The dinos really set the growth back in my tank on the acros. It stalled probably 75% of the acro growth in the tank for easily the last 6 months. I am starting to see an uptick in growth because my alk is trending down on my graphs

it’s a lite load. I have lost some fish over the years and I just can’t find a source I am comfortable with buying from. I don’t have a qt set up. I do need to find some more tangs so I can move the powder blue over along with 2 anthias. Since the 3” monster chromis are now dead and gone I can actually add some anthias into the tank and once I catch the monster gorilla crab I have roaming I can also add some high end wrasses again. I am convinced he ate while they slept a Flame, Golden Rhomboid and a Lineatus

Update pic heavy. So they tank has taken a couple steps back about 3 months ago. I battled dinos most of this year when nitrates and Phos went to zero. I bumped both of those numbers up through dosing to 15 nitrates and .06 Phos when I checked a few weeks ago. Also I have only done 2 water changes this year. The first to remove some detritus and the second to remove chemiclean. The dinos never really disappeared Atleast I thought they were dinos. After talking to Nick at OLA he suggested that I dose chemiclean since he believed they were a hybrid. Well chemiclean took care of the issue. In the process of the Dino battle I lost probably 10 colonies most being wild ultra tenuis. So now we are back on track and the tank is recovering. Full tank shots first
Wow, tank is looking killer. That's a lot of growth since I saw it last year.

Thanks it’s had some setbacks that I can hopefully be proactive with so I don’t stall the growth in the tank again lol. Some of the stuff is growing really rapidly while others just aren’t growing as fast as I would have expected especially in the wilds. Another one that was unexpected was the growth on the Pink Floyd. It’s has put on 1/4” of base encrustation in a year. That’s it. Then on the other hand I have regrown a homewrecker from 1/8” 3 polyp nub to a multi branch 1.5”+ mini colony in 8 months or so
