    The Cade is really in cruise mode now. Parameters are all quite stable with the Randy's Recipe dosing and still continuing with the Reef Plus & Trace dosing. Nothing to do just watch it all grow.
    I was down to a male and a female Chromis when the male had a fatal run-in with the nem. The poor old little female looked quite sad so off to the LFS and grabbed a new handful of Chromis.
    There was a bit of argy-bargy with the Clowns and the Flame Angel letting the new occupants know who owned what part of the tank, but by the evening they were all happy.
    So far I've been able to keep the tank cool without having to hook the chiller up yet. We've had a number of 30 deg days and the two PC fans at the back of the tank have managed to kept it spot on. It would be nice to get through the summer without running the chiller.

    Here's a happy snap of the new occupants enjoying their new digs.

    And here is a neat shot of some of my zoas . . . or is it an owl looking back at me? (love the new camera)

    Excuse my ignorance Dave but what's "Randy's Recipe dosing"?
    I will also have a search around the reefuge to see if i can find it also.
    Tank looks awesome, well done.

    The above link will tell you all about it. I can post a simplified printout of the 3 components that I mix up and use.
    It works really well and saves a shipload of money on store bought products like Reef Complete and Reef Carbonate that I use to use.
