    I'm going to be the first to say that the approach is not novel. I'm not reinventing the wheel here and I'm surprised more aren't doing it, but there's a million ways to have a beautiful reef tank so I understand completely.

    Nutrient removal via GFO and carbon dosing and a LARGE skimmer. Foundation element replacement via the calcium reactor, plus additional trace elements. I think the CaRX is a key component though to this no water change method. Just based off my annual Triton results, I'm getting plenty of potassium, strontium, and iodine added without additionally supplementing them or testing for them often.

    Do you find the blue Linckia's challenging? They seem to do well for me at first and then die. I met a guy on RC that said after all these years he found out what they eat. ASTERINA STARFISH!?!

    Yes, the blue has survived for a year now and still looks healthy. My orange one withered away. I've noticed him snack on dead snails before. I've seen the post about eating asterinas but I haven't witnessed it myself.

    Either case, still not sure what it eats but my tank seems to be supplying it.

    My rainbow anemones were nothing in comparison so I got rid of them.

    I don't have any currently available. The one I do have is already sold.

    They do fetch quite the price so not for everyone I'd say. You'd have to be an anemone person to want to pay fair market on them.
