    solid fuge looks great. Any thought on the use of a DSB do your groves do ok w/out one? looks like there I just always see mangroves accompanied by DSB.

    Nice setup! That would make a pair of seahorses happy.

    Where'd the mangroves come from?

    i just threw it in there lol but i believe its the t5's (6700k x2)also intense pruning of the other macros allow my gracilaria to florish and extreme pruning of the Caulerpa .when i prun that stuff i leave next to nothing in there
