Wow! Sweet tank! There's a lot going on in there. I like the anemone section in the back, the palythoa mountain, the SPS rock, the xenia wall, and of course the blue purple clam. Not to mention the DSB! Are you getting any denitrification with it?

Tank looks great for no water changes!!

Beautiful Zoa rock, I'm trying to do the same thing. Does any one seem to "win" and take over more after the others established their location?

Yes... that brown “gold” one is crazy and winning. I’m currently planning to kill them out with kalk paste

Tank looks great. I'm still wrapping my head around how you guys do no water changes. The results speak for themselves, but having reefed for 20+ years, it just blows my mind how far we've come.
I still do water changes. "Dilution is the solution" still holds true in my mind. :)
Keep it up!

I got a really low bio load ha just 13 fish in a 150 gal system. I got all sort of nutrient export and also the Ca reactor to feed elements back. Doing 10% water change just diluted 10% waste and u still got that 90% in there, plus u fluctuated the system a bit. I’m just trying out and see how far I can go ha
