Awesome! I like your 2 big clusters of golden cloves! Can share your secrets of success:
1) which brand of seasalt?
2) do you feed your lps? If yes, which coral food?
3) do you dose any supplements?
4) how often you do water change?
5) what is your lighting routine?
6) how do you handle no3 and po4 export if any?
7) any others...

Thanks in advance!!!

What a beauty! You clearly have the golden touch. Well done. What do you attribute your success to?

Thanks! No golden touch here, i've had my fair share of crashes, algae outbreak and all. Just need determination to keep going when faced with all this setbacks. Cheers bro.

Hi bro, it's looking real good. Nice to know it's in good hands :)

It's time to trim my green finger leather. Let me know if you are interested. Haha

just curious how do you get those green star polyp to grow on the wall?

They are actually on Tonga rocks which are placed behind the tank. The GSP have grown well and somehow some have managed to attach itself to the wall.

GSP on tonga rocks looks nice as it has the planted tank effect :) wondering what a tank full of GSP would look like.....

For Point number 6 Could you show me a pic of you Chaeto within the sump and how you run Orca Nitraguard? Via Reactor?

Hi bro, my phoswas and nitraguard are just placed in small bags and dumped into a small portion of the sump. My sump is real small so there isn't any place for reactors.

The chaeto is also placed in a partitioned portion of my sump 20200122_100147.jpeg
