MIcoast's IM30L - one year tank recap pg 27!

Recommended Posts

Traded in some frags yesterday. Cleared just enough space to squeeze in this new scape piece that I was working on over the holidays. 

 

Actual coral placement - TBD. 

 

 

This was the mock-up, without the frag rack blocking the view.

do you trade to a LFS? 

Yup, quickest way for me to offload stuff.  Plus this guy gives me cash 💰. I’m happy with what he’s given me in price so far.

That really sucks, man. I think all the places around here keeps busy with tank service for doctor offices and such. I don’t see them move volumes. This guy travels a bit for frag swaps, so I’m guessing he moves some inventory through that.

Yeah, he’s the only one I’ve dealt with that offers cash. But I also give him really good deals 😂, cuz I rather he continues taking stuff I don’t have room for. 

 

 

On another note, tank has been doing pretty well re: Alk stability. I’ve been testing at least once a week, especially the day after waterchange. It’s been staying in the range of 7.5 - 8.0 dKh since the doser came online. Last night measured at 7.6.

SPS are growing steadily again. Red Planet is showing major color shift from brown to green and red after raising the light intensity. Oregon tort is starting to show a side branch coming off. Floyd and SSC (they’re wild frags but I just need something to reference them by) still have a lot to catch up on, but at least they show PE and growth again. 

This week, the light peaks midday at 60% across all channels except white (6%, i.e. 10% of other channels), and stay at peak for 2.5 hours. I would like to eventually get to 70% for 3.5-4 hours. 

Pics another time.
