One thing I will say is its a dirty mix.. leaves a good bit of residue over and is a slow mixer but I'm betting that's due to more stuff being in the water/saltmix

But with a power head it wouldn't matter how hard of a mix, just set it and forget it.

Two new pieces. Ones a birdsnest with a lime green body and pink polyps (hard to see) and the other in not to sure, some type of acropora I believe but it has a bluish purple body with red polyps. Just gonna have to take my word for it since my camera sucks haha.

Found a 2'x4' frag tank already drilled for $100 gonna talk em down to 50-75 hopefully to plumb into my system cause as the days go by I'm really starting to run out of room in my tank. Before when I said it I had some decent spacing still but I'm getting jammed pack in here lmao.. to bad some of you guys don't live closer so I could share some frags easier haha (50 frags on the sand, 22 on racks and about 40 spread out on the rocks)..

Ya along with a few others maybe Jess' and the boys' tank could use some test corals as well haha I would send dino something but I think he is having more space issues then me in that 29 lmao.. I really need to get this tank though. Same place has a 400w MH used for 125 so maybe talk them down to 80-90 and get a new bulb, then I could house about 400 frags pretty easily

Wow 400 frags/400w is a pretty big number lol that would be nice if u could talk em down a few bucks. I'm not a fan of MH but hey for the right price, go for it

Ya I figure the tank has 1152 square inches of a footprint so technically with one inch disks I could fit about that many in there but I'd like to give each about 2 square inches of space that way all my frags can be moved out of my DT and I can keep just show colonies and mother colonies in there.

Yeah that would be a good idea, definitely. Sounds like you know what you're doing haha

Man, that's one encrusted tank! Those new corals are killer. You're making me think about a SPS tank. I'm still set on doing a planted seahorse tank with a few softies at the moment.
