Highdy Ho salt freaks. Some Saturday coral pics. Moved a couple of pieces around I didnt think were happy and @pelphrey demanded pics so you all win! Still a little ticked but whatever

Milli’s happy, encrusting nicely especially the ASD Rainbow which has only been with me a couple months

Brought the two in the right into slightly lower light. @RichtheReefer21 piece all the way to right finally glued. Forget what the blue piece is called. A Tort maybe? Growing slowly but coloring wasn't great where it was.

Pink lemonade and Milli on top right moved to more light. Lemonade was ok where it was but we gave it a more prominent placement for when it grows out. The milli I believed was about dead when Rich visited. Its now had good PE the last few weeks and we’re trying to color it back up. Cant remember what it even looked like so it'll be a surprise whatever it does

Oh, we also been doing some reading on bacteria. Or lack there of in dry rock tanks. While we’re doing pretty well for a relatively young tank (14ish months now) I feel it could be farther along. So we ordered another Brightwell NO3 brick and some Zeovit bacterial additives. No we’re not going Zeo but Ive read some good stuff regarding their bacterial supplements so giving it a go.

Thanks brother, Still learning the sticks but making progress!
How’s your build coming along? Dont think Ive seen an update in a bit. Happy 2020!
its getting there i do have to do an update. i have been more getting the hardware side nailed down. This weekend i am finishing my Mixing station/water change apparatus. I built a cabinet across from the tank so all i have to do is turn around and hang the hose on the tank to do a water change. all my corals are doing good except my euphyillia . i lost a 250.00 torch. not sure why. i just ordered a triton kit to have my water tested. Apex just died so now i have to pull everything out to send it back. Just the usual HAHA

Mixing station sounds nice, bummer on the rest.... Neptune will square you away just another headache to deal with. Good Luck!

Seriously amazing what a few months can do. None of that color was there when I visited, and some pieces as u mentioned, like the mille, were struggling. I cant believe the progress and recovery since then. They look fat and broad too. The blue one is likely a tort I agree. Those shapes on the corralites are pretty unique like torts tend to be.

Beautiful man. And great shot of the right side with all the fish too. Those frags cant grow fast enough, you're gonna have a forest man!!

Thx guys! I’ve finally gotten Mag to start falling back from 1490/1500 by raising Alk to 8.7ish. Im hopful that as it falls I begin to see some faster growth rates. While I dont know one way or another if that makes a big difference its the only thing sort of out of line.
Nitrates: 10
P4: .1
