    Thanks! :)
    There is almost no algae left except next to the top left pump. Just some cyano issues to sort out but that should right itself in December.

    Its easy to post pictures of the same tank frm start to 1 year later .... Wat goes on in that 1 year is another story, dead corals constantly being replaced,more corals added,

    I can have a tank for a yrs and a year later have completely new corals in,the key is a tank, that reached a year with same corals and fish it started off with... I mean ma, u can see on certain pics above,1st pics corals don't match 2nd and also sps growth over a year is huge,and if a year later ur sps still look same size,man oh man,somthing then not right :lol:

    Just my 2c

    We all have deaths in our tanks. A year later shows how your tank has changed or not
