    Just to keep you at bay.

    Amazing growth is just over a month. Using sugar fine aragonite and seeing amazing results.

    Excited too see this, only read thread now. What an amazing tank/ house add-on.
    If I had one, I would be tempted to snorkel/ float on the top every day.

    I have been working on the tank quite a bit and therefore still merky. Also have started to break down the current tank and move across extra live rock.

    I will be posting everything shortly. The sump room has also come a long way and love the new easy to access sump.
