Nice one Nick - it looks tidy, good skills

Pretty fish. Says Japan, don't recall seeing those while in Okinawa and diving - maybe not in that area. Also expensive. Don't see many of them so didn't know.

Thank you for the information. Learned something new today

Was this one of the acan munchers? Very beautiful fish. I would be torn between fish and acans...

Unfortunately, yes. And any angelfish will have the potential of LPS nipping. You have to be able to come up with a back up plan before you decide an angelfish in your reef with LPS.

I'm assuming anti-sync pulse is a stock feature of the 7095 multi-controller? I am running my 6105's through apex so I think I could do the same thing with a little programming. What does your pulse look like... duration ON/OFF, etc.?

The 6255 comes with its own controller. I bought the sync cable to connect the two pump controllers together. I think there's a couple modes on the controller that you can select. I have to check since I haven't touched it or looked at it for awhile.

What parameters do you keep your tank at in terms of calcium, magnesium, alkalinity, phosphate, etc etc?

Here's some update and pics from today.
I haven't really change anything to the tank other than putting the large Geo CA RX to replace the Schuran. Been running for about a month now. So far so good. Other than that, the tank has been running very stable. With my weekly water change, this tank is really the least headache and most stable I've set up.

The boss of angels. Actually a very well behaved fish. Doesn't bother any other fish.


The boss of the anthias.


The boss of tangs

What reef with angels without a Flame Angel. Added this about 3 months ago.


Royal Gramma(Blemish ). Got this from LA for free because they mis-shipped a package.


Gigantea.

Your tank is huge so I’d guess that helps but how does the flame angel interact with your corals if at all?

Thanks Jonny,
The flame angelfish cause no more damage than my other angelfish. However, I would advise against any kind of angelfish if you're keeping fleshy LPS like acans, acanthrophilia, brains, blasto, dendro, etc. If you want those LPS to thrive, don't put any angelfish period.
The angelfish might not peck at it at first, but if there's something wrong with the LPS and cause the flesh to recede or damaged, the angelfish will peck at it and that will be the end of it.
To me, the whole point of keeping a large tank was for the angelfish. I can live without those LPS and keep the LPS that I can. Stuff like hammer, torch, frogspawn, they don't go after.

The boss? That's a Blueline Angelfish. It's a pretty fish with the iridescent blue lines.
