Do you spot feed it anything? With that many heads it would take alot of mysis to feed each head

I did when I first got it but not anymore. Sometimes I'll squirt some food at it but not really. The only coral that gets fed everyday in my tank is my fathead dendrophyllia which is non photosynthetic

Yeah I'm liking the reactor! It seems to be working ok. Gonna change up the sponge next time so the GFO tumbles a bit more but it is ok for now.

I hate how the sponges trap air under them on the initial fill. You dont want it to tumble too much though and grind itself down into sludge. I always try to mimic waves in the ocean on the top surface of GFO, sometimes it channels though which is annoying. The reactor is solid though. Be sure not to over tighten it! Just snug.

Photos and coral look great though. That Potter's is a good looking fish man!

That's odd. I've had my kole tang for almost 2 yrs with no issues. Any thoughts on potential causes? Sorry about the loss.

Sorry to hear that Bribo. I've considered getting one, but I dont think the 40B is big enough though some people have had good luck with them. Is there plans for a bigger system?
