Default update an my greenhouse ops

all is doing great sytems are doing what they are designed to do glad to see summer come ,more free light!!! sps frags as well as colonies are doing great as I aproach my one year of operations . the vats stay clean and I dont have much maintenance to deal with, have some great coraline growth [mainly in shaded areas] and all kind of this and thats growing everywhere and with over 200 cromis damsels in the main sps vat they seem to keep the detritus moving . have added a rock curing vat it holds 600 lbs of rock and it has been curring for three weeks now

Very nice indeed. How many vats do you have total? What are you doing for calcium and alkalinity supplements? Wow 200 chromis is a lot. That must be amazing to watch them school together. Keep the photos coming!

Cool
Do you keep an indoor reef too or do you only have the greenhouse operation?
