At restaurant called Bowl of Pho at Sunnyvale 94087

May 31,2021
Transfer 36 gal bow front into Red Sea Reefer from acro.jordan. First day of transfer corals show some signs of stress. Less polyp extension but no rtn. Fish enjoy new tank. Only the shy fox face hide all day. Black storm pair, fire fire, blue star wrasse, dragonett, and lyretail anthias female love their new tank. Current light are 1 xr30 g3 and 1 xr30 g5 pro. Only problem is getting eco tech live to work for xr30 g3. unable to creat account and setup. Sps getting 300 par while lps getting 120 par. Rock structure not final, will be moving rocks around in few days. I want the sps to get use to new tank parameters first before moving their rock.

Awesome to see it set up! Glad I was able to help get the tank and stand in, it seemed to go pretty smoothly. Hopefully this can bring in some repeat customers for pho!

Forgot to mention I use water from the purified water shop across my restaurant, great water and no ill effects so far, will be doing a icp in a couple of weeks. Use tropic marine pro and do water change every week 5 gal.

I just stopped by for some cheato, the tank is looking great! Keep playing with that skimmer height to get the performance you are looking for, and don't be afraid to change it in the short term to change the effect to what you want.
