what do you want to know? I think the colors really started to shine when lowering my T5s down and letting the nutrients creep up. Stability has been the main thing. I rarely touch the tank these days.

Nice Walt Disney!
I have never seen a colony of Walt Disney. Itís always been frags.
What do you mean by lowering your t5s? Is that intensity or lowering the whole t5 fixture to increase intensity?
Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. I recently lowered my fixture too and noticed better growth.

Looks great! How many inches off the water did lower your T5's to?

Nice looking piece. I see a lot of frags that could make you rich... but glad you're letting it grow out.
