    Hello everyone!
    I needed a spot to post pics and updates for my 32 so here we are.
    So far, my upgrades are;
    Refugium in the back with LED light, A seneye reef monitor, and a Steves LEDs upgrade with mini blufish controller & iridescent booster.

    Here is a pic with the original LEDs a few weeks after I first filled it with water.

    And here it is today with the Steves LEDs upgrade. (Only at 31%, still acclimating.)

    One of my unknown acans. (Already getting some of its color back under the better LEDs)

    And here is my latest haul from BattleCorals! (Adam is a super awesome guy and I HIGHLY recomend his battleboxs).
    Starting at the top left and reading like a book;
    Aware wolf, Shaggy pink milli, Teen wolf, Strawberry lemonade, Garf bonsai, Fox flame, Snipers blue, Fireball milli, Leprechaun purgitory, Shades of fall, and Copps calacali.

    Sorry for the poor phone pics, i have a sony a5100 that should take decent pics but im getting a lot of horizontal lines under the LEDs that show up in the pics. I havnt been able to figure out how to get good pics with it yet, but i know its capable of it.

    Thanks for looking!
    Any comments, opinions, or insults are all welcome :-D

    Sweet!!! I've scored some WWC ebay corals too, so I'll be looking forward to seeing how yours will be doing! Looks good so far. I found that my corals look a little different from the pics as well. They're quite a bit smaller than they looked, but still decent sized!

    Had to move the mummy eye and miami vice chalices yesterday. They just dont seem to care for the new LEDs. Im only up to 45% in my acclimation and they were starting to bleach out. Took some par readings with my seneye and was getting 140 at the miami and 143 at the mummy eye.
    Ive heard of chalices in much higher par, but these really didnt like it.
