Holy crap keeping it simple is right! I was very surprised at the no dosing. Not even calcium? Very impressive !!

Do you have SPS LPS zoas AND softies(leathers etc) in there?!?

This was 'purplina'. RIP she jumped last week. most evil fu$@#%g fish in the world. It was a terrorist but we had a love hate relationship and I miss her.
anyone else become emotionally attached to a fish or should I seek professional help?

I live close to March and this is a made up rock that he did and I was lucky enough to purchase off of him. He did an outstanding job on it. I had a few corals come off on the drive home but all in all it is an awesome piece of coral art!
I then commissioned him to do a multi-coloured ric. rock for me - again outstanding.

Both will be going in my 34gl. nano (currently at a relatives until my tank is cycled).
Enjoy!

Can I ask where you got your Par38s/what colour blend they are? I looked through the thread but if I missed it my apologies. I'm thinking I might want to add a PAR38 bulb to supplement my Kessil when I move from a 4 gallon to an 8 gallon tank.

This tank is beyond stunning BTW. Somehow I managed to have never been to your site before... You may be parting me with a good chunk of my money shortly, and you can credit this thread with the reason!

Great fts. Love the lights, I see you have 3 over your tank, do you think one par 38 would be enough for a 2.5g ibox tank?
