Thanks. No skimmer, stock lighting (72w) I plan on getting halides once the bulbs in this hood go bad

wow - stock lighting and skimmer?

did you mod the tank at all, or is that just a straight off the shelf BC29?

wow, very nice, everything looks super healthy too. What, if any additives are you using/lighting? I have a 33gal and my corals do not look half as healthy. Also what salt are you using? I really want to get my corals looking as healthy as yours!

no additives, stock lighting, i dont have any test kits as i assume (know) nitrate phosphate ph are all in check, so my calc and alk are checked at the lfs every now and again. and i use buffer and turbo calc to keep everything at reasonable levels. salt is bought from lfs and its instant ocean. I would have to say the key is not having any really demanding corals. brain corals, euphylias and all the soft corals are really tough beautiful corals.

funny this thread just came back up as my yellow leather has shut up for the last 3 days. hopefully just shedding.

I would have to say that a lot of people over complicate whats needed to maintain a good looking reef. they think you have to have massive lighting, a skimmer, ato, a rigid maintenance schedule etc. Dont get me wrong these things are the best way to provide perfect conditions for your reef as this is our responsibility as reef keepers, however money and time constraints just dont allow these things.

I might have to take the approach of the non demanding corals, as I'm running out of time during the week when exams come up to do maintenance.

Awesome tank though.

I know absolutely nothing about cameras, its my brothers.

only thing i did was use the macro setting except the FTS which would only work with the sunset mode.
