    These are the corals we have been collecting in the PSAS club tank. These will all be given away at the Bob Moore.

    Thanks. The tank took a little time to mature but its actually doing better than my display right now. For water changes, I pull 20 gal from my display once a week and replace that with fresh mixed. I take the 20gal "waste" from the display and use that for a water change in the clubs tank. It's not ideal I suppose but that means the club tank gets a 30% water change every week with quality water. I also dont have to worry about setting up a seperate tank to mix replacement water and i dont have to pay for salt for the club's water. It probably has a moderate nutrient load but I track the main chem levels (alk, CA, MG) in my display closely because its heavy with SPS. I dont allow nuisance algea to get a foothold so i know the nutrients are low. I can feed the one fish and corals aggressively in the club tank and not worry about much nuisance algea because the water gets changed out frequently. I haven't harvested algea from the refugium since the tank was started. It has grown in a little and provides a region for critters to procreate but there evidently isn't the nutrient load to allow for any significant algea growth.

    Sounds like a awesome way to recycle and still keep a healthy environment for the psas stuff.
    It works great as far as Ican see

    The PSAS tank is officially now cycling with fresh water. It's a little sad. It served us well this year, but it was time to take all the cleaning crew out and give them a new home. All the coral found a new home last weekend. Now it's time to sterilize it and prepare it to be moved for the next group to take ownership.
