I have it on a timer so it comes on at whatever color you last left, but I like to change it during the day/night.

Fair enough. I wonder if an ir blaster and a raspberry pi could automate all of that... hm...

Okay, so a few updates:

 

First, got a hairy mushroom. pretty large. might frag it. Additionally, noticed my maxi-mini carpet nem was super PO'd, and it's because one of the Bourneman nems crawled under the rock. I tried to loosen it with a powerhead before giving up - it struck back and seems much happier now.

 

My thought process was both nems could move, so if they were really ticked they'd let go.

Also got my grow light and put some chaeto in.

Finally, here's bananabutt:

I did a 1.5g water change today, and ordered a zoanthid pack. That's my preferred arch covering, so we'll see how that goes.

fed again tonight. Banabutt much less timid than the first few days. swimming all over.

 

 

Question - i have a 1.5" RBTA. should i add it to the mix to really make the tank uninhabitle for coral?

 

Zoa pack coming tomorrow. it is just assorted common zoas, so i'll be gluing right away to the arch.

Just an ebay seller. was one of the cheapest i could find. Would have preferred to buy from the classifieds here, but it seems livestock trading is nonexistent compared to what it was. Maybe it picks up in the summer?

Got the water station sort of put together. need to use up the last of my saltwater before i install the uniseals. Obviously need new DI resin, but i've been at 0 TDS so haven't been SUPER concerned.

I also need to get an outlet to mount to the back panel, and have a wifi outlet to put heaters on (so i can mix up and heat the saltwater before a change). Also need a longer waste line for the RODI.

So my FIL was a tree grafter and has pretty extensive gardens. He retired a year or two ago and has been eyeing my little setups. The new one will go to him,  along with some live rock and mixed water.

That is very sweet of you!

Is he going to join nano reef too?

and start a build thread?
