I changed my bulbs in my ati and added a TLF media reactor. I also picked up some coral and moved rock work around a bit. i also drilled some holes in the rock to place the frags in. Since all the corals are small I will be dosing by hand till i purchase a dosing pump. Jason from Coral Collectors had a live sale and i picked up pink floyd ,asd rainbow milli, jagged blue, pink frogger milli, neon nights acro and he threw in a piece of purple rain and saphire acro for free. I never leave disappointed from his place.

I have been dosing by hand and things are looking good. I’m going to be in the market for a doser this week because schools starting soon. All corals are growing and I’m thinking of adding Red Sea colors and acropower to my regiment. I’ve been adding fish because I keep getting zero NO3 and PO4. Chaetos been growing like crazy 0ACB16CD-E1F2-470D-AA6D-F290004CB173.jpeg 8BDE90F9-8A4B-4B07-B663-F9E165C662ED.jpeg ADA7AC1D-5BE0-4409-9780-3E7BCCE8EAFD.jpeg 8FB87477-A801-4651-91A8-4ADDB4A50783.jpeg 83605D05-7AB7-405F-88C4-155EE20CCF3C.jpeg B044DAA6-606B-43DD-A974-D4EAE007FBF5.jpeg C239A9CC-6CC7-4B5F-AFC5-5CDFDB628C66.jpeg B044DAA6-606B-43DD-A974-D4EAE007FBF5.jpeg A141BA15-62A3-47B1-8F6B-C7043A679895.jpeg 296DE5EE-CA0D-408E-A473-73E1C413262A.jpeg .

Nice, just keep in mind not to put too much frags as they will grow and war against each other. At some point, I had almost 30 species in my 75 gallon

Thanks for the advice. How far about do you usually keep corals away from each other. I have them about 3-4 inches away from each other.

I would suggest 6” space from each frag, attached is my old reef before I took it down in February due to re-flooring project. Now I haven’t go back to sps yet due to lack of time. I was dosing about 160 mL per day of Alk and Ca plus ATO with kalkwasser solution. My pumps need cleaning very often due to high Ca

I'm only dosing a few ml a day so far. Definetly getting a dosing pump soon.

Quick update I got a dosing pump and picked up some corals from Coral Collectors. I also got some Emerald crabs to help out with some bubble algae that’s been kicking my butt. He had some home made fish food that I’m going to try. I also think I’m going to try Red Sea colors soon. Jason adds similar elements but I think Red Sea makes it simple but hopefully going by directions will work. The next thing I need is something to help me keep sand bed clean.
