Nice graphics. How did you do them? Just from a quick read, I feel like your lights are on quite a bit. If your sill having cyano issues, this may affect it. My 2xMH 150w and 4x54w T5s run all on only about 4 hours. 2 hours ramp up and 2 hours ramp down. Maybe give it a try.

Thanks! I just did them in PhotoShop.

I have no issue with cyano at all. Only dino. And only B+ and C+ bulbs affect them. During Actinic periods they're gone. Kessil is so small for that tank size so it's basically "moonlight" and you can see it because extra corals PE showing already during these actinic periods, so they think it's already night.
I will add more pictures today to the thread of the current tank view.

Sump:

I've ordered the sump kit from Oceanbox Designs and used a 20g tank from the local pet store. The packaging of the kit was really nice, a lot of protection each piece was packaged separately. I've used the GE Silicone 1 to install them, the quality of the kit is really nice I would only like to see maybe a video tutorial with that kit, how to install it. But I've nothing else to add, I've even got red kit color for no additional charge ! Very happy with my choice, just need to clean the glass a little bit more later. Thank you again to Oceanbox Designs, awesome work.

Tank:

http://www.cdaquarium.com provided an awesome service with super friendly customer support during all the way. If you're planning to work with them in future I would recommend working directly, not like I did through Aqua Lab Aquaria. But working that way have also it's own advantages. Tank is just great, delivered in few days, nice clean seems, clean return holes and glass edges. At the bottom of the tank there is a black layer of hard foam / plastic attached for stability and leveling. I've installed a Synergy Reef Overflow 16" and waiting now for the plumbing parts delivery. I hope I can run it on the weekend !

4 Months update:



I've done a few changes in the system:

1. Switched from x1 MP40 to two MP10. Which I like much more !
2. Added Micro Scrubbing Bubbles aeration to the system.
3. Drilled a hole in the wall and I have now outdoor air coming to the skimmer.


Micro Scrubbing Bubbles are really working and pH is much more stable comparing before. Now it is between 8.2 and 8.35.

I run bubbles every hour for 1 min. during the day. And for 6 hours at night from 00:00 to 06:00 which helps burst pH level when lights are off. I've also noticed better skimming when added outdoor air to the skimmer and MSB.

I'm also turning micro bubbles ON for one hour after dosing CoralSnow which help to trap all the stuff and export.

It is very easy and cheap to add into the system and really fun to watch when it's on.

I was visiting the local aquarium and what is funny they are also using it. I was watching their coral reef display and suddenly bubbles started to blow all around from pipes simulating waves and aerating the tank.

I run Apex and you can actually see the pH burst during the bubbling. Fishes are also much more active etc ...
In three words I LOVE IT ! Hehehe ...

There are still some "dust" in the water after removing the sand. It will go away in a few days.

Added BioMate to the dosing schedule. Will start with 2 drops / 25 US gallons every other day to reduce PO4 a little then switch to 2 drops / 25 US gallons twice a week.

Alexander, I need your opinion please. In the last two weeks a few sps lost colors. Mostly it is blue and purple colors. Some of them become super bright with a little hint of light blue, some the opposite become like dark chocolate, brown.

Current params:

NO3: 0
PO4: 0.04
Alk: 7.0
Mg: 1450
Ca: 440
K: 440

Current dosing schedule:



I've adjusted this schedule and added another day of x3 PIF, do you think I can bump CV and Xtra Special. Or maybe you have other recommendations please?

Thank you!
