    1100 lt from Italy

    Hello!
    I write from Italy, I have a 1100-liter aquarium, and I recently adopted the filter algae. I have no problems with filamentous algae in the main tank, but being a habitat with non zooxanthellae, I need to feed constantly, and I adopted the philosophy of the aquarium without a skimmer ... I set up the filter with 4 105W CFL lamps (40 cm long and weighing about 2 kg each) 2700 6400 k and k. .. I hope you like my set-up.
    ps: sorry for my bad english

    Tell me, with the scrubber on the system, have you had to do any water changes?

    How much are you feeding?

    Are you feeding a liquid coral food?

    Do you have any fish in the system?

    I love NPS corals...so pretty

    I glean what the fishermen discard networks, in the ports of the French Riviera, do not choose anything, I collect what I find, if possible alive, and small fish that take with fishing rod

    Awesome! Can you post some updated pictures?

    Have you tested your Nitrates and Phosphates recently?

    I attended MACNA last year (since it was in my town) and as a club member I spent most of the time running around helping out, but I managed to attend Gary Parr's lecture on NPS tanks. He had great looking pics of his NPS corals, and while he didn't consider himself an NPS expert, he did maintain a system of his own and had many things to share about general husbandry of NPS. I was floored to find out that in addition to running all kinds of filtration, he also did nearly daily PWCs to keep nutrients in line.
