CNC Sps growout.. first month thread


Recommended Posts

well, it is officially underway!! This thread will be used to enter in your baseline conditions and initial measurements.

 

Post a picture with a ruler immediately behind your frag. you can post a couple shots if your frag is wide or lopsided. you may want to also take a picture measuring the width.

 

So people have an idea of your system, please include the following:

 

1. total system volume

2. what kind of lighting

3. how you keep alk and cal stable

4. how old your tank is

5. rate your tank stability on a 1-10 scale.

 

cheers!

OK, I’ll start:

My ruler is clear, so it’s easier to read if I place it in front of the coral. I'm measuring height from the top of the frag plug.  I’m also measuring in cm to make the math easier.

Front:

These photos were shot on my iPhone with clip-on orange filter, so color isn’t exact. Here’s a shot without the filter:

I'll try to get pics tomorrow. I've been busy with work and house and I'm a mechanic so I'm always covered in grease so I try to stay out of the tanks. We also had a cat turn off power to one tank last night and it was 64 degrees this morning. No I don't heat the house till extra layers of clothes don't help. That's why I run 100 watt heater in 20 gallon tanks. Everything seems ok but only time will tell.

3. Weekly water changes of 5-6 gallons plus manual dosing off alk twice daily and calcium when I remember/have time.

4. Tank is a little over a year old, maybe 13-14 months. With one break down and move about 7 months ago or so.

5. Tank stability is maybe a 5
