    Hi all,

    Started my tank in February and thought it’s time for an update.

    Display Tank: 100Lx55Wx60H = 285 l
    Sump: 100Lx35Wx45H = 100 l
    Sump-RO: 100Lx10Wx45H = 40 l

    Pictures will tell the rest

    Nice going Wouter.
    How often do you have to clean the back glass? I wonder if your cleaning of the back glass, is the reason why your plating coraline looks so good.

    Only once in the two weeks. I hear a lot of people that have to do it almost every day. But in my case it's not growing there at all. After 2 weeks there is just a light green layer of algae at the back window. No coraline.

    I'm running the NP since may. Until now i'm happy. I don't really know the difference because I only started the tank in February.

    The only thing at this moment is that my yellow tang has red markings on his body. I read somewhere that that is maybe because of the NP.

    So at this moment i'm doing a 50 L water change every week (only did that twice now), normally I do 25 change every week.

    Wow. Amazing growth of the corraline. If ever you wanna part with the plating type,please keep me in mind.
    Thanks Chika for your mention

    Hi, no i'm not really dosing anything. Once in a while I throw in some 8.4 but that is the only thing.
    And I add some vitamins to the food. But that is all.

    lovely healthy looking system, well done so far:)

    i also like the obvious care and detail you have applied to placement of your corals, its a very well thought out tank.
