Itll be fine.

How will you feed the tank?

Automated?

Yeah, auto feeder on IM30 but I don’t have anything that I can use to feed my frag tank😕

Not worrying about Tailspot or Pipefish (there are some pods and algae in there) but two tinny baby Clowns. 

I don’t know..... maybe one of those dissolving feeding crap? But not sure if it’s worth the risk?

Leaving for vaca later today. 

Check list:

5g ATO + additional 1g as backup set to fill ATO reservoir 730ml daily through DOS doser. 

Alk/Cal doser set and doubled checked. 

Flow/lights slightly dialed down (%10). 

Feeder set and tape-secured to make sure it stays in place. Feeding, twice per day. 

Skimmer dialed way down. So no overflow issues but it will add some additional gas exchange. 

No changes in filter media and no new equipment added. Filter floss removed. 

Decided to use Tetra Vacation auto feeder gel in my frag tank to keep two clowns alive. Hopefully, it won’t crush that tank. 

I can monitor basic parameters with my Apex while away but there is only so much that can be done from thousands of miles away. 

Will post pics from sandy beaches and hopefully some cute critters/fish of the sea. 

 

Added pics of the the little guys in frag tank, in case they won’t make it.

Enjoy the vacation, try not to worry about the tanks too much. I still haven't gone on vacation while having my reef, probably gonna be worried the whole time.

Thanks buddy. 🍺

Every time you leave your tank for extended period of time, disastrous scenarios play out in the back of your head. It isn’t the first time away from this tank but first time completely unattended and on full autopilot. 

Equipment failure is my only concern. 

But I sure will enjoy my vaca. 

A book, photography and  booze time b!tches!!😉

Next post from DR beaches🕶

Trash. Not at resort’ private beach but literally few yards from it (supposedly one of the top ***** resorts on the island). But that’s not the worst of it...... Wife and her girlfriend took a swim in what they though was a river ( ofcause both wasted). It wasn’t 🤫🤢

They swapped our leaking top floor rooms for VIP rooms so all is good at this point, but we really should have gone to Costarica or lagoons of Mexico. 

My buddy couldn’t keep up and is out cold. So drinkn solo watching wife’s regretful face.🥴

Naaaaa, this is a regular day of my life. 

Boring and full of feces. 

Dropping these weaklings tommorow and going solo. Gonna talk to some locals and make my own booze. 

12 “homo” drinks later and couple shots of local’ own finest, I stil can’t feel a buzz.

It’s not my kinda vaca. I hate these boring resorts. There used to be nice places on the island but IDK what has changed.... Perhaps bc we decided to try the other side of the island. No clue but this is a one, beautifully gift wrapped sh!thole.

Saw an old man in Borat bikini earlier..... very disturbing but at least the guy had a sense of humor.🤣
