tank looks great, looks like your doing a good job. Now just add some more colorful zoas, acans, chalices and fish.

i agree, tank looks good looks like you have no alagae and to three corals loo good. now go out and spend your next two weeks pay checks and buy a crap load of corals and bring the tank to life.

Don't listed to them LOL. Slowly add corals and fish at a pace you're comfortable with. The tank must have cycled very nicely and everything looks very clean....almost sterile. That doesn't mean you have to rush to fill it up because there is a mini-cycle with each addition and you don't want to "tip the scale" so to speak.

The only thing I worry about is your flow. Are you getting enough flow from these 2 miniscule power heads. Your bioload is very small now but once you get more fish you want their 'crap' suspended in the water column and not sitting in some dead spots.

Look into Coralias if you are on a budget. The new ones are even smaller, more powerfull and draw very little electricity.

See if one of our vendors can cut you a deal on a set.

Its a 55g I upgraded from a biocube. Thanks for the input on the waterflow as I wasnt sure if I was getting enough flowage. What size Koralias do you suggest? Also, Ive been noticing some hair algae and slime algae recently so I researched and ordered a Phosban Phosphate Reactor. I hope that helps out a bit.

I have a 55g myself! I have a koralia 3 on mine which at first I thought it would be too much but its not and it seems to keep the algae away. I also have a koralia 1 but, I keep it off.so to answer your question either a koralia 3 or a combination of a 1 and 2.hope that helps.

Lots of rock! Notice on both side no room to clean your glass.

I ran a 55G for about 4 years as my first reef. Looking good. I think my favorite Skimmer for anything 55G - 75G would be the Remora C Pro w / Mag3. It did a fantastic job. 2 x Koralia 3's as suggested would work. If you can afford the lower end Tunze's they will last a very long time and be very reliable as well. Controllable pumps are expensive but may be an option. Your rock looks good. Slow and easy buy the nice $$$ stuff you want because you WILL fill it up eventually just take your time. Make sure to do lots of water changes religiously. I also had the Nova Extreme Pro over my 55 it did a great job.
