    UPDATE.

    All the corals are good and growing 1month after the blackout... no dinos showing up :D :D just had a little stress... my mistake high salinity I think it was Core7 related and me forgetting to take water out but it's now solved and back to track.

    Last week I went to Porto, Portugal to grab more frags... and since I'm running out of space I had to do a little re-scape I think it's fine now ahaha

    So check out the current look :)

    Hello reefers :)

    KH Director update and top-down coral photography

    When I installed the GHL KH Director I posted some photos and not much more... so let's start the 6months review ;)

    The measures have been rock solid, very accurate with my Hanna that I cross check sometimes... (0.03dKh-0.15dKh variations from the Hanna) so not much "error" maybe the KHD is even more precise than the Hanna hummm

    P4 + KH Director is also controlling my KH automatically for more than 2months keeping it very stable :) like you can observe on the graph below :)

    And now some top-down coral photography :)

    Hello everyone,

    update... and some pics.

    Lately I have been adding a lot of organics into the tank like Amino Acids and coral foods to try and keep organics UP, Kh has been falling so Core7 dosage has gone up quickly which is good and bad LOL

    everything is growing apart from 2 acros I lost maybe due to previous problems... I think it's normal will see...

    I have been controlling S.G. quite well plus all the elements are in check, so no water changes for more than 3months :D

    So let's see the pics, hope you enjoy them.

    piece.

    Small update.

    Everything is fine :)
    Elements consumption is very high at the moment so I will be changing over to Calcium Reactor, Sr and I are also being deplited quite fast I'm dosing 100ml of Strontium per week and 6.45ml/week of Iodine, this will go up with the change to calcium reactor but that's ok... at 53ml/day of Core7 is becoming unsustainable LOL

    some macro shots as usual:

    Its photos like yours that I hate ( sorry ) it always makes me think I should go back on the sps trail but then remember all the hassle I had testing and making sure everything was spot on. Ripped all mine out except a couple of easy ones and carried on the euphyllia route as im just lazy LOL
