I see frags... on frags on frags on frags. Is it the clam? But the clam's been in there awhile, hasn't it? 🤔

 

It's not that turban snail, is it? 😂

clam is old, it's grown quite a bit lately too!  not snails, lol.

 

I swap my gyre 1K out for a gyre 2K (only half of one anyway), thought the bright orange rotor would give it away.  but then again, i'm a gear junkie...

I have a 1k and a 2k on my big tank. They work pretty well and I like the tandem setting so they can shove water back and forth

I’ll need to chat with you some, once I got the new 2K controller hooked up to both units. 
 

some weird feeding pics this morning, turn all pumps off to target feed these lps. 

big scoly doing well

little scoly is forming a new mouth; there’s some hope. This one only get a nice concentrated squirt of reef roid.

And here’s the blue light, less contorted pic of the two scoly.

I felt like setting it up was a little murky but once I somehow stumbled onto the right thing they work beautifully

Are you running UV? I feel like that might have done the most for me. I didn't even do a blackout or turn off my skimmer. I just added the UV, blew off 🤦🏽‍♂️ the rocks and corals any chance I could, and used a python detailing syphon to clean the sandbed, but just syphoned the water directly into my filter floss in the sump. I feel like I got off easy because of how bad it was, but ended up being a quick battle. 

 

How's the flow on 2k with just 1 side? I really wanted a gyre, but didn't plan ahead when I drilled my tank and built the support for my light. I don't have room in the center for a pump. I just got the Nero 3 yesterday, I was hoping it would fit...nope.

The flow from the 2K is great! I get the full tank moving @20%!!!  even when I’m using only just one rotor. 
 

I’ve been told to try UV, but haven’t felt like i needed one quite yet (aka lazy). dino perked back up last week a little bit, I think I brought my light back on to full power too soon, went back to 50% the last 3-4 days and it’s subsiding again. This time I’ll stay at 50% for the rest of this week.

I’ve been rather fascinated by how these fleshy LPS eat.

the little guy can now take mysis and small chunks of LRS into his newly formed mouth - even better sign.

the suns are recovering from being neglected.  Most likely will be back to feeding them heavily to avoid low nutrients issue in the future.

Found a damaged gold torch tentacle floating around while feeding the other night, seemed like a good experiment to feed it to the scoly, we shall see if the gold color can be transferred via ingestion.

also, seeing algae on the frag rack/plugs has never been more exciting when you’re trying to beat dino. 😅

not that funny - there may be more fragging happening in the future due to the impending move...😭.  We'll see.  I haven't put much thought into the tank move yet, until we passed the inspection stage. 

For those who hadn't followed the WB thread (the build that had zero progress), as I mentioned there, we're in the process of buying a new home.  I'd love to hear thoughts/ideas on how you'd move a fairly mature sps tank.

Thanks ladies. I guess that was a bit of a side joke since I was posting that pic at the same time @Cannedfish drops his masterpiece on Instagram (@blen_reef).

I know how you feel, completely. He has a masterful ability to make people feel inadequate. Even with his 1950s chair fabric.

One of these two tenuis is a “high end” coral.

had alk scare toward the end of last wk. due to reduced lighting to combat dino, the corals alk uptake slowed way down, alk shot up to 12.  So far I lost one and a half corals that I didn’t mind losing 😅. Still waiting to see a jumbo frag of the second one (which started RTN today) will survive. So here’s hoping those will be the end of it.

I’m most excited about the colors on this one.  So @FISHnChix, this one is why i put the other one in your box.
