    The tank has been running 3 years. it is around the 2,500lt mark with the sump running GFO, Calcium, NP Pellets. During the move the sump cracked on the base so we had to bypass the first 2 chambers while we prep to replace. Once replaced the rollermat will be installed and running again. There are 8 G3 Pro's and 4 G3 lighting the system. Phosphorus test results are between 2ppb and 15ppb. We have a small cyno out breakout after the move, but was to be expected. Using peroxide to settle it. Here are some pics of the colonies. Lighting was on SPS+ program and the tank did a small cycle so please excuse the diatom bloom. Photo's taken underwater with a cannon camera no filter blind shot.

    Been dosing Polyplab colours now for just short of a week so the colours have changed substantially. Will take more pics in a couple days time.
