I really love seiryu stones but the seller gave me a lot of dragon stone. And they don't effect water parameters :)

Every day more monte carlo is melting.
Tried to trim some but pretty hard with all the healthy leaves around it. Same for dhg belem.

Anyways a 14 day update for who is interested. (lights are some lower) Colors are still washed out. Does this lighting suck? CRI 80 and 6800k, 3200 lumens. Might get a chihiros a801 or something if it will be better. I wanted to buy the SB reef box basic 16" but it was to heavy for my aluminium stand.
