Very Nice! would love it if you could post a little more on your pod going setup.

Got some new pics up. New corals have settled. I shot some with the cellphone camera, and some with the cell through my son's blue blocker sunglasses. First shot is nude the 2nd is with the amber/orange to knock down the actinics

Tank has been humming along just fine. Occasional algae, nothing much. I did order a pair of 165 watt chinese black box lights and a dimming module for my apex, going to do a little rewiring and get it going. I did lose 1 fish, a chromis that came from Pallins old tank. Unknown COD, but it was in the tenticles of my rbta

Tank has been running on auto pilot. Occasional bout with GHA, a little cyano from time to time, but other than that, it has been left alone.

Current Stock:
Pair misbar clowns
Royal gramma
Small chromis
Lawnmower blenny
Yellow head sleeper goby
Firefish
Flame angel
Blue heptus tang
Mandarin
And 2 skunk cleaner shrimp

My RBTA went on a walk about after the crash, and has disappeared entirely.

Coming up on 3 years with the 72. Made quite a few changes:
Swapped t5 for Chinese LED
Tried an RKL, went to Apex
All Jebao powerheads
Swapped Reef Octopus Skimmer out for a Bubble Magus curve
BIOPELLETS, plastic magic
Titanium heat tube

Basically the tank, stand, return pump, and the sump are all that hasn't been tinkered with, for now. Looking at a DC return pump

Controlling and the less heat benefits are great.
