Nice tank Mr Scot, I really like your cave scaping. The equipments and other filtration have already been sufficient enough and so does lighting.
So, it has been running for more less 6 months, hasn't it? would you tell us about your water parameter?

Thank you! For some reason I just naturally go to that style of scaping. :)

I used to check my params frequently in the beginning, until the tank was "established". Recently I haven't measured. I will do that this weekend and post my results.

Most of the time I just pay really close attention to corals to see how they are responding, rather than focusing on testing. So I mostly do qualitative observation/evaluation instead of quantitative. Testing was important in the beginning in order to establish my routines and habits, but now that i have figured out what works, I don't really need to do frequent testing.

I hope that helps! :)

Very nice mr Scott, that's one beautiful tank.
I loved to see how you used razor led to grow coral, how do you find those fixture? Are they good?
Can they sustain the growth and coloration of your corals?

Bst regards,

I agree with your statement since the tank has matured and the system can maintain itself.
Perhaps if you have already had average doses need for each additive , it will make your tank condition steady.

So far I am happy with Razor. I made some adjustments since i got it, but i think it is great for coral growth and coloration.
