Good to see you here Lasse.
I have not seen your tank in a long time and now I see it has changed drastically... it looks amazing.
Those clams are huge.

Interesting experiment with the lower light intensity and the result in changing pH and KH consumption.
Many factors play in this equation, but I believe that there exists something as too much light.
I believe Dana Riddle had some thought about this too.

@OZ_SPS - your welcome

I have decided to move my largest clam rather soon. Probably next week It has shown to be a great warrior - fighting both hard and soft corals. But soon - it will come too close to my euphyllia colony and I´m not sure it will manage that. I have figured out a good spot in the temporary aquarium. It is now near 4 years since I buy it as 2" clam and I hope it will grow much more and finally be placed in the 400,000 L tank in the new Aquarium

This coral was going south, slowly but steady. I decide to move my file fish from the aquarium and it is slowly repair itself. If it was because the filefish annoyed it or not - I do not know. There have been a general improvement in the aquarium since I get down in light intensity too.

Hrmmm, interesting. Could you share your new light program?
What has been the biggest improvement that you've seen?


Cheers, Tony

Simply amazing.

Is that a little Sun Coral in the first pic?

Tony
Yes. I have set some at that place - they start to decline but suddenly - the three polyps that was left start to grow again. Inside a module (behind this three polyps that you se) there is one larger colony and deep down the rubbles to the left - there is some polyps too

I use the same as before - I only cut down the max power to 75 %. I use sessional lighting and it will go down further - down to around 60 % of max power. Here is my curve for red, blue, green, royal blue and 450 nm.

The curve for 4500, 6500 and 8000 K

and the curve for 425 nm (moon light too)

1618656045939.png

All of the curves is max to 75 % through the general settings

and seasonal lighting

How long did you have the clam?

Thanks very much!
Have you taken any Par measurements?
