammer doesn’t need much flow but that need to be random. If you find a place every so ofte gets a little blow it will thrive. Yous is small too don’t expect much of a swaying from it.
