    I should have taken a close up of the black cyano like algae that is growing on the sand and some of the rocks. Never seen anything like it in my 16 years of reefing.

    That 8 bulb ati fixture is no joke. Especially depending on the bulb combo you chose. I have the same unit over a 22inch high tank (it’s hanging 12 inches above the water line) and grows sps at the bottom of the tank. Doesn’t matter what kind.

    Either way, great looking tank! Love the scape you went with.

    I'm thinking the 6x54w would have been better. Or, that new hybrid I could have put my Kessil A360Ws in.

    No going back now. $$$$$$

    I wish things would grow and fill in quicker.

    That's what happens when you decide to do an SPS tank with only frags. Without the acans, this tank would look empty.

    Just ordered one of these for the Avast Porthole. At $7.99 + shipping it had to be done.

    That looks like it would be a cool thing to have/use. I need to think about that one for sure :)

    No just the iPhone X and an orange film filter.
