Thank you knowen. 

I dose b ionic two-part once a week along with foundation magnesium. Algae grows so well in my sump that I only have a little hair algae in one low flow area in a back corner of my tank. Nothing I'm concerned about as it's localized and doesn't interfere with any of my corals.

I got a rare glimpse of my pistol/goby pair hard at work today. Normally, they skitter back into their hole the second I get near the tank. However, this time the goby kept his eye on me (never flinching), and allowed the pistol to continue working for nearly 10 minutes. The quality of the video is not great, but at the 1:55 and 3:55 mark you can see some unique behavior as the pistol clears a hermit and nassarius snail that was in the way.

Hope you enjoy this rare glimpse of my favorite tank inhabitants. My water is always cloudy because of this guy digging, but I would never get rid of this pair. The symbiotic behavior they display is simply fascinating.

Note, the first 1 minute of the video is rough, until I tweaked the zoom and angle a bit. The ability to see what is going on gets significantly better at the 1 minute mark.

Where did you pick up the tank and stand from? Been considering starting a new tank and a 60 gal cube seems to fit the bill.

I purchased my tank directly from CAD Lights web site. They shipped it freight straight to my house. The stand was difficult to put together, but for the price, I'm pretty pleased with the whole setup.

Decided to practice with my DSLR again today, as I haven't used it on my tank for over a year. It is such a challenge shooting a reef tank, but I got a few I liked. Enjoy!

It has been a couple years since my last post. Luckily, my tank is still kicking despite BJD taking out about 90% of my LPS 1.5 years ago. Things have stabilized and the survivors are growing better than ever. 

Here are some tank shots today, as I still want to document my tank despite the losses. This hobby really can try a person's patience.

This hobby isn’t for those who lack patience and lots of ups and downs for most people. Tank is looking great.
