then I wanted to turn up my reef with 12x39W t5 fixture at the beginning of March 2017



I did it one day with full lights cycle, changed carbon and zeolithes, don't ask why i did it one day, I don't know... really...

It was a disaster, all corals lost colour, NO3 and PO4 was undetectable, I was uncousciuos of starving my corals for 2 months... I thougt problem is in montiporas which looked really god so I have replaced 4 buckets of montiporas leaving only acroporas and some pocilooporas/seriatoporas

It was the worst idea i could have, since then I have trashed most of acroporas, only few left...

then Aquaforest worek visited me and gave few advises so I have starded heavy feeding at the May/June 2017 it helped a lot, corals are comming from the death zone.

this is today's FTS


That's my story

Wow. Beautiful pair of mandarins.
The corals are certainly coming back nicely.
That is a lot of light..
What was your bulb combo at first and what is it now?
Looks like you have more fish than coral in that tank!
What is the nutrient control method?
Aside from your tunze.. Just zeolites and carbon dosing?

Thank You

at first it was 6xblueplus, 2 aquabluespecial, 2shallow water, 2actinic
now i have reduced to 6x blueplus, 2aquabluespecial, 2actinic

Yes I have a lot of fishes but i don't feed them much, spirulina flakes few times a day and one cube of frozen food daily or two if NO3 drops below 0.25ppm. Few times a week i feed corals with aquaforest foods and fito

I controll nutrients just with aquaforest NP PRO and PRO BIO S. I try to not exceed 2ppm of NO3 and do not go under 0.25ppm, measured with Colombo

I use zeo/carbon/phosminus from Aquaforest

Very nice looking tank and aquascape. What kind of rock did you use and how did you attach them like that, looks very cool.
