Introduction

I've been reef keeping for about 4 years. I have done well with my soft corals but never had any success with SPS. I have over time come to realise that you cannot rely on water changes alone to keep the chemistry in order. Now I am dosing Calk, Alk and Mag along with NoPoX to keep the nitrates down and eXcital to keep cyno at bay. I have a frag rack with 6 SPS frags and a couple of others in the tank itself. I hope to keep the frags going well and them place them in the tank when I am happy that I am keeping the water at a high enough quality to sustain them.

I have quite a few fish but my oride and joy is my Longhorn Cowfish, she is so inquisitive and spends as much time watching me as I do her.
