Definitely going to agree that there is most likely some sort of disease in the tank. I saw your post on the IM 10 thread about low O2 levels, which wouldn't make sense since all of your corals are healthy. 

Thanks for checking in, at that point I was in full blown spam/panic modeomgomgomg

quick update got some shots of the acans coloring up. Colors are popping and everything seems pretty happy. My frog spawn seems to be retracted a bit and one zoa that was damaged in the bag has pretty much dissolved to nothingness. But other than that the corals are very solid. 

 

This us week is going to start off to be the start of some extended time away. I'll be at home for a few days at a time but from now till the end of October I'll be traveling almost every week with projects.

Thanks! Looking forward to these growing out and filling up the dead space on the rock.

Figured I would just continue the journal on this tank transition. Tank started to get neglected, crashed, moved, bubble out break and loss of most corals...….. Just after life settled down (business and family) I started to battle the bubble outbreak, kept up on WC's one of the corner seams sprung a slow leak and swelled the stand (ikea). Obviously, its been 2 years since my last post so all of that was fairly spread out except for the leak. That was last week. 

 

I used this little disaster to work my way through an upgrade. I always have liked the lagoon or shallow reef tanks, ever since AJ tsin's 47 gallon I have been on one for those types of reefs. I landed on either an IM 25 lagoon or the waterbox 28.2. Waterbox won!

Problem we had here is that it needed some new equipment and a new stand. So the orders and projects commenced.

Tanks been up for 2 weeks ish, didn't have much of a cycle at all since I used all seeded rock and rinsed the sand. Added some fish for waste and nutrients and will try and get some pictures of them soon enough. Added another AI prime HD for better light spread and am running Saxby's profile on a 12 hour cycle. One thing that I noticed is that this tank consumes WAY more top off water, thank the Lord for tunze ATO's :bowdown:

 

Now on to the fun stuff, don't have great pics yet as still using a filter-less iPhone but picked up some fruit loop zoas, a seasons greetings cap and yellow and red grafted WWC cap. Super pumped to get some more coral in this tank and start the growing process. 

 

Also..... Sorry about the dirty glass tank view:rant:

Thanks homie, if it's a fraction of your tank I'll be doing something!

Got a filter for my iPhone, they make a world of difference.

Sure thing! My camera was picking up all the particulate from scaping the diatoms off the glass so the focus should get way better as the water polishes up.
