    Ya I follow your thinking, but could do like a thin singular central pillar or maybe two thin pillars enough that you could get some hight for the sps pieces to stay away from the stinging lps.

    Thanks for the complements...my tanks slowly taking shape. :)

    I’m also considering just filling it with rose bubble tips and letting them split in there, what do you think?

    Awesome! I tried to get Zayn to sell me his colony when I was there in November but he would not budge...managed to persuade him to sell me his Nuclear Paly colony at the time though :D

    The plan is to keep on doing weekly water changes & glass cleaning when I’m home on weekends and keep my hands out of the tank!

    I tend to keep it between 7 and 9, dripping about 1/16 of a teaspoon of baking soda in RO water.

    The little tub of baking soda is almost used up so will probably give the Aqua Forest stuff a try next. Currently, I rely mainly on water changes to keep parameters stable but as stuff grows out I may need to start looking into dosing more frequently. I think a dosing pump would ruin the aesthetic of this setup so may look into getting a 'pump dispenser' type bottle to dose alk and calcium daily in a few months.
