Thanks guys. I need to keep some movement in the tank to appease my wife - she likes the SPS colors but not the boredom.
I had Gord over last Tuesday and after a discussion I counted my 'nems. I wish I hadn't. I now have 13 and will need to deal with them soon ...

So, update.
I bought some new wet/fake rock from J&L

I plan on replacing this structure in a month or so, and selling it with all the encrusted bits, minus what I want to keep

Thanks Mr !!
And that's with no carbon or gfo, and no sand cleaning.
I balanced my PO4 with the addition of liquid nitrogen from Seachem and haven't had to add any since Jan '17. At that time I pulled my reactors out of the sump. I literally use/dose nothing to remove PO4 anymore.

Thank you. When are you gonna come buy some corals?

Since I was talking about it, I thought I'd test tonight as I haven't checked these since the middle of May;
PO4 0.021
NO3 0.00

I ran a bag of carbon this week for 5 days for the first time since I don't know when - not this year anyway and can't be bothered to look through my journal. My water looked a bit yellow-ish in a white bucket, yet it's still clear looking through the tank. It's clear/blue-ish in a bucket again. Good for another year ...
And ya, I ran a bag as I can't be bothered to hook up a pump to a reactor I don't even know why I'm keeping the parts!

And my yellow tang made a full recovery from his HLLE once the carbon was removed. I can hardly see the scars now.
On that, back a few years ago while trying to heal my yellow tang, I tried adding Brightwell Vitamin, Minor & Trace Element stuff ... all it did was fuel algae growth.
Removing my carbon reactor was the best thing I ever did.
I'm not saying it's for everyone. I don't have much coral warfare going on so I just don't need it.

Sorry, no pics today
