    It's been a while since the last update.
    So I had a bad outbreak of bryopsis in my frag tank and do a 14 days treatment with fruconazole. What I can tell is the medicine works, and it's reef safe. However I did have some casualties.
    During the 14 days of the treatment, my pH drop significantly (~7.8) and sure the nutrient rising plus no water change. The environmental change makes some creatures living in it become more aggressive. After years living peaceful together, those zoas decided to kill their neighbors.
    My pink lemonade colony losed the fight.

    So, this is the last pics of it. RIP baby.


    I took a risk and removed them...by hand.



    The blue bonsai also decided it doesn't want to be around the Pikachu any more (or may be the zoas's toxic juice make them irritate) . Luckily I am able to save the Pikachu colony just in time. It now sitting on my frag tank, color lost and polyps retract.




    I also about to get the calcium reactor running.
    Currently decreasing the doser rate from 135 mil each part to 100 mil each part with the calcium reactor's pH at 6.75~6.85.



    Did 20 gallons water change, add GAC after the treatment finish ( all bryopsis gone) yesterday and today everything blooming again!

    Some top down pic , so you have some idea how much of a space vs corals that I have to deal right now.





    Trimming my Strawberry shortcake to the root again. Man, this one grow soooo fast I can't keep up with the trimming.









    I decided to name this one Mr V's Biohazard since I bought it as RR biohazard and turn out it's not a rr biohazard.
    Super hairy and true yellow. (Frags available )



    My heart skips a beat or two every time I see this baby.

    Where in terms of lighting and flow are you keeping your WD? What's your lineage on it? Truly amazing piece

    I'm kind of surprised how tolerant acros can handle. everything still look good.




    My Vectra M1 also *** up. I notice a huge swinging in its power usage. Disassembled everything and see this. It's extremely hot, I think the inside motor was melted.



    The pump just over a year (warranty expired ). Hopefully me and Ecotech can work something out.
    Hey Mr. V, my L1 did the exact same thing. They warrantied it (overnighted me a new one). Did they send you a new one?

    Ps. your corals are gorgeous!

    As you can see in the topdown pic. It is on the top layer of my tank. All of my corals received extreme flow!

    Default 45 gallon Acros Tank

    Not the coolest, but definitely my proud piece. Kinda hard to find and harder to see it color up like this!
    Rr Pretty in Pink?


    I love the polyps!


    Coming back after fully trimmed last month.


    I got lazy and this guy completely shade out my rr biohazard. Half of the biohazard colony gone.
    A pic for you before I trim you to the base!


    Rr Blue Planet. I don't see this acro often.



    This definitely NOT the gaft bonsai! Growing back so slow since the last trim (to the base). But I like the shape, and the branches grow so thick, bushy, and...blue! Super blue.




    After sitting in my tank for 2 years, this start coloring up nicely. No named. I am not thinking about any name for this bad boy yet.




    This too no named. I have it more than 2 years. No grow!
    But when it grow, will be a bad-*** acro no doubt!


    Sexy coral Orange Passion



    Sunset Mili. Who said $15 frag can't stand out in the crowd ?!
    This mili is in front and middle of my tank. Eyes catcher!


    Strawberry shortcake. He grow in the middle of my op, joe rainbow and Bc battle juice. So not even a small chance to become a colony ! I trim it to the base every month!




    One of the hardest acro to color up to me! Vivid rainbow delight! Touch it and it brown!

    The base is still brown actually.


    Bc Therman rainbow. I recently tried to cut the whole colony down to save space for the rr Pink Floyd. But no luck at all. The colony is sooo thick. So he stays.





    Vivid fire garden. Ppl say it and the red planet are same acro. I never own a red planet, but compare to online pictures, I think this acro is more worth keeping than the red planet.


    Rr the Vinh



    Another no named.


    Wd under "not too blue" light:


    Now, the group shots:

    Default 45 gallon Acros Tank

    Sorry for no update on this tank and the 100 gallons systems. I am way too busy lately. With work, school, and a baby boy coming next January.
    I don't even have time enjoy the tank! But my system knows me well, it's doing good despite being neglected.
    Corals start touching each other and the branches become too thick to trim. It's almost like their base touching.

    Your tank is a joy to see. Such happy coral, phenomenal colors and lots of polyp extension. Keep sharing
