  1. I've read about the aquabiomics but have not tried it. It's an interesting concept but I'm not sure what I would do with the results. Say it comes back lacking biodiversity, then what?

    I wonder if you had an ammonia spike? I see you have a hang on filter, but how did you get a bacteria population established? I keep sponges in my HOB filter and seed them with Dr. Tim's. I also keep some marine pure balls in the QT to allow bacteria to grow. The other thing that helps a lot in a QT is to run an airstone
  4. I have both a Reef Savvy and a Planet Aquarium. Both are high quality. The Reef Savvy wait time is ridiculous, I waited 18 months. The planet wait time was much better. They can do a matching steel stand which then gives a really good warranty to the combo I believe. My only issue with planet is their overflow hardware is not great. So I put a Reef Savvy ghost overflow on my planet tank. It's an awesome combo! I really like my elite aquatics sumps too: https://www.facebook.com/Elite-Aquatics-241732935839455/
  5. I had a great experience buying a Planet Aquarium from Gary at Aquadome. Planet has some ready made configurations that can save you money versus a custom: https://www.planetaquariums.com/crystaline

    That's amazing, I had no idea they could be kept that long!
  7. I see, the acans and the blastos get no love. Apparently you are a stick head (like me)!

    Where to buy coral

    Depends what kind of coral you want. I only care about acros and I think the best deals are by avoiding the hyped-up blue saturated sites. It's hard to go wrong with Battlecorals, especially if you are not too specific on what you want. You can get what Adam calls a Battlebox for s reasonable price and he loads it up with whatever he likes. I've done it and it was large healthy pieces. Another good value site is Boomcorals. I have no good suggestions on non-acros tho ... Locally, you know the players
  9. Looks good Ian. I can't really see that much difference between your initial layout and the final
  10. Awesome update. Your pictures came out really well I think
