You can have all the experience in the world but if you are not doing PWC
`s and using tap it will catch up with you one day. I have a friend that had a nice tank for a few yrs that did the same but all of a sudden we get the "why is everything in my tank dead" thread. There comes a time when new tanks reach an imbalance because of heavy metals and other stuff that comes from tap and from not replenishing trace elements and diluting excessive nutrients from PWC
`s. Just something to think about and just sharing my experience.
Is this brain coral in the 90 gallon you mentioned in the my tank link. You might need to move some rock around to accomadate the brain coral. How about a pic of him in the tank.
