Yes, it's really nice to have something to look at now, I also have 3 cardinals and a royal gramma. I was at 0 N03 and 0 P04 I had to add something. It did the trick LOL!. It's not crazy high nitrates and P04 are in the perfect range I feel. I think I will take your advice and just do a 10gal water change and call it good.

I just purchased an XR30Gen5 Pro to replace my red sea 90. It's a nice light but I don't think it's gonna cut it for all the high-end SPS I want in here. I feel it's more an LPS light. That's what I got from the BRS video on it.

Everything else seems to be OK, Cal is a little higher than I would like so that Waterchange might do good all around.

I have 0 phosphates and 3 nitrates, I have some algae in the tank and I have been dosing phosphates but can't seem to get it above 0. I'm assuming the algae is taking it up. I do have some corals and don't want them to starve so what would be the best plan of action? Keep dosing phosphate and try vibrant? I have shut down the skimmer. The algae rector is still running but it looks like the chaeto is dying off and turning white.

The waterbox im looking at is 47.2"×19.7"×21.7"..

I just hope when I do order it the stand isnt all messed up
Well if it's the black stand you're going with get yourself a tap for the threads on the feet. The coating is covered in the threads and doesn't allow the feet to screw in.

Yup its the black stand...

SO how the hell does it screw in? Seems like something so basic

Just wanted to upload a recent picture for the build thread. Not much growth just a lot of encrusting so far. My gold torch is the only thing that's not looking so good :( Pretty sure it's not going to make it and I have no clue why. It was pretty bad when I received it.

Do you think that live rock is more beneficial in sump than it is in the main display tank?
