I'll even take before pics, which will depict its current condition.  Maybe next week. :unsure:

Looking forward to it

Here are a few shots of the uncleaned acrylic:

Love all the little critters! The red grape growing on the front panel is awesome. Is that a setosa peaking out from behind that Caulerpa meadow?

 

FTS? 😁

Good eye.

 

Yep, there are some corals too.  But unfortunately, I had an alkalinity drop which affected most of them.  I've been blindly dosing (based on observations) my top off water to compensate.  I know... everyone please don't follow that example.  However, the survivors seem to be recovering nicely.  I'm going to take alkalinity, calcium, magnesium, nitrate, and phosphate tests to see where I'm at (and post the results) prior to doing anything.

 

The tank is in a state of neglect (it's been at least a year since it's had a proper water change, or that I've cleaned the walls).  I'm actually a little fearful that I might disrupt the balance of this neglect. :unsure:  But I promise to get a proper FTS prior to me cleaning it up.  I hope to transform this tank into something a little more attractive, and will try to document the effort.

 

The cardinalfish and clownfish seem to be doing well and have been breeding regularly.  I don't wish to disturb them too much when there are eggs, or the male cardinalfish is holding babies.  Currently, there are clownfish eggs.  And while I don't intend to try to save any this time, I really don't want to test just how aggressively they might try to protect them.

 

I like the Caulerpa prolifera, but it has taken over the sand bed and has even taken hold of some of the rocks.  I really need to get it off the rock.  I'll keep a bunch of it, but the majority will end up being pitched.

Sorry, dirty acrylic means poor picture quality.  The eggs are about to hatch, as you can see their reflective eyes.  While that's exciting, I don't have an active rotifer culture to try to raise them.

 

I still owe you all a FTS.  I'll try to get to that this week.
