Nice I'll be following along as I'm doing the same. Going from bottom to top on left side of my BC29.

Hey Convict, how long did it take for you to get from (I'm assuming a frag) to what it is now?

They were about the size of a golf ball with the expedition of one which was smaller. There's if I remember correctly 7 all together that all meshed in together. Total time was about 3 months

Nope not really, and yea I though fast also. Calcium is now 480-500 am alk is 12. I had to start dosing about hmm... 3 months ago due to low levels. I believe the levels were low due to a growth spurt in corals. With daily dosing of B-ionic 2 part that's what levels have maintained at. Oh I dose 8mL of each part at night.

If you have any suggestions or opinions fire away or am I doing ok?
