Well seeing that last pic of the scape, it looks a little better than I remember. If you ever DO add more liverock, if it's fully cured, it will not hurt anything. Don't be scared of bristle worms. Eunicids yes, but those aren't nearly as common as bristle worms.

Thats good to know about the Bristle worms. I did have the Eunicid worms though after IDing him. It was only 1 but i killed them all to be safe.

I did notice that the sale (Tropical Marin pro reef salt is very hard to get with them and they also never seem to have my eshopps filter bags either... O well, thats why I call before driving over an hour to get there.

Thanks, I am looking forward to see everything progress myself. Not a member on reef2reef... Should I be and R U? How is your tank going!

Here is a question... I think I have 2 small acro/sps crabs on my LA Lakers coral. I have pics but they are Iphone pics and I had to take at night when the lights were out. This pics are taken quickly when I put a flashlight on it and snaped a pic. There is no sign of dead area or white spots. Actualy its the opposite. Its doing great and these crabs have made there home in 2 small indentations or holes on the coral... I believe these to be good.

There is only one you can see in the pic, the other one is much smaller and likes to hide. I saw him once and that was it. The other guy comes out when the lights are out and walks around the LA Lakers coral like he owns it. LOL

That's cool. I have two crabs that live together in this one rock, but I'm not convinced they are reef safe. Glad to see your still up and running.

I have been sucking it out as well but not as agressive as I could be.

Some people dose phyto with clams but that I believe is more common with small clams 2" ish and such. Otherwise the parameters you listed are the main ones. I don't know if your running GFO but somethimes clams will react adversely with GFO being ran.. mainly people using GFO in quantity in reactors... When I had my clam just good light and good parameters kept him very happy.

All previous tanks retired.... New project planning in progress....

For prior comments regarding clams...

I have a maxima and derasa... I run chemipure elite and phosban gfo. Dose Phyto feast and oyster feast. The derasa is happy in my sand, maxima is peachy on the rocks. Both under center lighting of tank.

Sounds just like like what I'm running. I hope to keep these guys for a while! Thanks Tron!

Cool. It's really starting to fill up. Where did you get the frags?

I have been sucking it out as well but not as agressive as I could be.

I just had a first equipment failure lastnight. I noticed my tank temp at 89.3 and saw one of my 2 heaters was stuck on. I unplugged it and powered it off. Now I only have 1 heater and need another one. I had a Marineland and I am done with those... When I left this morning it was down to 88.1

What is the most reliable heater you all use?

Doesnt your Reef Keeper Elite with Net shut off your heater if it gets above a certain temp?

So it doesn't shut the power to the heater off at a higher temp? I thought it did that.

Oh never mind I re-read it.

LOL, yea it does, but it helps if I configure it! I guess I should be doing that this week so its just not a $700 thermometer.
