    This may help. The main key is to keep your "big three" in check.

    Thanks I will have a really long read and tomorrow or the next day (because its 10.30 in Australia) I will post a detailed little video on my build thread about my current parameters and tank in relation to my SPS fails :) Hopefully I can get on top of it and get some SPS going well. Which really is my aim. They look SOOOOO GOOOODDD!!!!

    Remember what Yoda said OFK:

    Do or do not, there is no try.

    I was thinking FOWLR when I started my 125- ha ha, now 57 different coral species later- over 20 sps- those days are long gone!

    Welcome to the Dark Side!

    Yoda also said:

    "Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you at will"

    So be careful..... Lol.

    I too started with an 80g fowlr and now I have a 125g going sps dominated. (Slowly..... through trades and most generous reefers.)

    Definitely a good start and it looks to be happy where you placed it. Some will suggest starting them lower and work up but I never do even with LEDs.

    I have like 40 different sps (for now, will be adding more lol) in a tank that holds 52g of water.... I don't have a problem tho :) lol
