Awesome. Do you feed your corals? Or follow a particular system like AF or Zeovit?

Aminos and marine/reef snow, daily. No system in particular. For bacteria, I change out the FM Bacto Reef Balls every two weeks. And when I first setup the tank, I seeded it with BioDigest and maintain that as well, along with Bioptim.

The pipe organ, a good space filler in between the rocks and corals.

Short polyp gonios, somewhat more delicate than the long polyp ones.

You're most welcome, Muw. And thank you for the kind words!

If you're referring to the rose milli at the top left, right above it is an RBM frag. After struggling for survival the first few months, it's starting to show some progress, with polyps extending a little and coralites turning blue .

As to the colours, I've always liked to look of the corals under T5s. Going with a full LED setup for the 50g, my aim was to achieve the same visual. I played around with the LED light settings/spectrum and program to achieve a similar effect.

Light is but one factor. Maintaining optimal water parameters coupled with mixed turbulent flow contribute to bringing out the best in corals.

Plus a low nutrient environment means "less brown", allowing the colour pigmentation in corals to standout.

Fairly slow grower, plus they don't bother other corals.

In the beginning.... a modular reefscape, hasn't changed much since, except for a few additional branches and small pieces of rock.

Today's theme is YELLOW. The colour provides a nice contrast in a reef. Here's a purple tip yellow tenuis and a yellow pocillopora.

Skunk clown pair seeking refuge in the cespitularia after lights out. Please excuse the fuzzy pic taken under low light conditions with a phone cam last night.
