@Mike_NY, @VIO and @ Tusi, just wait until I show you the video of the frags that you gave me in January and how they grew out. The unfortunate tank crash during the move was somewhat of a blessing in disguise because I finally had a chance to really rethink my rock work and provide more flow to the tank. I removed over a third of my rocks and I know have more of an appearance of corals growth versus rocks stacked on each other.

Either-way thank you all again for all the support during January! I'm in Morocco on vacation right now but I hope to get that video up and running soon.

I went back to the first post on MR which was 2:12 am December 2nd 10 years ago! I was in the freshwater fish hobby for about 4 years and my beloved 125 gallon tank leaked on me so I got an awesome 125 gallon reef ready tank. As soon as that happened, the reef tank addiction started ha I love it and taking a look at some of these progression pic's and video brought back some awesome memories I have to tell you! For anyone that has not started a Tank thread, I encourage you to start one, because even if you're a beginner, you will learn a lot along the way and documenting some of here on this forum is pretty cool.

I have 3 Radion G3 Pro’s with diffusers to help out with the spread. I also have one over the 60 cube. As I acclimate the Main display to higher par over the next few months, I’m going to consider adding an additional in the middle.
