Thanks! I actually don’t change my water very often - maybe once every 3-5 weeks. I hadn’t checked my alk in months and it dropped to 7.5 so I’ll up my dosage. But I agree with you, it still seems awfully low.Wow, looks awesome! 11mL sounds low to me; I dose more than that daily in my 22g. But your corals look healthy and growing. Do you do frequent water changes that replenish the Ca, Alk?
I like those frags on the tonga branch up top that you were worried was too high. Think of it as a much nicer alternative to a magnetic frag rack stuck on the back wall. The open water under that branch looks very cool and highlights the awesome branch itself.
Still weird about no luck with shrooms and zoas. Is your water too polished?
I mentioned it earlier.No, I mean the T5 bulbs - what color bulbs do you use?

Sorry, missed that. Thank you!I mentioned it earlier.
2 aqua blue and 2 coral plus.
I think changing the bulbs regularly is crucial. While I know it's not proven beyond reasonable doubt but I see correlation between old bulbs and cyano.
Also I can almost tell when my t5s are getting old where my alk consumption skow down. Which I think it had to do with spectrum shifting and coral slow down growth a bit.
Btw I did in the past kessil+led. I had the kessils mounted in the middle of the canopy with 2 t5 on each sides. I followed the design brs did on their brs 160.Can you show and describe some more detail about how you mounted the hybrid fixture? Your solution looks interesting. I’ve been considering adding a hybrid setup to my Kessil AP700’s but I’m stuck on the mounting part.
Tank looks great!
