    FINALLY, I feel some confidence to showcase my tank to the professionals.

    Below are a couple of pics to date !!!!

    I HAVE A BIG 40x40x40 refuge at the bottom with ATS which I think really is helping.

    I only dose, ALK, CA and Mg + Amino Acids that's it !

    lighting 6 x 39W, 3 x White and 3 X Blue

    Conditions finally stable and All LS flourishing, I'm thinking of changing my lights for more growth ???

    Absolutely stunning. I think the pros will be asking you for advice;). I think if you drop the light unit to within 5cm of the water level, you increase the light by a good 20%.

    very cool setup! looks totally awesome, no need to hide it

    you should grow the xenia in your sump, they are perfect water filters, most USA reefers grow it in there fuges and sumps
