Biocube 32 adventure

My current tank thatís been up and running for a year. First tank Iíve setup since I broke down my 40 breeder in 2015 (?). This tank has been quite the learning experience and Iím happy with how itís progressed, despite the crashes, nutrient deficiencies, wasted corals, etc etc. This hobby is an ever changing experience with endless knowledge. Anyways, hereís a picÖ fairly extensive in terms of filtration and dosing for an AOI, and Iím always looking to improve it.

This tank has been a rollercoaster. Been through a lot maintaining it. For example, just pulled this vermitid snail infested trumpet that slowly withered away, at least I figured out whyÖ

Nice vermetid tubes. I've lost corals to them too. It happens. Mine is a 4 year long aiptasia fight. But you're looking great. Keep it up.

My peppermint shrimp took care of aiptasia for me in this tank. Then took care of some corals too 🤣 I wasnít terribly disappointed when it died, as bad as that sounds.

Wasnít terribly happy with the single AI Prime for output, so I added a secondÖ set it up for a 7 day acclimation, and I think it will be a solid move

Yep. If they end up splitting again the tank will be converted to a nem only tank, and the coral will all end up in the new 75 gallon build, as long as the time frame allowsÖ

Thanks man. Recently just very quickly (3-4 weeks) got rid of a dino issue that took out some of my acans. Things are leveling out a bit it seems.

That GSP on the back wall is taking over and staring to grow onto the plating monti. Iím predicting it will be covering the entire back wall in the next 3-4 months barring any issues.
