Thanks noy!

I have added two frag racks on the left side of the tank with a Reef Brite LumiLite Pro LED. They are mainly for zoas/palys frags.

Here are my coral feeding schedules for those who are wondering:

Mixture of Coral Frenzy and Reef-Roids - target feed once a week.
AcroPower - broadcast feed once a week.
Red Sea Reef Energy AB+ - broadcast feed once a week.

Using Alkatronic to dose Tropic Marin All-For-Reef about 110 ML a day.

Also manually dosing DIY Coral Snow (simulate ZEOvits which is by the way 10 times more expensive) once a day, if I remember, to keep the water crystal clear!

I am thinking of replacing the drain pipe on my red Sea XL525 V3 Sump. See picture of the stock pipe with valve below. Can anyone do one for me by replacing the stock valve with a gate valve and let me know how much? Ideally you have a similar tank and no need for me to measure pipe lengths and diameters, etc.

I forget the diameters but you need the fitting to go from metric to imperial. From there it's pretty straight forward to plumb.
I hope someone can make a pre-assembled one for sale :)

Red and blue Linckia starfish. The red one has been in the tank for over 15 months. The blue one is a new addition, only 3 weeks in my tank. Hopefully it will live longer. I had one lived over two years in my previous tank until I shut down my tank and sold it.

What’s your secret Albert ? I tried twice with Linckia but they melt within a couple of days… how do you acclimate them ?

For the red one it is easy as they are very hardy. As for the blue one, I find that the key is to get an active one in the first place, Best if it is on the glass, not staying on the tank bottom and not moving.

I quarantine every thing wet but I read that starfish & sea urchins cannot carry the encysted stage of ich (Peter Burgess 1992), so I just acclimate it for about an hour. After that to be sure no water from other system gets into my display tank, I use 6 small containers filled with display tank water, then rinse through these 6 containers one by one before putting it into the DT.

It’s been a long hiatus for me. Went thru entire thread. Wow ... amazing set up Albert! Been a long time and I recall when you moved and shut down previous tank. Sadly I had to shut my 180 gallon down due to a flood last year. Was forced to because I had to replace the hardwood flooring. Was thinking of restarting but sadly I won’t be ... for now.

going to be selling all my gear now!😞
