thanks you all for the compliments. As for husbandry goes. I change 20g of water every 2weeks with natural sea water. I also run a phoractor with rowaphos.

thanks guys. As for lighting i am running radium 20k on a galaxy ballast inside LAIII minis, skimmer is a BM250. The calcium reactor is a shuran denitratetor that I converted into a CA reactor.
