Well it's been about a year exactly since I restarted this tank.....

It has been great and running smoothly with everything being automated all I do is feed the fish and check alk once a week. Fill ATO reservoir every 2 weeks and do a WC maybe 1 time a month.

Everything has been doing really good and growing well.. I have given friends frags and tank is still overly full haha. I have Jaw Breakers hiding through out the tank in the rock work and randomly behind stuff.

Fish are good. Unfortunately lost my leopard wrasse randomly but replaced him with a easy to care for small six line who is awesome as well for such a cheap fish.

Not really sure what else I can do with such a small tank but things are really starting to touch a little too much so might need to start re working it again.......

Wow it is looking awesome. So how many months did you do the 10% change for?

Sorry been kinda MIA but wanted to post a few updated pictures.

Tank has been running smoothly by itself.... I finally did a 5G WC yesterday after about 3 months of no WC's.

Dosing has been holding steady and no real changes other than all the corals starting to fight over territory due to them growing out.

I never thought I could fit sooo much into such a small tank.

Tank looks spectacular. Is your back section set up the same way as it was on the last page? Still running the ghost skimmer?

Yea everything is still exactly the same! No changes what so ever. Its not the best skinmer and I've been thinking of upgrading but my tank seems to handle the nutrient export fine.

Im just running out of room, kinda want to get a bigger tank but I also don't want any extra headaches lol. I literally just feed the fish, clean the carbon reactor every 2 week's and top off the ATO.

Haha right!

Yea to be honest Ive had large tanks and this would be my smallest tank ever and I really love the AIO set up! Learning what works over the years and how to incorporate it into this small tank has made it super simple to manage.

I literally just feed the fish daily, add ATO water as needed which is usually once every 2 weeks, clean skimmer and carbon chamber every 2 weeks and do a water change rarely.

Everything else is pretty much automated from dosing to light schedule so no real need to mess with the tank much.

Only issue is you run out of coral real estate fast!

Wow, very impressive. I like seeing the corals grow over the year and a half (before/after pics).

What light are you running? I didn't see it listed in your setup. Thanks.

Love the rockwork and all the polyps are fully extended which looks amazing.

Well since we are all in quarantine lock down.... I have been enjoying looking at the tank since I have so much more down time.

Hopefully this ends soon as we can all get back to our normal lives!

Here is a full tank shot from yesterday, tank is doing good. Main issues I have it over growth and corals competing for space. I am now dosing 18ml of Alk and 18 ml of CA daily and also dosing my trace elements. Alk has been staying around 7-7.5 and Ca around 450
