    Is this a 100% NPS tank? I have had a few questions about anyone running an NPS algae scrubber.

    Yes. Or, better, white gorgonians are zoox. bearing but they can live very well also without them; without strong light they need more feeding.

    ehm.. sorry, I'm writing on behalf of my friend Stefano because he doesn't have much time at the moment.

    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.
