Can you tell us more about it? How long has it been going? What all do you do to it for maintenance?

It's been a little more than 6 months. I've had pretty good success. The only outright death I've had was an emerald crab early on. Had a firefish jump a few weeks ago and a pink bar goby jump early on. I lost a montipora digitata and a green birdsnest, but otherwise my corals have generally grown or stayed static. Wiped out an aptaisa invasion too.

I do 10-20% water changes weekly, I mix up with regular IO salt. I dose two part, but my calcium and alk still tend to run really low. My nutrients run fairly high but my corals seem to like it.

Filtration is an aquaclear 50 being run as a refugium with chaeto and a bag of carbon. Also running a koralia nano pump.

Here's the coral and the wrasse. The pictures are from diver's den, I don't have pictures of them in the tank yet.

The light is a lumini pixie 30. Not terribly strong but it was affordable and does the job
