I actually was going to wait a little to update because big things are happening soon with the tank. But since you asked, here's whats been happening.

Algae issues: most algae hasnt grown back. The bryopsis is still there, but it doesn't grow back once I rip it out. It's going to be a pain cleaning though. The algae on the back wall is also the same way, which Im excited about.

Corals: everything is super happy!! The zoas you gave me are doing amazing, one of the healthiest corals in my tank. The green skeleton with red polyped sps is very vibrant, although its only encrusted a bit. Everything is doing well though, and that's what matters. The lights are only at 10% each!!!

Future plans: 1. Get inverts! I told my friend about sexy shrimp and he's in love, so I gotta get a few. That unfortunately means no invert loving fish though :/ 2. Getting and rodi unit. My bday is coming up, and thats the only thing I've asked for. 3. Finish making the tank barebottom. It's really close but I haven't finished cuz I ran out of new saltwater. 4. Get fish. I'm getting a b&w clown most likely. Everything else is up in the air.

Sounds good and glad to hear about the zoas.. I finally made my first tank thread after the big move last week (man I was scared everything was gonna die haha)

Update

Early bday present!!!!!! I acted like a 5yr old when I saw the bulkreefsupply box at my door. Its an rodi unit!! Which means water changes!! Which means no more algae haha!! It came with a tds meter, pressure gauge, and flush kit. Its super nice and I love the clear tubes, it helps a bunch. I have some cash so I might go and get a hammer... Maybe.
