    Looks great Matt. Looks like there is a lot of growth already on your frags.

    SWEET.

    Thanks guys.
    Yeah my older frags like that bird's nest have started to really branch out since I've been doing small weekly water changes. 8)

    I love it Matt! It looks great!

    So you feel that a small weekly water change does make a big difference?

    Very nice matt!
    Hey is that the 6500K iwasaki bulb that you are burning?
    It's always hard to tell color from a pic. The tank looks great. [smiley=2thumbsup.gif]

    Thanks.  :)
    It is the Iwasaki Aqua 50k bulb. (Misnomer - really like 13k) Nice bulb.

    In my case it was huge. Prior I was using NSW and dosing a lot, but not doing many water changes. I think some bad things were building up and some good things were depleted. Now I use salt mix and change out about 20% (5 gallons a week). In two weeks I saw growth on corals I hadn't seen growing. So I'm sticking to it.  ;) :)

    Very nice tank Matt. From the pic's the tank looks much bigger than a 20L.

    After getting into nano reefs i realized the importance of many smaller h2o changes...it seems to apply to all systems....sounds and looks good Matt.
