Glad to hear it! So do you have long ramp ups and down or are you pretty much at 6 hours only?So I changed my lighting around to have 6 hours of light at 14k and now the sps is growing like crazy! Not sure if just the lighting change made the difference or if something else happened in the tank but this is the most growth I've seen in a long time
The only thing I really changed was lighting. I think I may have had a underlying problem some where else but I'm not certain. I was battling Dino's off and on for a little bit but at the time of slow growth I had not had Dino's in months. Adding the 14k lighting to my schedule seemed some how atleast "wake up" the corals and get them growing a very little.@Milldozer Reviving this thread to check in on progress. Are you still seeing strong growth? Do you mainly attribute it to the lighting? I have an extremely similar setup to you and I also have radions. I have my lighting set to SPS AB+, and have similar parameters to yours (my NO3 is ~5 and PO4 is ~.03-.08), but I have had nearly ZERO growth in my corals for about 6 months. It's actually quite amazing - the poly extension is fantastic, color is good, but growth is literally ZERO. Tank has been up for 2 years, but I started with 100% dry rock so about 6 months ago I switched it all out for live rock. I'm trying to figure out how to get my corals to actually grow.
