    Update time

    We have all the bulbs installed and it looks awesome. We moved a lot of the softies from our 75 gallon over to this tank as well as an open brain and candy cane colony. Things are doing great so far. We plan on adding the cuc soon. As of now we are almost fully stocked as far as coral goes. We want the zoas to have plenty of room to grow. We will be adding a few more different zoas but other then that just the cuc and a fish or 2.

    We also added a HOB filter for more aeration and to catch loose particles. The media will be cleaned in hot water weekly to kill off any nitrate that may build up.

    Hmm, does the temp of the water matter for rinsing nitrates out of the media? I have an HOB on mine as well, and I rinse one week and replace the next - but I've never rinsed in hot water.

    Looking very good!

    Thank you

    I've always rinsed the sponge on the return pump in our 75 in very hot water. Our tap water gets 150 degrees or more. Weather it makes a difference or not I'm not sure, but I've never seen nitrates in any of our reef tanks so I'm going to keep doing it, lol

    We added 4 more zoa frags to the tank last night. They were tubbs blue, metallic blue, nuclear green, and cats eye. Each frag had at least 5 polyps and we got all of them for $25

    So far we are almost 100% happy with the light. I was a little disappointed with the par levels on the sand bed. I'm going to add 8 more bulbs which will bring the par just where we want it. I forgot to mention that this lights gives a shimmer just like halides, plus the bulbs are good for 10+ years

    Thank you:) Lat night I ordered 8 more bulbs, 4 blue and 4 cool white. Hopefully that will give me the par I want on the sand, and improve the color a little more

    Update:
    The tank is doing awesome and we are getting some great growth on the zoas and our long polyp leather. At least 5 heads each on a few of the colonies. You should see the amount of pods in this tank . When I turn the lights on their all over the glass. I do have a few aptasia I need to take care off. We ordered 8 more bulbs which will hopefully be here soon and they will fine tune the color. The tanks been running less then 2 months and were already having to clean coralline off the front glass

    Pics to hopefully come this afternoon or this weekend

    Update time. The tank is approaching the 2 month mark and all is well. We added the CUC last week. 10 blue legged hermits, 5 cerith snails, 3 peppermint shrimps, and 5 nassuris snails. I ordered the only fish for the tank and it should be in in 2 weeks. We decided on a flasher goby which has some dramatic changes in color. heres a vid I found of it on you tube.


    We also added 8 more bulbs for a total of 18 and it really made the color great. Here are some pics
