2019 tank update.
I sold off most of the coral in late 2017. I moved in January 2018. The remaining livestock lived out of a rubbermaid bin for a couple months. This 150 has been set back up since March.. I think...
With the purchase of a new house I knew I wouldnt have the time to spend on the tank I wanted. I first planned on getting out for a year or so until life started to slow back down. This didnt happen. I never realized how attached I was to the fee I had left. I think mainly my clownfish as it was the first fish i bought.
When I did set the tank up i knew it would be neglected my first summer in a new house. I tried to automate as much as possible to help me. I set up an easy water change, dosing, and feeder. The tank has done really well without much on my part.
I think the auto water change has been key. I do about 5 gallons per day. I havent done a larger water change outside of added some extra when removing rock. I will probably do a 20% or larger in the next couple of months.
My leds stopped working sometime after the move and I just recently got them working again. For the past 6-8 months my tank has been lit by just 4 old t5 bulbs. I got some pretty good growth with just that. Not pulling the greatest color but the growth surprised me when looking back at photos.
One of my buddy's gave me a couple sps frags in summer to test out.
and more recent.
I got rid of about 20 anemones, picked up some new frags, and am ready to really get this tank back to where it once was.
