My setting on Ecosmartlive for the radions. Generally AB+ setting with personal tweaks in ramping. Running at 90%. New radion users please be careful and acclimate ur corals during switch of new lights or starting of new corals. Incase of bleaching the corals which my red stag was bleached initially and i moved in down at a lower area with lower intensity.

Not the neatest sump with the vines hanging as the backdrop. Else the goal was a simple oldschool sump for ease of maintenance. Therefore just a skimmer, ats and medias emoji2.png

Yes its on the high side. I have some sps that requires high lighting to bring out certain colors thats why. Thats why I don’t recommend people to run at 90% unless you’ve tested before know what yr goals are, else bleaching corals might be the result.

Oh yes. Its for some broken and loose frags. Else it will flow all round the tank and pass away haha.

Thanks for the prompt reply bro.

Just want to understand if you put a par light there will it promote algae growth?

Also I did realized you don't run a phosphate / carbon reactor you rely on that ATS to control the phosphate level?

 

Care to elaborate further what in the 1st , 2nd and 3rd compartment of your sump?

Is this with the RMS diffusers or without?

Currently my nutrients is on the low end and controlling so it doesn’t seem to promote algae growth from wad i see now as its shining directly into a basket.
I rely on skimmer and ats to control nutrients level with my load of medias!
Extreme left is a solitary compartment inbuilt with sump for ATO water.
Following by,
1st compartment is my flow back and medias
2nd is skimmer , ats and medias
3rd is return pump, medias.

Hammer coral Euphyllia ancora LPS
The Hammer coral gets its name from the hammer or anchor shape of its tentacles. They do well in medium flow and medium light. You want enough flow to keep them dancing in the current and keep them clean

Hi bro thanks for the questions.
I’ve gotten the yellow hammer fortunately from a decom reefer.

For the ATS i got from a local seller who brought in from china in 2019 . Can check taobao or carousel if still have ba this model as it does not have a name apparently just a unique logo.
I got this ats due to its led being hunged outside of the sump with zero contact with water therefore making it very safe compared to all other ATS I’ve seen.
My ats is on 12hours a day alternate from my DT light schedules.
Medias seen in sump are Bacteria King and Marine pure

My beloved goldy that was killed by my emerald crab last year.
Caught the emerald crab after lights off pinching on the torch, seems to be eating and slowly the torch died head by head.

Had no choice but to call in an execution for the crab.
