Well, I picked up the Tunze 6025 from LFS today and got a pinkish Acro frag. I like the flow of the new powerhead. However, the powerhead makes a clicking noise anytime it starts up on my wave maker. So I put my Voyager 2 on the timer instead and running the Tunze full time. The coral has just been acclimated, dipped with Revive and put in the main tanks.

Nice growth! Are you using Kessil? I wish I could just reach into your fish tank through my computer screen and take that Setosa. LOL. It's too nice!

Yes it is the a150 "ocean blue". It's my favorite coral . It's grown from a 1/2" frag about 6 months ago into that

That's what I use too. I like it a lot. I bought 3 originally but ended up using 2 of them. 3 goosenecks didn't look pretty over my 4ft tank but 2 look ok.

Yeah the gooseneck is a little ugly but I only have one ATM. When I upgrade to a 40 ill have to get another. They're very nice little lights though and put out incredible spectrum and shimmer

Shimmer is nice for sure. I was offered 2 brand new A350Ws at $300 each. it was a good deal. I passed on them because I like shallower tanks and my 60 gallon is 17 inches tall. Thought they would've been an overkill and went with 150s. No regrets at the moment because I plan on getting a 5ft tank that will probably be 20" tall and 20" deep so 150s will do a good job.

Flow in Your SPS/Mixed Reef

Dang it. My neon green Stylophora has retracted a little bit since I put in the new Powerhead. Might have to change the direction of the flow
