Dead rock sunned and epoxy... placed in dt to start the cycling process. My initial scaping...

Bro, you might want to lower your ATI to 4-7" above water surface for faster sps colouring Cheers, James

Another 3 corals shot... Color improving day by day. Initially browned out or white...

Very nice scaping bro! I guess it's equally important to constantly trim the sps once they start growing before the scaping loses it's shape. That was my mistake of letting the sps growth run wild and all the problems started coming like lack of flow, detritus build up etc.

Thanks bro and you hit spot on. Yup kind of neglected trimming of the sps. Especially for those that encrust the base aggressively.

Do you have any reccomendation on how to trim the encrusted base? Right now i have one colony that spread its base very quickly. Will appreciate any tips

Haha. Don't have tips for that leh as I also don't trim my corals. But can be nice also when they form very dense jungles.

Haha, problem is the base is encrusting on its surrounding slower colony. They are taking over other colony skeleton. Looks nice but afraid will eventually end up with one sps species only. Lol
