Thanks guys !

I am seeing some good growth and color...

been really trying to keep alk more constant, testing / adjusting more frequently.

I also have a few pet projects underway in my grow out tank in the basement...

Thanks..
I try to keep my hands out of the tank as much as possible, other than to grab a clipping or two of the coral as they grow close to touching.
