    Rather use a reactor with Orca biocubes or just plain water changes.

    Looking very awesome! Coming along nicely! :thumbup:

    may I suggest taking those Star Polyps off the main rockwork though...as pretty as they can look, they also tend to grow over everything in their path...not stopping even for other corals. So best to keep them on their own little island away from the rest of your corals and rockwork if you don't want to spend your days in the future scraping GSP off your rocks.
    What also looks nice that some guys do is place it against the back glass and let it grow up and cover the back of the tank. :)

    Btw...we met sort of this week at Finny...I was suggesting the Seachem carbon to you over the cheap stuff. ;)
