    In November 2018 I decided to get rid of my radions and go MH/T5. Bought the Giesseman Spectra 72Ē.

    Some additional changes:
    Sold 4-MP40s and bought two maxspect Gyres XF-250.

    Also took down the 40G breeder sump and installed a 50G Rubbermaid stock tank. This gave me more footprint for reactors for carbon and GFO.

    In January 2018 I started experiencing a lot of SPS losses. Was running get GFO and carbon dosing. Lost quite a few frags.

    Fast forward a couple of weeks and a bunch of water changes, and everything seems to have stabilized. Had an ICP test ran just in case but nothing was raised as an issues aside from elevated nutrients.

    Have added quite a few frags so far and havenít experienced any more losses.

    The tank is awesome, and I love the color of the tank. 14K halides?
