Couple of really bad Nicrew LEDS, can also move it to where my Black Box Spills on my 34G

Have taken the light apart, nothing loose (hoped it was that simple) have contacted customer services as within warranty (obviously) just waiting for response...

Light is up and working again, something tripped the circuit at work. I have to split between two power strips (Work PC and Phone) so the light was on a different circuit (probably a good thing with the power consumption of these tanks) took me a good long while to find the circuit breakers..........

 

Pheeew

Things are ticking along nicely, have decided in the last couple of days that I will use this primarily as a place to keep my mushroom frags until they're ready to be attached to rock rubble and then be mounted onto frag plugs/discs. These (Blue Disco also don't do to well in the larger system 😞

Have also thrown some scraps of Gracilaria into the tank in the hopes that it will grow out

 

Pretty dull finish, sorry about that

Has anyone had any luck in housing RFA's under the Asta 20 LED? 

Considering taking this little thing home and playing with RFA's and Sexy Shrimp, Maybe a Pom Pom

Not specifically, but I've found that RFAs are pretty tolerant of various (typical reef) light intensities.

Decided to give SPS one final shot, the main section of each frag is currently in the 34G, but I did break off a tiny amount of each to see how they do

 

"Green Plating Monti"

"Purple" Stylophora

Well the little nub of Plating Montipora seems to be doing okay, but the Stylopora is now looking white at the tips? Doing the same in the Pico as it is in the 34g

Well now, just over a week to go. Good news is that I can have a Home Reef. My incessant whinging has paid off. The majority of the equipment will be reused

 

I am having a few issues with this system still so actually quite glad that this will finish next week. As the 27th is a Sunday i have decided that on the 25th (Friday) as my tank is in the office I will complete the transfer to the larger system and will use the Pico as my ATO container. My current container is making me slightly nervous but only needs to last a week. 

 

We were cloudy again this morning, interestingly the Zoas and Yuma's always look better after this so just letting it tick along
