Just got a new smartphone. It's a Huawei P30. I've read so much about its awesome camera that I still got it even after the company fell under so much international criticism. All these pics were taken without any filter at all. I'm sure that the pics will get better as I learn how to use it, but I have to say I'm floored by the camera so far. They partnered with Leica for the glass. IMG_20190609_201733.jpgIMG_20190610_125206.jpgIMG_20190609_100812.jpgIMG_20190609_144824.jpgIMG_20190609_100908.jpg

You've got some smokin cool monti's in that tank.
I really like the texture the undata's bring to the top down pics.

Thank you for sharing.

The green star polyp completely took over the big arched rock in the center. After awhile, I realized that the green star polyp was sitting on the best sps real estate in the tank and I tried removing it manually. I've been doing this for about a year, and not really winning the battle. The xenia was also all over the place, but I felt that was actually helping with nutrient removal and its easier to remove manually. Then Eric "ReefWreak" on Reef Central wrote in his thread about using Fluke Tabs to eradicate Green Star Polyp. Eric had success, and he was kind enough to give me some of the left over Fluke Tab dust. I mixed a small amount of the Fluke Tab dust in with some tank water and poured it into the return pump areas. Over the next three days the GSP closed up and is hopefully gone forever. The xenia has also melted away, maybe 90%. I removed my carbon bag when I put the Fluke Tab in, then three days later I did 10% water change and put a fresh bag of carbon in the sump. I also changed my filter socks more frequently because there was some xenia debris getting sucked up. I believe Fluke Tab can be toxic to shrimp, but I don't have any shrimp. Overall its been super successfull fix for something I've been struggling with for a long time.

Thank You Eric!!!!

The montis and acans are eye catching. What type of torch is that?

The torch was a single head given to me by a reefing buddy Jim Coughlin. He had a huge colony that broke one day and that one head grew to maybe six heads now.

Might I request a full tank shot? Been a while and I'd love to see how the whole thing is looking these days.
