    Hi everyone . Bit of background , I had a 150l , upgraded to 550l and downgraded to a 180l cube .
    2500lph return , RW4 powerhead , zt6500 zetlight , sump runs reactor for carbon, 10w floodlight for macro , curve 5 skimmer .

    Cube almost 2 months old

    Its a mixed coral tank , I enjoy zoas and nennies but started with sps as well .
    Fish -
    Male Mandarin
    Female Manderin
    Yellow tang
    Royal gramma
    Flame goby (fire jumped)
    Percula clown
    Yellow corris wrasse
    2 cleaner shrimps ( they ate the peppermint )
    sand sifting star
    red star (sorry I lost the name)

    I did start dosing reef fuel and got results in zoas growth and colour but could not go on with the results as I upgraded to ZT6500 so this will mix things up . Here is 2 pics from the zoas

    Thanks everyone , @Haffy im dosing abc+ daily , then daily reef energy a&b , reef colors c & d , nopox 0.3ml once in a while but im waiting for energy a and b , as soon as i dose nopox i start seeing cyano , but dosing nopox with reef energy i dont see this , very strange but been working for me for a few months now . Every 2nd week redsea sps salt 50l wc but keeping levels as stable as posible. @Prodigy the tank is around 55cm cube , in total 180l with sump . I also added t5 dual and this makes coraline grow much beter and the zoas approves
