Thanks for the compliments. I bought the clam a fair while back off Daryn1, the blue nem I got from coral candy and various sps have come from Extreme reef, coral candy frags, the lobo and acan I got from Acanman. Various zoos have come from Rodneyri and Zeason. I did start zeovit a bit earlier on but had issues with stn on 6 colonies and had to frag what I could, so I stopped it for a while to get everything back in check. I would have had to stop dosing zeo anyway, at the time it was hard to get any zeobak and I would have run out anyway. I have found a new supplier of zeo products ( Coral Candy ) and I'm all stocked up to give it a good crack.

A couple more pics, I'll try and take a couple more over the next few days.

Thanks for the comments Dan and Joe. It's taken a bit of time to get it this way, the challenge is maintaining it long term :crossfingers:

Thanks for the kind comments.
My current tank parameters are
Alk: 7.0 dkh salifert
Cal: 440 ppm a little high but want to get it down to 420 salifert
Po4: 0.05 hanna photometer
No3: 0 salifert
Mag: 1290ppm salifert
Sal: 1.025
Temp: 26.5-27c

I'm currently running my reactor 3hrs on 3 off at around 360lph, dosing 4 drops zeobak and 0.3mls zeostart3, pump the reactor and kneed the carbon bag everyday at the moment. Hopefully all will go well :crossfingers:
