@ros3to and anyone else culturing phyto, I just want to show you maximum density for phyto. I typically cut my cultures on Mondays (7 day cycle), but I left for a double header business trip on Monday. So since I knew it would be over time to harvest, I added a little more salt water (very watered down to account for some evaporation as well), added 5 more mL of phyto food, and left it for longer than I would typically.

I'm always afraid of phyto reaching past maximum density and crashing, but you can get it very dense. This is a picture of a bottle of Iso I bottled the week prior and how dense the Iso I l'm pouring off right now looks like.

I’m thinking of switching over to a galaxy phone or maybe get the iPhone 15 pro. I just can’t get good focus unless I can get close enough for a macro lens.
If you’re used to iPhone you’ll probably not like all the other aspects of the galaxy. I got a 15pro recently, still need to try the macro lens and I need to get a bigger orange filter.

The pro mode is the jam. Its funny because the guilty pleasure is the only coral I have that looks fake with pics.

Where is yours placed? Mine is alive since the November sale when I bought it, but zero growth. I have it in a higher flow area of frag rack. Should I put it on the rocks at slightly lower par and flow?

The other snail for a grower for me has been the SBB Space Ghost. Grows at a snails pace.

Mine is nestled in the middle of all my big guys. I keep them trimmed back so it gets good light. about 400 PAR. Flow in the area is a bit restricted with all the big colonies around it.

Anyone watch Rebel Moon on Netflix? I liked it. Entertaining enough to check out and enjoy, but man is it getting raked over the coals by critics.

I watched the first one when it came out...its alright. Want to see the R version before I see the 2nd one. It's by no means a great movie but was worth the watch

Ive trained three good friends, to take care of it when I’m gone. They tag team the feeding and Mx. I can monitor the system with Apex and guide them if anything breaks and needs attention. So far so good.
