Corals are looking great Ricky. Growth looks good too. All done with a very simple system.

Beautiful tank. How do you like going bare bottom? Any down sides. I'm about to start on a complete rebuild of my 110 rimless and have been thinking about whether it would be easier to maintain as a bare bottom. Thanks.

I like it as I currently have all nine different encrusting mdntipora on the bottom with the idea the whole bottom glass will one day be covered in multiple colors of mdntipora. As far as cleaning goes it makes cleaning detritus very very simple as it will all pile up in one spot and can be siphoned out. The only downfall to bare bottom is having to look at the pile of detritus until my next water change as it usually accumulates the day after a water change.

I like the Jebao's the don't last very long but they are still much cheaper than a Maxspect Gyre or Vortech.

Nothing positive to report right now, I am trying to figure out why I am having random Acropora deaths and some corals are just not as vivid as before. I sent in a few ICP tests and I am convinced it is something other than water chemistry. I started doing weekly water changes again and running GFO. I also took my LED's offline as I think they were overkill (Two 250 watt 20K Hamilton Metal Halides, two 54 watt ATI Actinic T5's plus two SB Reef Actinic LED strips). My nitrates have always stayed around 25 ppm (Salifert) and my phosphates are between 0.04 and 0.08 ppm (Hanna). The colors started to slowly fade in June a few weeks after adding the two LED strips and hand dosing Seachem Reef Trace & Seachem Reef Plus.

I am currently dosing vinegar and I replaced my lights, so far so good.
