Here are some photographic representations.

Beautiful! I love the clam. What equipment are you running on it?

Thanks. I got the clam at the Lake Erie Frag Fest a couple months ago.

As far as equipment, the tank originally had the power compact hood. I upgraded to the Pro LED hood around 5 months ago. It is very bright and caused some bleaching on my frog spawn wall and golden aussie torch. The frogspawn is pretty much back to normal but the aussie torch is still pretty white.

I replaced the stock media basket with the Intank basket. I run filter floss, Chemi-pure, and Chaeto with the LED fuge light. I have 2 Hydor Koralia 240s in addition to the 2 stock pumps. All 4 are hooked to a Wavemaster pro.

Ahh ok I see. I really want to upgrade mine to the LEDs but I am worried it might be too powerful. I'm deciding whether to get Koralia 240s or the 425s. Do the 240s give you enough flow?

Yeah, I actually originally got a 425 but it was blowing sand all over the place no matter how I angled it so I'm using it in a bigger tank now.

My hammer coral tortured some of my zoanthids so I moved it to the bottom right corner of the tank. I have also recently ordered the aquamaxx hob-1. Perhaps this will help with my cyano issues.

Nice tank...did you have pumps off during the video because the flow seems nearly nonexistent?
Anyhow, I'm upgrading my NC 28 CF light to 54 watts of LED--how many watts is your pro hood? I believe mine will be 18 3 watt leds...it's coming with a dimmer--did you not acclimate the corals to the light by dimming or wasn't that an option? I guess my main question is if you had to acclimate the corals to the light, how would you do it if you did it all over again to avoid stress/ bleaching issues...

thanks...

Yeah, there is plenty of flow I think I filmed that after feeding when the wavemaker was paused. The pro hood is 89 watts. It would have been ideal if it had a dimmer but it does not. I'm not really sure what else I could have done to acclimate them as they are both already at the bottom of the tank. It was just those 2 euphyllia that were affected, my hammer which was at the top of the tank at the time was fine.

I utilze 500gph powerheads on a wavemaker in my 28G JBJ and it cleared up the cyano no problem, well w/ additional help from a GAC / GFO reactor. But no skimmer and nothing in the bACK except sponge.

That's a good idea. I probably don't have as much flow on my sand bed the power heads are all directed level to upwards. Maybe I will try hitting the sand bed with more flow.
