  12. I feel like as aquarists we rely too much on numbers. And this is even more true when it comes to Nitrates. I have read studies (about the effect of nitrates in reef aquaria and coral aquaculture) saying that they are terribly bad, some that say the opposite and some that were unable to get to a real conclusion. I have seen friends killing tanks for the quest of a specific number, while not seeing that the issue was elsewhere. Is-it really that number (which is provided by a consumer grade test) that is making part of your sps population not thriving? How about all the other factors, like positioning, flow, the history of each specimen? From what I can see your aquarium looks just great. All that said, if I read it well you have a lot of turnover. Water moving so quickly between display and sump generates O2 (mechanically). What does all that extra O2 do when it meets the nitrogen in your tank? Do you remember the so called trickle filters in the 90's? Slow it down (I run the water in my display only once per hour in my filtration system) and wait. Keep up with the rest of the routine maintenance and you will see NO3 going magically down ;-) I hope this helps
  13. How your sps are doing? Polyps out? Color retained after long term acclimation (2/6 months)?
  14. Favorite Books?

    I like the old Albert Thiel books and Calfo's Book of Coral Propagation (which is dedicated to setup a coral business but it is rich of informations that can be used for everyday aquariums maintenance).
  15. Great pictures and thanks Holly for the meeting!
