Thanks Rick. AVís corals were extremely healthy. Especially the OP and WD.

Jesse, your tank is looking really nice! You got a really nice grab from AV99 - I got some frags from Tim back in March, great quality!

Cheers Rick

The flow is fantastic in the tank. I have Toby to thank for that!

Indeed. Things are actually working the way they are supposed to work with PAR and such. Iím very thankful.

The very top of both columns, with T5ís & LEDís, are 400+. The WD and OP are at about 300-330 and the Efflo on the right is about 450. Sandbed averages about 200 close to the glass.

An update on the 75g. After discussion with Brian about our similar issues and an unassuming ATI test, I decided to follow Brianís path and started doing 20% water changes weekly. Itís been about 6 weeks and Iíve been seeing great results. I am now leaning towards the problem being a contaminent. Possibly not rinsing all the bleach/acid out of the rock. Some of the older corals are still in rough shape but the newer sticks are really looking good!

Too bad the video doesnít portray your colors as great as they are in person. Jesseís tank is truly amazing in person.

I vacuum 1/2 of the sand weekly. Alternating left side then right side. I also have a pink spot goby on the left side of the tank that sifts that side. You can see his gravel slide in front of his cave. He doesnt stray too far from there.
