Surfs Microreef update
I guess I am doing things right. My Manderin is thriving and the corals all seem to be doing well. I removed all the mechanical from the bays in the rear of the tank and loaded them with live rock scraps I got from my local Salt joint, Marinescape in Ottawa. I also added Macro algae and a single LED over the central bay. The copepods are non stop all over the tank. For scavengers I have a bristleworm (yes i've read the pro's & cons), a sifter star, 1 conch and some hermits as well as a cleaner shrimp (LUV this little guy) who molted last week. Sadly, these pics do not do the tank Justice...
I have to figure out how to get a more lifelike photo with the gear I have. I plan on getting a top of the line Canon in the near future. That my help?

I've got a canon, great camerasIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Tank looks awesome dude!Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

BTW, I am now adding Live marine Phytoplankton 3 times a week. The gorgonian requires (feeds) on zooplankton and I need to keep the cycle of Phyto to copepod steady...

I dose phyto as well,about 5 ml daily with a skip once a week. I like that gorgonian for sure.
