Really like the minimalistic look. Totally going to copy you and not pay royalties.

Copy away!!

This is the look I had envisioned before Summer 2018; Large colonies the fish can enjoy. I like the look of many small colonies but have found over time they can't be controlled and it turns into a big clustered mess of fighting and overgrowth.

The plan is to prune and replant to keep the colonies in check so the fish can hang out in and swim through them.
Large branching masses of greatness from rock to waterline

I'm thinking this will also help to keep the lower portions of the colonies lit and aid me in keeping the rock cleaner.

Gather an update wouldn't hurt

Fall of 2019 I was battling slow SPS growth and suspected new tank syndrome after my re-start back in June/July 2019.
I went through all the dinos/diatoms/miscellaneous algae.

It wasn't until Jan 2020 that I found Red Bugs. I had not added ANYTHING to my tank since 2016, so either I had them all along, or they came from some snails I bought locally.

I treated them in Feb/20 with some Milbemycin and what a HUGE difference after. Polyp extension is massive, and my pod population bounced back awesomely.

I started regularly dosing NO3 and PO4 around this time and my SPS colors are looking awesome.

I'm still testing weekly the Big 3, K, and NO3 PO4, but I plan on backing off the N and P testing to Monthly once I get a grip on my tank's usage.

Guess that's all for now, so time for pics
