    Just incase. In the past I had aiptasia and it was pain cause I had so many wrasses that would eat any peppermint shrimp I would add to the tank.
    I hope this guy will not bother coral thu ha ha.

    Added a nice elegance. The echinata started coloring up nicely.
    Goes without saying I do not take good pictures. Colors are way nicer than pictures showing lol[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm jealous of that elegance.

    Now that the frag tank is full of stuff to grow and frag, I can start collecting the LPS show pieces I want.

    Where do you do most of your coral shopping?

    I'm going to sac on Sunday, LPS is a lot cheaper up there than in the bay. If you're looking for anything, let me know and I'll take a look for you.

    Also, I have a wholesale connection in the central valley and can get stuff that way. I'm going to order a box of LPS in April or may.

    Most of the shops don't have them but locals are selling for $200 head.

    I know my buddy is getting about 20 heads in this week.

    Yes it is. Good eye. I am not on to acan at all. This was a small frag I got early on to test the system readiness:))

    That’s a lot to dose manually

    That’s what I was thinking. One was twice daily.

    Lol yeh zeovit not for everyone. But honestly it's not that much. The dosing described is over a full week.
    I'm reality every day I need to dose 2 to 3 bottles(30 sec) morning and 2 bottles evening. So it's not bad at all.
    Zeovit have 2 paths
    1- full elements control where you dose each 3lement aside and control the value of each.
    2- over all system dosing. Where you use coral system(4 bottles) that contain all the elements and nutrients at once.

    I like the firat path cause I enjoy controlling each parameter separately.

    I do like the zeosysten thu, once dialed success is assured.
