Well shoot not too much to update the lfs hasnt had anything worth a crap for a little bit.. kinda cool though since I stabilized my doser I have seen some good growth on all my corals, but I am excited about this little guy. I tried 2 other sps and they died but this thing that I bought for 10 bucks is growing!! The little nub on top wasnt there when I bought it a couple months ago.😁  not much growth but makes me excited lol.. happy Friday reefers!!!

Well just did my last wc on my biocube.. kinda sad I loved this tank but now that I have my reefer and have the last fish in my biocube for quatrenine there is no need for it... so in a few weeks ,time to take her down😥... but on a bright note I found a stupid royal gramma..  they are super common but for some reason none of the lfs had one for that last few months.. oh got a new coral too..

Thanks!!! Man what a pain learning how to post to YouTube on a phone lol... got it figured out and managed a wc on this tank today too.. oh and got to put a coat of linn seed oil on our planter boxes today. Feeling pretty accomplished today 🤣... looks bare now bc as the wife says now  her "frags "(succulents)are pulled out of the way while the wood soaks up the oil..

I thought it sounded more like a “corner of the counter top into a butt cheek” type situation.

Well made it back after 4 days away and well shoot tank didnt crash so that's a bonus!!!

 

Got home and did some testing since it's been awhile.. any one else feel like a mad scientist while testing water??🤣

 

So all my params were where I like them (had to dose mag up from 1290 to 1330) except for my phosphate.  Always reading zero. I really want to bump that up a little and see how the corals respond but not sure how. Maybe increase feeding a little?? I feed half cube of mysis every third day and pellets every day.. oh and about a half teaspoon of reef roids every couple days...

So this week I learned an invaluable lesson.. it's a good idea to check out your reef when the lights are off( I'm usually not home when the lights are off , or I'm asleep).. in doing so I realized something was going on with my corrline alagae.  Looks like its bleaching or getting eaten... with the help of fellow nano reefers I think it's those little white starfish that's eating it up... so I went to town plucking those little guys out. Probably pulled 20 or so.. 😃.. going to post up some photos so I can see if the corrline will bounce back.

 

Oh and I had my flame hawk jumped out yesterday 😪.. but on the bright side my wife found him on the ground still alive and saved him.. funny story wife calls me and says "your fish is on the ground!!! What do I do!!!!".. I respond well pick it up and throw it back in knuckle head 🤦‍♂️.. she did later explain she didnt know if touching it with her hands would hurt it and she didnt know if I wanted it to go in the QT or back in the reefer...
