A little brag after a few years

Hi guys really this is a brag
My tank has been stale for a few years I was in a verge of selling it, but thanks to Tony convinced me to keep it,
Around Christmas I lost a gorgeous birdnest of paradise...and 2 tricolor acros
They got white but it wasn't STN or RTN, they just dropped the zooxantallae
Because of starvation,
I have been dosing my own mix of
po4 and n03- reducer
The one below is the one I lost

Anyway, past is past ..
Now all the frags that they were idling and looking sad
Since I started
Po4 N03 dosing they are happy and growing ..
Don't mind the green bubbles I dosed last night and this will last a day or 2 unless I blow it with a turkey baster 😁

All of these were not looking good a few weeks ago... now😁 ...
The Red Dragon is taking off
Red Diablo from a single stem has quite a few of them,
The green Anacropora looking fantastic and actually I have to lower it a bit, the upper branches don't show the polyps but the one below that is shaded has great polyps extension,
Green Montipora Stellata has at least 1/2 inch growth
And so is the neon orange
The tricolor plating acro is showing color that didn't know it had 🙄
And the Chandelier
(It was given to me with that name) .. It has Red Corallites
that didn't had before
beside this ...I need a good camera or a new phone 😁😁😁

I think it's time to cut the eggcrate and make a few frags 😁
Sunset Monti and the Green and Red Favite or Coral of war, are looking fantastic

Thanks Cliff
It was an act of desperation, starting dosing, you know we always Aimed at 00pm of po4 and n03 , but because the light bioload that I have corals were starving
Below you see how much had to dose, after the reading Po4 checker, and the No3 was 000

More pics...
I had a few years I had a few polyps of the tricolor clover
But in the last 3-4 months this thing is getting out of control. 😀😁 in a good way,
I have 4 -5 rocks that are completely covered with polyps IMG_20210422_2038494.jpgIMG_20210422_2038105.jpgIMG_20210416_1838519.jpg

very nice Luigi. I've had different kinds of polyps over the years, some exploded and became a problem, others just died away. Can't explain the difference. Those ones I;'ve not personally had luck with.

Luigi thanks Andrew,
I've had this kind only, I'm not familiar with the other one
