That girl's tank is unbelievable. Makes me want to throw in the towel on my display! Thanks for featuring an awesome tank like that. Find some more tanks like that and make more videos for us:)
I’m working on it! I actually love featuring other tanks as it’s interesting to compare different styles of reefing and learn from each-other. I’m going to be in Vancouver next month and will try and find a tank or two to check out and film
While I’m there . Also going to be in Connecticut for KOR in a few weeks!

I'm giving it a try as well. Here's a few shots of the acros I'm trying it on.

Each tip I snipped I glued next to the frag, about 1/2" away. I did it to about 7 total frags in my system that had a few branches worth trying this on.

Remind me to check back in a month or two if I forget. :)
2 week update. Every cut is now healed with new polyps. The tips that were glued next to the original frag are starting to encrust. The master frag is still encrusting as usual.

pH varies between 8.0 - 8.3, dKH around 8.5-8.7 (dosing manually still, about 100ml a day). Nitrates are 10ppm, phosphate is 0.13ppm. Calcium is 440ppm, Mag is 1320ppm.

PAR at the level these frags are at varies between 400 and 280, I'm running an 8 bulb ATI Powermodule (LED Wifi version).
