Advice: This tank is 5 months old ,all corals where grown in my old 46g bow and 72g bow .Ive been around fish tanks for over 18 years it takes time, most people cant understand how my tank looks the way it does after 5 months ,the pic of my tank is at 4 months ,Its a lot of hard work and prep time involved with setting up a reef tank there are no shortcuts , but all Marco rock was soaked in a vinager bath for 10 days then a muratic acid bath for 12 hours, then it was cured with some liverock in a rubbermaid bin ,also live sand was used and the Seachem reef salt was a big help no major algea outbreaks white sand and no algea on my rocks the only problem is Coralline Algae its all over everything I am not crazy about it but the more i scrape it the faster it grows ,
