Here’s my updated daily feeding
4 ml Red Sea AB+
@Reef Nutrition Arcti-Feast, Phyto-Feast, Oyster-Feast, and R.O.E.
My tank is also seeded with apex, tigger, and tisbe pods. I plan to replenish these 3 to 4 times a year

Full of life, looking great! My wife loves feather dusters. I better go find one.
You should definitely get some! Also, they are very resilient and you can definitely add it to yours now if you wanted

I started using AB+ also, but just one ml…I only have one coral. Today I target fed my coral some reefroids. It puffed up like a balloon even though the clown stole a bunch of it.

I only dose around 2-3 ml for my fully stocked tank. Reef roids is also a good supplement for coral feeding!

Maybe I should dial it back to 1 ml a couple times per week.
I would say once you are at like 10 corals then you should be fine doing 1 ml per day. Red Sea dosing numbers tend to be on the higher side it seems

You take great pics!
Thanks! I use my iPhone 13 Pro with the new Orphek lens kit for wide shots. For close ups I use my mirrorless DSLR camera. I’ve been trying to do better with framing and using depth for focusing on the foreground and blurring the background

Just purchased a new cabinet to go under my freshwater tank that will house all of my aquarium supplies. I'm currently looking at a 4 channel doser for my main additives (Red Sea A/B/C and Brightwell Aquatics ChaetoGro).

In addition, I'm exploring potentially automating my feeding. Currently I feed 5 different foods for my saltwater and one for my freshwater. That's 6 dosing channels :( I checked with Reef Nutrition and they cannot be combined in long term storage. Ultimately, the auto feeding would be best tackled if Hydros comes out with a multi channel doser

An update on some stuff. My birdsnest and stylophora died. That's the second frag of each. I'm not sure why these don't do well in my tank since my monti digis and pavona are fine. I also removed the rear rock work since it was causing too much dead spots. Some of my chaeto died, which I suspect is due to too much dosing of single elements in the chamber causing precipitation. Finally, dosed chemi-clean twice again to combat red cyano.
