Amazing as always. You sir, have the Midas touch for SPS. How has your journey with the KH Director been? Still happy? No major connection, calibration, etc.?

thank you so much VJV :) I try my best :)

KH has been amazing... I just needed to change some pump heads(blue things that break), 1 pH Probe and a couple of calibration. These are all things I can live with to have 1 KH measure per day :)

Refuge evolution.

ATM I'm taking out a LOT of chaeto, that's around 20L bucket per month, the XR15 is doing an amazing job growing the algae, plus the whole return flow passing by the algae mass due to the Seadreams sump design is working 100%.

FLOW ;)

like I said before one of the objectives was to increase the flow all over the tank, solution was to add a couple of MP40's another one on the right glass and another one on the back glass, lowering the speed on all of them, I think I managed to have a flow all around the rocks and corals covering 100% of the tank. :D let's see the difference, my goal is to increase the flow and the growth, by also have a more uniform growth... let's see.

So here it is some picstures of the tank and the cabinet :D this time pictures were taken with a studio flash, giving a nice light "fill"... this photos were also taken by a friend of mine hence the different perspectives from my usual material :D
