4th July update 

fts

DSC_0132

 

Tank is doing good, other than a small patch where I am controlling gha outbreak. I am seeing a consistent pattern of gha and cyano everywhere there are two corals fighting (encrusting) for space. Tissue loss due to aggression leads to gha and cyano.

orange leptoseris, I used to think it’s organge only, but now it reveals bright green skin in between the mouths under high light, low light areas are all covered by mouths only, which is orange , so no green tints there

The goniopora is doing ok after the location change, blue tubs is growing faster than its neighbors

Fruit loops on the same island is slowly taking hold, after some recent wins over cyano

DSC_0186

 

 

Zoa island is out of all real estate , I am thinking if I should start fragging some la lakers and let the blondes grow more

On top sps island is also mostly occupied.

Here is my acro mounted on top of purple style

i am thinking of getting rid of all montipora digitata, it grows faster than everything else and also kills of most other sps

DSC_0168

my forest fire digitata is almost gone by this ,,, I may try growbig some of this in a pico, that will also serve a good case for testing the new 12v wave maker for pico (reef-pi), 

That’s all for now,

happy reefing

At the bottom , blue tubs have grown in number of heads 

 

DSC_0269

Cyphastrea is encrusting slowly 

DSC_0267

 

Jack o lantern is finally started to encrust on the rock. This is supposed to be an easy to keep coral, so I am assuming.. probably it’s not getting enough light . There’s also cyano issue in this rock

Trachy ... i think the red color for some reason pops more in the photo than in reality 

DSC_0327

the other rock at the bottom is zoa Garden .... kinda

Under blue

Normal light

Tank updates ..

major self induced disaster. I killer three sps few days back while trying to get rid of sporadic hair algae on them. I soaked them in cold di water (didn’t realize in the beginning ). I feel so stupid in retrospect. One of the sps I lost was the only frag I had , the rest two have other frags , leptoseris some how managed to survive . I have reglued other sps frags at the same place. This was a major tank mishap in past one year, and a hard reminder of paying attention to temperature and salinity (should have been obvious in retrospect)

You can notice the bleached montipora , I have dumped the acro

It used to look like this 😞

 

DSC_0263

 

Rest of the tank is doing ok. I am dealing with sporadic but persistent cyano issues on places where corals are fighting among each other , causing tissue necrosis

this acro is almost a mini colony now

29347242737_d664b53eed_b.jpg

 

Sps continue to grow on each other

Microgoniopora has grown significantly as well, I worry it will fight with the encrusting lepto soon , it will be interesting to see who wins

Other corals at th bottom of the tank , cyano and gha issue is present , but under control

Back of the tank , green and orange capricornis, gsp on the  wall and the green pociliopora that grows in any condition 🙂

Current FTS  (photos taken under heavy blue, then white balance corrected using Camera+ iphone app)

Zoa garden is already out of space, some of the la lakers have started to grow on the tank bottom,

44013125764_ecfecbee44_b.jpg

 

bubble coral has gotten humongous,

When I turn off my mp10, its inflates even more.. and the mouth is clearly visible (i am assuming this is ok)
