    Hi everyone, I have been in the hobby for about 15 years with the same tank running. It started life in a 20L with 20 pounds of live rock and 20 pounds of live sand with a 175 watt 20k pendant. I always had high stocks of zoo's, mushies, and LPS with a couple of fish. Three years ago I finally...
