    So are you saying you target that range for all 3? Very confused now.

    Also, why did you not mention iodine dosing in your write up for Mike palettas "params of tank masters" if you use it on all your systems?

    For actinic shots we turn all the colors to zero including the UV besides the blue which stay 100%.

    I picked up close to 20 frags on your anniversary sale! (thanks for that!)

    You mention in this thread you dose amino acids. What brand do you dose and how often? ...if I may ask :)

    I'm confused, did you guys switch this tank over to G4 pros or are you still running the Radium/ATI T5/Reefbrite combo?

    We switched over to 12 G4's with 6 Actinic T5's in Jan 2017.

    Our 10th Anniversary Sale is in full swing right now, so I thought it would be appropriate to update our 900 gallon thread with some fire for all those that can't make it!

    The growth from those Radions is impressive. How does it compare to the Kessils (remembering maybe you have kessils over another tank?) or just too hard to say?

    Most of the tanks do, but our 500 Gallon peaks at 65% and our 900 Gallon peaks at 70%. There are times when we'll lower/raise it depending on how the corals look.

    We do have a kessils on our nano system by our check out counter and we have been happy with the results from using it as well.
