Background

Coming back to reefing after 17 years.

The nano tank provides the opportunity to reacquaint myself with the demands of reef-keeping, catch-up on the husbandry and technological advances and create an intricate and beautiful aquatic space without a massive investment in time, space and finance.

I'm relying on my earlier experience and the vast amount of knowledge available from cyber-space and the reef keeping community to guide me patiently towards a successful outcome in caring for my aquatic dependants.

Goniopora; is thriving. The female clown is trying to nest in it and I'm seeing the retraction reflex is diminishing.
Goniopora; polyps well extended, starting to look consistently well.
Dosing; I'm seeing spikes in Calcium (440 ppm) and magnesium (1560 ppm) which must be associated with the two additives - Reef Fusion (calcium) and TLF Magnesium (magnesium). I can't measure iron and

Feeding: target fed corals, zooanthids and mushrooms with reef roids. All but the goniopora reacted with a feeding response. Allowed the balance of the food to be suspended in the water when the retur
