First thank you all for the praise. My lighting is a 4x54w t-5 setup. I use two 14k UVL tubes and two 420 actinics. I took a piece of LR
that had lots of coralline growth on it and scraped the corallin off. I then took this mixture and mixed it with tank water. I then turned off my main pump and poured the coralline mixture in front of the remaining circulation pumps (1 koralia 2 and three 650 gpm pumps) These pumps are controled by a wavemaster pro unit by red sea. Make sure your Alk
and Cal are up to par and you should be good to go. The only drawback of this is that you will get lots of coralline growing on your front glass that have to be taken off. I also leave the lights on for 13hrs a day (not recommended for a new tank). That's it..
PS: lots of patiences..
