What ramp schedule do you have your lights on? I have the same one and am curious what you find to work best.

I've had to have a move round my acan island was getting crowded and there space to grow was limited as seen here




So popped to my LFS on way home and picked up a bigger piece of live rock that I plonked in RO for an hour not worried about die off as my system will soon sort that out I just did not want to risk any nasties getting in.

Here it is now and they have plenty of room they are all moody though having been moved.





I was surprised at how many extra heads have already grown on them just a case of allowing them to fill that rock now
