acros looking a bit brown
Yea and it still looking on the brown side after over a month. The brown is a more "healtly" looking borwn and around the base is getting some neon green pigments. How fast does this stuff color/grow normally?
Off the subject. ..something really cool i found out by accident with a flash light of mine. it has some blue leds that causes my color to glow at night when i shine it. The healthy part of the coral pretty much glows in the dark a bright green color. While the dead tissue doesnt glow at all. Everyhting topside of the coral its looking nice in this light. But what dosent glow is the bottoms of the branches. Hope the little fellow lives!

Hey there, nice looking tank! I'm very new to this and have been following your thread a bit. I'm starting a Biocube 29g myself this week as my first SW tank and i'm wondering if i could skate by with all the stock components for a tank setup similar to yours? OR if the parts you installed are absolutely necessary to get the best results. I'd really like to get parts that are recommended/ideal for this tank and am seeking advice as to what to get, skimmer, circulation, heater etc.. Again, i'm very new to this and will be starting a thread shortly (for some reason the site isn't allowing me to start a new one atm : / ) that i'll include pics in! but in the meantime I figured I get some feedback from someone who just set theirs up and anyone else following this thread :) I got my tank from a local shop nearby who has been very helpful so far (they're preparing water for me that should be ready mid-week), but I'd like to get some additional feedback from this forum which appears to be knowledgeable and trustworthy!
