Thank you. 

 

I think I was able to save the coral and a couple of fish . I am currently in Houston so we will see if my efforts worked once I return home. 

Good luck.

Stupid reef tanks.

Uggh! Sorry for all the losses. I'm sure you can turn it around though. It's such a beautiful tank when it's beautiful :D!

I had the same thought yesterday. I came across 4 or 5 new threads on multiple sites with Dino issues.

I love jawfish. My tank is too shallow to keep one.

Mine were some of my favorites, but unfortunately they didn't make it. I would love to have more, but who knows

What’s the plan in the new set up? Something similar to the old or something totally different?

Not sure other than no dinos . 

 

Lighting will be 

1x 250w MH

2x 39w T5 

 

Thats all I know for now

Built a canopy to house the lighting as I hate having my retinas fried. The canopy is very low profile (6" in height) which makes reaching all areas of the tank difficult. So to make this possible I made the canopy float just above the top of the tank and have the ability to pivot out pf the way when I need in the tank.

That's serious lighting B) I really like how you did the canopy! Anything that makes maintenance easier is a win.

This was my thought lately as well. Though it’s hard to tell because a lot of folks haven’t confirmed Dino’s with a microscope. But I too have seen a bunch of these threads, as well as I heard at least two people at our local frag swap last weekend say that they were battling Dino’s.

Dang, sorry to hear about the dino disaster.

 

I like the new setup, though. And that light canopy is genius!

Stunning fish :wub:

 

I'm terrible at telling heniochus apart, which species are they?

They were labeled as diphreutes which is what I was looking for , but I fear 1 or possibly 2 of them are actually acuminatus which means they could be a problem. I will have to keep an eye on them and see how it goes.

Lovely bannerfish mate, saw some juveniles while diving off a pier down here in Sydney a few weeks ago, funny how often you see tropical fish down here.

They really are beautiful swimming against the larger corals behind them. 

 

Following along to see them grow

Ok so two of them are in fact acuminatus and have been nipping around the gorgs. They seem to be going for small algae tufts at the moment and not the coral polyps . Also they have not bothered any snails or my cocoworm yet so maybe there is hope. 

 

if they become an issue , I will re-home those two.

Pumps, plumbing, rock, sand, and Lighting are all new Tank and Sump are not. I ran a bleach bath on them followed with vinegar bath before putting it all together.
