    Today's update with the tank . Things looking pretty much good . Ofcoarse I have algae - same cyano, hair as everyone does . Measured my phophates and nitrates and after 3 readings with 2 different test kits - I decided NO MORE TESTING of nutrients .

    Its heart breaking to see numbers and more confusing as the numbers reflect nothing on the coral colors and growth.

    Decided to start relying solely on how corals look to decide if I want to change anything .

    Nitrates at 30 and PO4 at 0.2. No GFO or carbon . Only bubble king and lots and lots of food for my fishes .

    Flow is pretty high with 2 Tunze 6095s, 1 6055, 1 6105 running at 100% and 1 seaswirl connected to my return . Increased radium hours from 8 to 11 over the coarse of a month and many browned out acros started showing wayyy more colors.
