They were saying that he does keep a high nutrient tank. My nitrates have been creeping up... currently somewhere between 10ppm-25ppm. Phosphate still low .03 Corals responding well.

Im at the 8 week mark with the Radion G4, still going well. Growth is not the best that I ever had, but it's decent. Colors are not the best that I've ever had, but they're decent

I am but getting sick of the overly blue color. I need a lower K template to run.
