My system is thriving now if I can say that myself. The increase in NO3 has helped a lot, its around 10ppm now and holding. Getting great color on my acros and some growth too.

Just got the PMK for my APEX and since adding the T5s then taking some readings I've dialed down the Kessils to just 50% to give me roughly 200+ PAR in every spot of the display. My very top acros are getting 400 which matches about what they received befor adding the T5s. Solidly impressed that two 60" bulbs have easily added 100+ PAR to every square inch of the tank.

I am hoping these higher number will result in better coloration of my WWC and other captive grown acros.

I have finally reached a point where I can share some pictures of my reef. Aiptasia, gone. Bryopsis, gone.

Thanks.

Now that I feel like things are dialed in and stable I feel ready to start stocking the display with coral.

Still playing around with the powerheads to find the perfect flow programs/patterns. It's work, but fun work.



With an MP60+ 2 each Tunze 6105s I'm pushing over 80x my display volume at max output. I've put the wide flow nozzles on the Tunzes and that works out great! With the narrow ones I was getting really great flow velocity but literally pushing water out of the tank lol. All three are controlled via APEX so I've got some pretty nice programs that have really brought out the acro's PE. Not even a slight dead spot to speak of and I've got really cool push button feed modes. Each programed to do a different type of feed. I've got a program for spot feeding corals, another for broadcast feeding, then one for fish pellets, and the last is for frozen stuff.
