Beautiful tank. Love the scape and huge variety of fish.
Any problems with aggression?
Thank you.

Some aggression but nothing serious. Once in a while I see a small scar on a fish but it always heals up. I think some were caused by bumping into rocks.

I meant with the wife. Lol kidding
Thanks

Luckily no aggression there neither. I stopped buying stuff for quite a while so she is not as annoyed as she used to be last Black Friday...

Another update: tank has been stable for a few weeks now and I have done a series of water change. 30 gallon per day for 7 straight days early May and I have been testing Alk and Calcium daily. The tank is in its best status and all the frags are coloring up nicely and most are showing signs of new growth. However my cell phone photos suck so I don't have any macro shots.

And new screen tops. I kept on glass cover so I can put something on top when I am working in the tank.

Quick video of the fish feeding on seaweed this morning. Sorry in advance for the intense blue. The lights just went on.

The salt I bought from a local reefer is very low on Alk, around 4 to be exact. Luckily i don’t do big water changes. 30 gallon new water in a 400 gallon system is not a big deal.

Love your tank, do you have any issues with the angels nipping at your corals, and any reason why you went with radions over AI 26?

Thank you!

The angles nips at the frags quite often but no real damage. But I don’t have any polyp extension for the same reason. The growth has been good so I am not worried.

I went with Radions because they are supposed to be the best LED around and I already have a ton of vortechs and I don’t want to use another interface to control the lights. So far they have worked pretty well.

Took some more photos today. The tank is doing quite well and the photo shows some interesting growth.

I don't know the name of this one but you can clearly see the two little nubs popping out from the base. I have had this one for over two months and it has been spreading out from the base slowly and this is the first time it shoots new stems out from the bottom so I am pretty excited.

Another I am not sure about the name. The photo is not very clear but if you look closely, you can see the base starting to spread out and little pointing tips starting to form.

Jason Fox Fox Flame. Only had this guy for a month and the base is already covered. The color has started to show up too. When I first got it, it was mostly green/brown which made me wonder why it was called "Flame". Now seeing the colors I know.

Next is a strawberry shortcake. About three month old. Hasn't really grown yet but the color is nice. I heard this is a slow grower?
