Nice SPS btw. I'm working on my first reef currently. A 55g mixed, 25g sump/fuge
430watts, asm g1 skimmer, 2 korlias, ect...man this hobby is expensive. I just need to finish
the plumbing and wiring.
I belong to www.bostonreefers.org without them I'd have another freshwater tank. :bounce:

Very nice. Are you running the UV 24/7? Or only with new fish/corals. And are you running a Calc. reactor or using a 2 part.

I use kalk in my top off water in the auto top off...The UV i run 24/7. I also have 2 peristalic dosing pumps that dose 2 part daily. I am in an apartment and ran out of real estate to fit a calcium reactor and CO2 setup.
