I got it this afternoon.

LoL Thanks for the compliment. I could make a sticky, but I really don't know much about what I am doing. I have a basic understanding of Aperture, shutter speed, WB, and ISO, and that is about it.

Thanks guys! Things are going well. I did have 1 acro succumb to STN. Ziggy helped me frag it and try to save it, but alas, the rest started to turn as well. Oh well. Everything else seems to be going well, so I can handle the occasional death every now and then. That is the first problem I have had since I added the autodosers.

In the first post from today - the brownish/bluish birdsnest was more blue when I first added it a few weeks ago. Any thoughts on why it would lose color? It seems to be growing nicely as all those ends are pretty much new growth since adding.

35% white intensity, 45% blue at peak.

Think I should start creeping them back up a bit again?

Been several months since I made a change.

Really nice shots! One day I'm going to break down and get a DSLR. The more pics you post, the more I'm nudged that direction...

Some new shots from around the tank today. Picked up a new Aussie Scoly to go with the other one I have. Everything seems to be growing and doing well. The lights are up to 42% white, 60% blue now. Going to cruise at that level for awhile and see if I see any changes in the SPS.
