Yeah I've good growth going on. Some stuff faster that others.

Check this comparison pic on the plating montipora.

Loads of basing out. I attribute that to the flatworms stop and coral booster combo.

July to now.

I'll try to grab some other growth pics tomorrow. The tank is starting to fill out nicely though.

Love Marine are getting in some Acros in a few weeks, looking forward to that.  :grin:

Yeah I'm already chasing Alk. I'm sure that will continue.

Looking into Hannah checkers to save a bit of time.
Any opinions?

That's a good amount.
I've heard mixed reviews but on the whole good ones, going to give them a go at some point.

Hey guys,

I did a little video as it gives a better feel of the tank than my rubbish photography skills.

Feel free to check it out.

Thanks:

I like to minimalistic scape. Nice and open for good flow, and give a good 3D effect, making you want to look in holes and around rocks to see everything.

Hey @Asco1104 I popped in last weekend, the tanks were in, but no fish. Should be up and running this weekend I hope. He has an acro shipment on the way which should relieve me of all my spending money...

Thanks @HK_Fuey I lucked out with the scape. The reef bones really let you do things that you just can't achieve with standard live rock.
The lack of the unknown nasties is nice too.

Ah, you should still pop in, even if just for a browse and a chat.

Thanks:
