    Hi, do you have acros growing against each other? Different colours but same species or different acros against other, or do you trim them before they touch each other

    @Ballieregalangel You can develop the method yourself. All the chemicals are available here, with some chemistry knowledge you can work out the concentrations to make your own mixtures and you have to have all the test kits to test for all the elements you are going to dose. Glenn has a dosing calculator available that you can download.
    Glenn does not do any water changes (he can give you more specifics on that) so you can get the same results with regular water changes, because water changes replenishes the lost trace elements that he is dosing when not doing any or regular water changes
    If you want to start using this method where you dose specific elements individually, do you home work very thoroughly.

    I am a lazy reefer, who set the aquarium to run on autopilot.
    In let nature have it's own way if it's about growth.

    True!
    I showed that it's possible, but won't support nor encouraged commercial exploitation . These have to developed by the produccent themselves

    I must say growth is just fine the corals doubled from large frags to full colonies competing for space in 5 months time.
    The colors of the branching corals look washed out from the sideview.
    That's one thing i dislike from this full led setup.3cd71f7f2b9d8e56ab14de477744a845.jpg

    Picture below taken with darker settings to give the corals more color dept

    Picture below look washed out, compared to previous posting.

    The top view looks a lot better

    This is how led prove to be better looking.
    No comparison can be made with T5 because pictures taken from abobe with T5 will always have problem with reflection of the bulbs.
