I almost packed it in after the tank crash, I am glad I stayed with it.

thanks all. I do nothing special and have no fancy equipment so it is possible for anyone to get these results.
IMO the quality of water that we use is the most important thing, that is why I use ro/di.
I used kold steril for about 6 months last year to try and save a few bucks and all I got for my efforts was a bad case of cyno. I switched back and after a few months it was gone and the coral are growing better then ever. B-Ionic dosed daily and Liquid life for the corals and that is it. Oh regular water changes with Ocieanic salt.

Looks great seaham358..
What are your numbers like? Calcium, Alk? Do you dose calcium? (I would think so with all that purple coralline in there :P )
Your VHO lighting looks great.. care to share what kind of bulbs your using? It seems like veryone is useing Icecap ballasts so..
Im just going to assume that one..
Thanks for sharing..

2 Icecap ballast with URI VHO bulbs 2- actinic white and 2 super actinic.
I dose B-ionic 2 part calcium and alkalinity daily I like to keep my cal between 400-450 and alk 9- low 10. But the last several months I have been having trouble keeping the cal above 380 and the alk above 8. Things are growing great now so the tank may be using it up faster.
Most guys I know that use Oceanic have no trouble keeping there cal above 420 most do not even have to use any additives.

Thanks again ...
