Almost a 1.5 year update. The tank survived us being gone to the Caymans.
SPS is growing very well and all the equipment is staying in one piece.
A massive cyano breakout has occurred in the last 6 weeks along with other hair algae. I had it under control for quite a while then all the sudden it popped up. My maintenance didn't change so I'm confused what happened. I've never fed a lot and my nitrates when algae free was always under 1.
My main goal is to keep motivated to keep the tank running this summer. With our now 7 month kiddo, the tank gets a lot of neglect in testing.
