I'm running phosban in a phosban reactor. Outside of that, no additional additives. For now, I'm doing ~30% water changes weekly, though.

I have increased my cleanup crew a bit, adding some more snails and 2 peppermint shrimp that were out of stock when I first tried. I have some red stuff growing in my fuge, which is possibly Cyano, but I'm not convinced of that yet. Kinda just watching how that goes.

Diatoms are in full bloom, as you can see from the pic, but hopefully they'll burn out soon.

My pagoda cup closed up day before yesterday some time, and hasn't reopened since. I've moved it off the sandbed, thinking it may have wanted higher flow, but it has yet to reextend the polyps. Has me a little concerned because it was open for a few days after it first went in the tank.

All of the other corals are looking really good. Zoas and the Acro are fully extended every day, the acans look good, and the trumpet and frogspawn are also extending themselves daily.

Scroll up - see my earlier shots with diatoms everywhere? We all know the growing stages of a new tank, don't be worried about that.
