Wow my journal is still on page one of this sub-forum without a new post in months. Wow wow lol.

Figured I'd throw an fts in here so I have something to compare to down the road. My algae battles with this tank were soul-crushing but things are much better these days. I can tell I'm finally getting to that point where everything's sorta deciding it can start growing. The coral figures maybe you've earned some satisfaction. Most frags are still teeny but it's great to see the growth starting to pickup. I still don't have much in the way of SPS... going to see how my easy pieces do for a while longer before going much deeper down that rabbit hole.

Currently running 8 rows of T5 with just a strip of DIY adhesive-backed LEDs down the middle for a bit of day and evening light. I plan to add something with a strong blue pop in the future. Maybe the Reef Brite Lumilite etc.

Thanks! The leopard died about a month ago sadly. I think it was about 7 years old. My naso also just up and stopped eating shortly after. Went from pig to nothing overnight and a day later was gone. Very strange and everyone else is doing great.

I did a re-start back in July 2019 so I hear ya about new tank issues. Still going through stages right now.

Real shame to hear about your fish losses. I also had a couple unexplained ones last fall - both long-term resident wrasses. I'm no longer adding garlic power to their frozen foods. No other ideas about what happened as they were sudden losses as yours were.
