You have very good rockscaping skills.

Thank you! I definitely can't take all the credit. A lot of it was desgined by Alex at Ocean Image Aquatics. I just did some tweaking here and there. I'm overall happy with how it came out! Eye balling the structure once I got the rocks home it may be a little to big, but it's going in the tank tonight.
So stay tuned!
As promised! I light scaped some of the corals on the new structure. Definitely not where they will be perminately. I'm also sorry that the blues are on so much, it's about night time in the tank.. I'll get better ones soon!
So I have a little cyano outbreak that hopefully I can get taken care of shortly!
I did a little rearranging of the corals. I removed one of the rocks and put it in my sum for now and I made a euphyllia rock. As well as other minor changes here and there.
I also picked up a gorgeous Lobo and Cynarina.
I treat for cyano a few times a year with chemiclean. Works well just follow directions. .
Yup! That's exactly what I'm going to get!
Follow instructions. In the case of Chemiclean 'just a tiny bit more' can mean disaster.
Also, the tank is under a month since setup. Cyano and diatomes are expected, if they didn't happen it means something is wrong. Might be worth just doing water changes and riding it out. Shame to start throwing chemicals in to combat something that is supposed to happen and will self resolve in a week or two. JMHO.
Well possibly! A lot of the water and sand (that's in the sump) is from my old tank. I'm trying to dirty up my water to get my nitrates up to 10-20.
@raccioppi83 Where did you find your nice lobo?
@diana a Ocean Image Aquatics! I'll get ya a picture later with more lights to really see how nice the colors are. I never am let down when I go to find a new piece.. Next month they actually allowed me to host the next meeting there for Feb!
But getting back on track, it has a nice pinkish purple flesh with yellow spots on it. I fell in love at first sight lol
@diana a the picture still doesn't do it justice
Oh that is really nice!
