    Thanks sammy. Looks awesome!

    Whats your opinion on the halimedia?
    I read that it consumes alot of calcium? Whats your opinion on this?
    My seahorse tank is connected to my main SPS display tank

    @Parraman, yes it does consume calcium, I cannot say how much because I not ran a calcium consumption test with or without it. I just maintain my Ca as per normal with auto dosing.

    Maybe you can get some and monitor your Ca after you introduce it, I'm sure it would be negligible.

    Your call at the end of the day.
