    *Knock on wood*

    My tank has been doing extremely well. I am currently still using 2 part for my dosing needs but I fear I may need to go to a combination of 2 part and my calcium reactor again if the growth continues to increase. I originally thought to myself that I should go back to a reactor once my consumption exceeds 200ml /day. That has since passed and I am still reluctant to go back to the reactor for fear of messing something up. Currently this is my dosing schedule and times of dosing using the Apex DOS:




    What I think I might need to do is slowly go back to a Calcium reactor once I reach probably 500ml/ day and get my Alk dialed in with the reactor and use my 2 part Caclium to offset the difference. Currently I'm only dosing 74ml/ day to maintain a 7.5 dkh but I'm dosing about 382ml/ day of Calcium to keep my Ca at 1450 ppm. A huge difference but with no clam in my tank, I can only assume that my sps and Coraline algae are consuming Calcium at roughly 400 ml/ day!!!!

    Here are some pics of corals for everyone to check out. I also was super lucky and won a raffle for some unique newly released frags from Oceanlife Aquariums in Houston, courtesy of Nick Nguyen:
