I have had a Magnet rust and destroyed a couple thousand $ of SPS and coral..

Ferric or neodymium, genuinely curious sorry, that's really horrible. The structure of neodymium alloy is so different compared to normal iron magnets, really surprising... Hmm, well they're still multi-coated, but I suppose I'll want to be extra cautious =/

I know but they’re living symbiotically with two others that are the same size... 😩

 

hence the “kraken” name comes to play. Wish I had a goby but I’ll stick with big wurm 0B9CBF05-E8DD-44A2-B127-1B729518D5AD.jpeg.a4881a85214db889b1bf9bd9c64da788.jpeg

 

thats what I get for using live rock from my sump.

I wasn’t too sure it wasn’t something I put in there by the time I found out, it was too late.

Awesome news UPS sucks!

@asting I got you brotha!

 

maybe i should put more bubble wrap in the box even though I couldn’t fit any more inside it. 🤦‍♂️ I’m glad I take pre shipping pictures so there’s no excuse that I didn’t put enough packing 

 

Lovely day of disputing damage claims with good ole UPS.

 

 

Here is a shroom..

that may be a blessing if it's a slow grower/slow to adapt.

Quite possible 🤔

I did kind of throw everything in at once 😂 

 

but it seems to be liking the every other day water change. The only thing That i changed was salt mix from reef crystals over to brightwell neomarine. (Love this stuff)

I like it a lot better but I think it’s too early to tell. The 7.5kh is what sold me on it

Yeah, I've been considering going 50-50 on IO and Reef Crystals because of that, but my alk is frozen at 11, never goes up, never drops <___>

So I’m liking the daily water changes I have it set to change out 1/2 a gallon. I have been waiting to catch it in action.

Hopefully I’ll be lucky today

@asting Stop giving me ideas I have an dosing machine. But then i would have to make a better cabinet or something to hide it in..🤔

 

im glad UPS didn’t have a field day with the new tank. I think it’s those fragile stickers that say field goal 🥅 on them.

It’s not a permanent decoration, it was a sales pitch.. but thinking about it now I do want one for the 2.5

 

i do want to see it covered with some GSP or some other encrusting type coral.🤔

ok so it is mother’s day tomorrow and the ole lady hasn’t noticed her gift attached to the fridge EA8CAE93-609B-481F-9876-FC7FD9F31A88.thumb.jpeg.7a37305a2890a34999b47b50077efea1.jpeg

i offered her a night off tonight so she could go out with friends. 

 

While me and the boy did a 20% WC on the 160. (I really need to setup the AWC for it.) we learned the importance of WC’s  lol 😂

The best place to hide something is in plain sight, just pretend  it was always there for a while and wait for the OMG moment XD

Why not do some of the armored fish species? Not like the catfish, but the behemoths which had massive calcium-skeletons to allow them to go back and forth into fresh and saltwater by cannibalizing their own skeleton's elements. Seems on theme, and they look awesome to boot. Like Dunkleosteus.

Nice acrylic work! I'm interested in seeing some more dinos - I'll be looking out

 

Good to see some one else with cespitularia, where did you get yours from? I love that the stuff is a slow grower - no fear of it going full pom pom style take over. Have your polyps opened any more? Mine are almost always mostly closed like that.
