    So, at last first livestock went into the tank last night! The thing has been cycling for probably close to two months now with ammonia and some frozen food here and there. Ammonia reads zero and nitrates are just slightly elevated. Today I added chatomopha lit by a magenta hydroponics led.

    Aquascaping is now done (at least for now)!. Trying to plan ahead for SPS growth :p We'll see how things go, maybe we may make some of the structures taller.

    It's been a while since I've posted anything, but there have been lots of good changes recently. I'll be posting a new video tonight, but in the meantime here's a video from mid march. Unfortunately (and i kind of expected this) the two leopard wrasses didn't make it too long in the tank. They were both eating frozen food so who knows...

    That giant green monti started from a quarter sized frag ~2-3 years ago

    The most recent addition is a school of lyretail anthias. Any tips on what to feed would be great :) They don't seem to like frozen mysis.

    Doesn't work on my iPhone but works on my laptop.

    Looks good.

    How close is the camera to the tank?

    yea, most IP cams/security cams are wide angle. this one is prettywide angle too and this setup didnt work well at all on my 40b, but cause this one is substantially bigger, it looks good.

    Which Nestcam do you have and what setting are you running it at? I'm considering getting one if I can get Fiber.

    That's pretty cool. Does it automatically adjust the white balance?

    Try some fish roe to entice those anthias (reef caviar, LRS, etc.). Just need a feeding response from them and then start introducing the mysis and other foods to the mix.

    Thanks for all the tips. They are now eating frozen enriched brine and mysis.
