Introduction

Hi every one I am new to this crazy, frustrating, expensive, stressful, challenging hobby but I am very pleased I stuck to this amazing and very rewarding hobby even though I love my tank sometimes I wonder what ever possessed me to join you all in this crazy frenzy, but I think I have finally got it under control and it has all been worth the stress and anxiety ...:)
For a newb I have been through so many ups and downs and have had my tank wiped out twice due to white spot.
Now let?s talk about my tank! It?s a max S-Series Red Sea Max 650 one plug system My tank is now 10 months old and looking good, coralline algae is finally growing strong and all my fish and coral are happy, water parameters are stable and I?m getting better at my water changes. I started my cycle with dead rock so I didn't get any hitchhikers however it took a lot of patience waiting for good algae, I mix my own salt with RO water and empty about 88L of water from my main tank once a week.
I feed my fish twice a day with prepared frozen foods, coral I feed about two to three time a week. I have the lights on for 10 hours and moon light on when lights go out. Lights are on a timer.
Cheers
