How's the battle going this week? I bet they're getting close now!

 

Don't feel too bad about cable management! If it's all working fine, why rock the boat? 🙂 

 

We'll need some doggy updates too! 😄 

They've been creeping closer by the day. The GSP has been growing closer to the light more than toward the acro though.

Doggy has had a few health problems (worms and infections), but nothing that's not treatable.

Tunze Osmolator finally went kaput. Don't know what the problem is and I'm tired of trying to figure it out. 

Went ahead and picked up a duetto ATO that'll be coming in next week. I wanted to get the BRS 7lb calcium chloride bag too, but every time I go on it's always out of stock. I even got an email yesterday that it was back in stock... Just give me my elements!

Installed the new duetto ATO on wednesday, and it was a breeze to set up. Just plug in and that's it. I thought that the pump wouldn't be able to push water all the way up to the tank (about 4ft) but it sends it up there with no problem. I can't even tell when it goes off, the osmolator pump was 50 times louder.

I scraped all the gunk off the glass, and the water got pretty cloudy, so I'll take pictures tomorrow. Nothing out of the ordinary about any inhabitants, although my halloween hermit may have died, or he's just taking a while to molt.

Here's a dog pic to look at while waiting for more tank pics.

I'm comin' through with pics!

Here are some good looking corals

And some corals having a hard time. Acros on my rocks always have algae growing on the tips. I blow it off every day and recently I've been hitting it with peroxide. The cynarina has been shrinking as well, it's either too much flow or not enough light.

Progress on the war. GSP has invaded more northern territory, and has started flanking tbe acro from above. Acro has been slowly expanding its territory in all directions. 20200801_171514.thumb.jpg.a419d53d27d8730c6fa68800aa9ca7eb.jpg

And finally, a FTS for the front page.

Finally going to invest some time making acan island. I have tons of dead rock fragments lying around and found this good size chunk to mount all the acans on...... rock n roll......20200802_204029.thumb.jpg.97bc1145b1a237b33819af91c0b9c849.jpg

I'll finally take some stuff off the frag plugs too. I really hate the way frag plugs detract from the look of a tank. Makes it all look artificial. 

If I get through this by tonight I'll definitely post something here. Maybe things will feel like opening up too.

Except for this frag. Some new growth right on the plug, don't want to hurt it too bad.20200802_205719.thumb.jpg.61753920c48a2cb2e8116e0402a88ad4.jpg

Here are the pics someone asked for. I believe they wanted ones that "were taken at night with the flash on, and also make them extra shitty"

I think I delivered! These are my cynarina and symphyllia eating some dried phyto. The cynarina has been shrinking steadily, so I got him on a more steady solid food diet to supplement the light (or lack of light). I've been doing this for a few days and he's been looking slightly better since yesterday.
