  1. Thanks man. I've started a schedule to rotate biweekly and minding the amount for regular removal. We'll see how much I actually need to maintain the right levels of nutrients. I'd be surprised if I find that I don't need it at all.
  2. Sascha I missed your question about macro sorry. I only have chaeto in the sump, but there's a lot of it. I've started pulling some out. Started out with multiple macros from Aquadome, but the others died off and chaeto took over. The top is always neon green where it's exposed to the LED I've got down there, and who knows what's going on underneath there as I have a crappy prehistoric sump sitting in one of those grey rubbermaid tubs. Can't see sh*t. Relic of when I first set the tank up and had no idea which way was up. But it's one of those things that will be such a PITA to fix, that it's always a "next year" project lol. Not even sure how I got that rubbermaid in there; it'll be nearly impossible to get back out smh. I digress..
  3. 3x5"?? Lol hopefully we won't have any of that! Good luck with the mystery coral. Your corals grow like weeds so it shouldn't take long to find out.. If you want one of those nems back in the future just let me know. And please keep us posted on what you decide to do about your lights. I'm interested to hear which way you end up going..

  4. Gracias Sascha. The Tort is at least hulking out, and has retained its color, so I just need to be patient. The Bonsai is the slowest grower. It's been steadily encrusting, so that's good - I've read and Ty explained that they like to establish a strong base before beginning to branch out. I hope to get it to color back up, along with the green goblin and the purple poisonberry. Both of those have seen good growth, though, which seems inconsistent with losing color.. Hey I think I forgot to tell you yesterday that the rainbow BTA I got from you split a few weeks ago. The small one roamed uncomfortably close to some SPS, but has since moved back near the mother. You got rid of all 3 of yours right?
  5. Thanks Jimbo and Ty. This is exactly the guidance I need. PO4 target of .08 then, got it. I don't feed very heavily, have a monster skimmer, dose nopox and tend to let the macro algae grow unchecked. Will possibly add a morning round of reef energy A & B to start with. Thinking one variable at a time though, just in case [emoji15] Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  6. Ty, you run PO4 below. 08, or. 18? And thanks. It's hard to tell how I'm doing sometimes; nice to get some eyes on the progress. I appreciate the great frags I got from you as well! Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks Jimbo. I'll shoot for PO4 between .14 and .18 then. Maybe I'll do another round of pics once the nutrients increase to show impact on colors. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks Reefpuck. I'm sure others have had much better results. Hopefully these pics can be one possible frame of reference. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    I'll take it. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks Jim! I appreciate the great frags. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  11. Jimbo the pic on the right does have more light - two coral plus ATIs - but it is definitely pale. I'm hoping it's the lack of nutrients issue. [emoji15] Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks John! They're both budding nicely. Of course, I'm happy to separate a good sized frag for you. Let me know when you're ready. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Was considering picking up a couple of these . Why are you selling it, and how old is it? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. I have more stuff, but that's all the before & after photos I have. The date range is June 29th - Sept 1st. Why do I feel like I just posted a bunch of pics of myself in my underwear? [emoji1787] Feel free to leave feedback or not. I just appreciate this community for making me feel like my sickness is normal (or at least ok)! Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
