Keep up with whatever you're doing and you're on your way to a TOTM

Maybe it's all the fodder/death feeding the corals

I'm gonna chalk up your success to MHs, and a lack of number-chasing
lol I think much of my troubles with this tank was listening to popular practices and thinking maybe I was just too stuck in my ways. I tried the dry rock thing, and the QT thing, and nothing worked out well.
I've reverted back to my reckless ways and so far, things are turning around. Just did a water change and hung out looking down on the corals, and was really happy with the color, PE and growth.
I need to get PO4 back in line, but once there, hopefully everything sprouts up!

Ok, right, I have a tank journal. Hmm, updates.

As most know, currently wrestling with a pair of Moorish Idols. Added a baby Majestic to QT, wouldn't eat and lost it. I've also added 5 Talbot's Damsels, really neat little fish with lots of color. I'll try to kill them one day, but not today.
Added a UV unit today, was given it and figured why not. Playing with the Tunze scraper magnet thingy lots lately, cool little toy.
Things are growing, nutrients are dropping, tank life returning to what it once was. Overall pretty happy.
I can't get Kien to come to my house for pics, so no fancy macros, just the same old FTS, a little older.

Ya, really happy with the color, very vibrant and solid, just the way they used to be
The cleaners have been a pair for about 2 years, and so far haven't attempted jumping, so I expect them to be around a while. Now that I just typed that, going to go check the floor. BRB

Looking very nice. What is the pink/red coral 2/3s up on the left hand side?

There's 3 pinks in a row there, but you probably mean the largest at the top? That's a red planet "frag"

Oh, and I found a cool little mantis lurking around, maroon with white dots. Cute little guy

I like those damsels and those Idols look wicked in there. I'm looking forward to your "How do I get my Moorish Idols to stop eating all my corals" thread.

Ya, thanks for that So far there's no interest in corals or clams, and the original one I had was in a SPS tank for over a year and "hardly" nipped at all. Not enough to do any damage anyways. They have a reasonable track record for reefs, so pretty safe gamble.
