Thanks all the easy stuff growing like weeds the acros tend to just sit not grow to much the tank is 30" deep so I'm wondering if it's time to bite the bullet and go with a 6' mh t5 fixture and a chiller

Also considering restarting this tank with no sand and way less fish so I can concentrate on sps but seems like s daunting task

Looking good! Why do you keep telling me it's not doing well. I did the BB a few times and always came back to sand. It's an aesthetic choice, but the sand does give extra filtration and I like wrasses too.

Thanks guys I think I'm a bit over stocked atm also I cut feeding to once a day and removed like 10 lbs of feather calpura from my fuge wondering if it's releasing something that's stunting my acros

The easy corals do great acros not so much have frags for over yr now just don't seem to do much
