That is crazy huge! I would definitely add tiles to the bottom to keep them on. That would make them much easier to move, and remove for fragging.

quick update , seeing colour pick up in all corals. Corals at the back of the tank are fairing well , a couple corals directly in the middle of the tank are colouring up but also pastelish in colour, so I'm thinking I may have to drop my insane midday to 3 hours from 4. A wild colony I place in three weeks ago has already grown onto its host rock, so growth is happening. All the wild colonies have held their original colour, one of them is more colourful than when I bought it, but I think too much light may be causing this. As a casting I'm heading for a 3 hour peak. Also moving my water temp down from a peak of 26.3 to 26. Will grab some photos with the SLR to start documenting growth and colour of each coral.

Increase feeding, maybe dose phosphate and nitrate if low.

Yeh I never test n03 / 4 , I usually watch my cheato growth and glass as an indicator. if any other corals lighten up I'll up the feeding as u suggest.

I do the same thing, if I don’t have to clean my glass for over 4/5 days I dose in my top off. I also took my skimmer offline a few months ago. The cheato and corals seems to just soak up all the nutrients and I rarely get a positive on my phosphate test. Right now you have a small load and are blasting the light. I always compare it to a car, if you stomp the accelator and the fuel volume is low you’ll just stall, or bleach in this case.
