Thanks!

This was one of the last FTS of the reef... mainly SPS and LPS.

Whew, been a while since I updated!

Haven't done much since this whole Covid thing started back in March... still working from home but it feels like I have less and less time to mess with the tank!
Only thing I've done is added a few plants and a few gourmai's.

Also got my doser fully running.
Phosphate, Nitrate, Micros and Easy Carbo.



quick iPhone pics from a few weeks ago...





And a couple vids from yesterday after some maintenance.

Beautiful display and meticulous setup.You and I must think alike! I have set up an auto water change and reverse osmosis water tanks for similar set up as you. I have yet to set up a display tank but have a system running automated for small daily water changes, 3 gallons per day on a test bed 40B that is growing plants pretty well. I’m also autodosing all in one fertilizer (Thrive) once per day before lights on also, along with some extra KH2PO4 every other day because when I measured P it was basically zero. Extra iron once a week (as a guess) also for the reds.

While not doing 10% daily water changes, I’m trying to use PPS Pro levels of dosing so I was thinking as much water change may not be needed. This could be easily changed however. Also the water removed goes to various potted plants and into the garden as it is dumped into a bucket in a utility sink for this purpose.

Anyway, if you have any more insight into daily water changes and how you are going about dosing I sure would appreciate it!

Plastic, yuck!

Here's what the tank looks like today... almost one year since it got wet.
I've basically ignored the tank lately. That right side has gone nuts.







And these may be the last pics i take!
I'm getting a bit bored of this scape so I'm thinking of tearing it all out and starting over with something completely different.

Stay tuned... October may be interesting.

I agree, I enjoy this scape, looks so natural and the fish are bursting with color, showing their level of happy. Either way, sounds like we are in for a treat..

your "ignored" tank still looks amazing!

Yes, I feel you on the need to change things up. it keeps things interesting!

Excited to see what comes out! you have a great foundation with the automatic water changer/ doser/ lights so all it needs is to change up the plants and maybe livestock?

Correct, all equipment can stay. And since I'll be emptying the tank I'll probably go ahead and add a UV.
With the livestock I'm considering, probably going to lean towards a more minimalist scape. More hardscape focused with less focus on plants.
