  1. I havent updated in a few months. The display is doing really well. Everything continues to grow. Some of my sps that were doing much before have started to take off and I'm getting some good colors across the board. One of my friends broke down his tank while hes moving so now my frag tank is pretty full and more like a 2nd display I'm going to turn the nem biocube into more of a mixed reef. I'll add some mushrooms and other softies
  2. I've had this guy for over 6 years. Just noticed the purple coming in last night.
  3. The display is doing well. My alk and calcium consumption is steadily increasing. The frag tank is running. I have a few peices in it. But not confident enough to move everything over yet. I still need to work on the water change station, but have been pretty lazy.
  4. I've spent time each day over the last week or so taking pics of my tank and everything else. It started as wanting to just take better pics of my tank, but right now it's my least favorite thing to photograph( I'd say landscape photos have been my favorite). So I guess im about to dive into another not soo cheap hobby. I did manage to take a couple pics I think turned out pretty well( to be honest though other get just as good pics with their cell phones)
  5. I put up this decal(wall sticker?) and a runner between the tanks. I ordered the hanging kits for my leds for the frag tank on 6-23 with 2 day shipping. I recieved them yesterday and was missing one of the peices needed. So I'm sure itll be at least another week or so until they are up. As far as my display goes almost everything is doing well. My jellybean chalice is on it's way out and I dont think ill be able to save it. I'm almost certain it's bacterial infection, but I'm losing the battle with it. Btw the tropic marin directions use a fortnight a as time measurement and I think is
  6. I am still struggling with taking accurate photos. I had an easier time under leds. Without the polyp labs filter it looks terrible. With it some stuff looks over saturated. I've never really gotten good at taking pics my dslr. I've taken about 1000 over the last couple of days. A couple even came out decent. There will be alot more pics to come as I improve.
  7. I have not used this to treat dino. I used it on bubble algea. It took care of what I could see in about 3 weeks. I stopped treatment. About 9 months later I had some pop back up on same rock. I think I just didnt dose long enough.
  8. The sinks in. The room is a huge mess. I'll work on doors or a removable front panel in the near future. I sill need to do something with the outlet. I havent had anyone over yet to help with that. It's a two hole sink. I used a single hole faucet and put a bulkhead and fitting as a placeholder for now. I'll add a tap for rodi water in the future. The faucet itself was pretty cheap($63) on amazon. It has built in leds. My wife wants it in the kitchen and the kids want it in their bathroom. I moved my mermaid lamp back in the fishroom. I feel its becoming a fish room now instead o
  9. The frag leaked during testing. And again on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th test. The 1in bulkheads in the overflow box are very thin. I did not want to overtighten them. I I changed out the ball valve on my brute and failed its first leak test too After several towels and several days everything has been running leak free I need to take my apex off my display and replace it with an apex lite I have. I need the vdm ports to run lights for the frag tank. My display itself it doing well. My nutrients are really starting to drop. I think all that extra rock is doing its job or the coral using
  10. Set it and forget it! What bulb combo?
  11. I worked on my water change station and frag tank. Neither completed but both started. I going to have one of my friends come over and help with the plumbing and move the outlet for the water change station. I'm waiting on the plumbing from brs to finish the frag tank.
