    Thanks for all the great comments. Here's the setup...

    Basically I have 2x 250w Iwaski MH and 3x 110w VHO super actinic.

    Light cyle of VHO 12:00 pm - 10:30 pm and 2:00 pm - 10:00 pm for MH.

    Dose KW with medical doser from 12:00 am to 12:00 pm, approx quantity of 2 liters / night.

    Tank has skimmer running 24/7 and a wet/dry underneath in sump. Lack of access prevents me from removing wet/dry on
    this setup which will not be the case on my impending 220 setup. (It's running well so I don't want to screw this up by removing it)

    Water changes not as often as I should but about once a month or two of about 25%.

    Feed the fish every night once or twice.... feed the corals once a week or so...

    A good crop of grape caulerpa in that black mesh basket you see in the tank due to lack of access/room in the sump.... bad design on my part... won't happen again. Rotate the caulerpa once a week or so and prune back once a month or so.

    Water temp 78F - 81F, pH 7.90 - 8.15, salinity 1.024 - 1.025.

    Finally, having 3 reef-gurus at my disposal to pick their brains and enjoy their continual support and encouragement... namely Toutouche (Greg), reefmutt (Matt) and ABahn (Otto)... many thanks guys! :thumb:
