Sweet spot


Recommended Posts


 How long has it taken to get your tank through to a sweet spot?  I have been noticing that everything at first seems to be  a struggle. Then things seem to smooth out for awhile and you start thinking oh this reef keeping is easy.


A few months later you start looking close at your corals and you see some type of unwanted pest then your fighting that as your tank slides back almost to where you started


6 months later things are back on track. Back on easy street. Then your not able to balance who knows what in your tank or maybe an algae  outbreak of some kind starts . Well now your trying to fight that back all the while your corals suffer except for most softies.


I forgot to mention about adding a fish from a LFS. That's a dice game shoot at best., ich or jumpers or bullies non eaters you get idea.


Finally your back on track and everything is going great, so if you've been lucky enough to reach this point, how long did it take?


And maybe a more important question. How long did it last?

Mine has been a bit of a roller coaster for the last 4 years. I think part of the problem is that it's easy to get complacent when things are looking great. I know I focus more on maintenance when there's a visible problem that needs to be fixed. 

I'm on the roller coaster ride, as well. Front seat!  Don't think I've reached smooth sailing at any point, but I'm always striving for it!
