    Hi All, my tank has now been running for more then a year, all liverock and most livestock were moved over from my previous tank which was about 8 months old.
    the tank is 1800x600x400 high lighting is via 2x250 watt 20,000K metal halides.

    It sound good, but is your flow pumps nennie safe? Can you post the actuall accurate water parameters?
    What other livestock you got in the tank?

    other livestock, are 2 clowns, a sailfin tang, a yellow tang, a foxface, 2 cleaner shrimps a couple of blue leg hemmits and a lawnmower bleeny. corals pin cusion, star polps, hammer coral, brain coral, bubble coral, some green shrooms, and some zoas. lost my SPS and clam due to power failure :(. water parameters
    nitrate - 0, po4 - 0.05, ca 420-440, kh bit low 6, temp at 27

    pump side my biggest concern is my polario, but i will cover the intakes, and i will reduce the number of pumps i have now as i wont be keeping SPS

    oh yes and salinity 1.026 :)

    If you and your tank are stable I don't see why not. I think post a full tank pic so the Gurus can have a look see. They will ask for all your water stats.

    Just remember the secret is to buy an Anemone that is Healthy. Up here on the reef 9 out of 10 Anemone for sale are half dead.

    thanks man, will have to take a pic, the only parameter that changes a bit is the KH need to get some buffer, currently use epsom salts

    dKH = Bicarb not epson salt. dKH is a measurement for Alkalinity and you use bicarb to raise it. And that is normal for the alkalinity to change.

    The only concerns I have is the alkalinity and the pumps. Get those taken care of and you are good to go!
