Hey there, I've had salt water tanks for about 5 months now. Started with a 60, that leaked, then switched to a 55, and just upgraded about 4 weeks ago to a 110 gallon. I have a Sump and going to hopefully add a protein skimmer by Christmas, fingers crossed. I have about 29 frags(all LPS and softies). On this journey I have lost about 3 frags. Absolutely, love my Duncan coral. It's doing phenomenal, and in the process of producing more heads, will have 9 heads total soon! Corals are really my favorite for aquariums. I have about 45lbs of live rock plus a ceramic skull and a live helicopter(so sick).
In this new tank I havent started dosing just yet, but I have in the past in my old tank. I use 2 of the X1 pumps using reef fusion 1&2. Once I do a water change in this one this weekend I will be starting to dose. We shall see how that goes.

Also, I will update here with pictures of my tanks before to show the progress of the corals and upgrades, as well as sharing why. :) hopefully going to start a YouTube eventually. Working on it. Anyway, that's all for now!

Nice start! Love growing out frags.. like the skull haha! What kind of lights are you running?
Thank you! Got a big love for skulls had to get one in there! Can't wait for the corals to encrust actually onto it! and oh man, the technical stuff I still have a hard time with. Lol. But, it's a Fluval Sea 336 LED, 59w, 2550lm, 25,000k.

I am using the same light on my 75 gallon. Will you please share your light settings and schedule??
I took a screen shot of how I have my settings. I get home about 6pm everyday. So I like the light on when I'm home the most.

Thank you!

I'm thinking I might be running my lights to long now.... It's crazy you are getting that much growth on your Duncan with 4 hours of light

Got a midas blenny, named him rubble after the paw patrol character who likes rocks and is Yellow for my kids.

And an awesome alien egg zoa added to the building zoa garden I'm creating on the helicopter :)

Let me know what ya guys think!
