Well, just placed an order for a walt disney and green slimer frag. I haven’t had a slimer yet in any of my tanks and I love the look of them. Also gonna test myself with the disney. So we’ll see!

Got a small order from cultivated reef. My first order with them and I noticed later I was only $12 short for free shipping. They got in contact with me and threw in a rainbow granulosa, thank you! 


Everything is adjusting to the new T5 bulbs. I only have them on for four hours and I lowered the leds. Im seeing less alk consumption after the change, im thinking its because the leds were turned down. still going to go slow, I don't want to burn anything. 
 


I think ill try Leptoseris on the side of this rock. Pretty low light and moderate flow.

New pic taken today of walt disney. Am I nuts or do I already see small encrusting growth on the bottom? Tissue around polyps look thicker too. Good signs I guess. Its still in lower light but I better pull it off the plug and mount it soon.

Well tank is going through some hair algae issues. Corals are healthy and growing so im not overly concerned. 
 

I am not happy with the Tunze refugium light. I like its shape and the fact that its waterproof. But the light output stinks. My cheato was doing better under a $40 amazon light. So my cheato growth stinks and my phosphate rose to .1, when the tank is usually .04. No feeding changes. 
 

 So now I am probably going to try a cheap grow bulb from the hardware store. 


EW!

I placed an order from reefcleaners to refresh my clean up crew. I included some crabs and a lettuce sea slug. Both of which I always avoided. 
 

Also have a bundle of corals coming in from TSA’s fourth of July auction. Mostly zoas to get my garden going. And couldn’t  resist another stick (pc rainbow). Super excited. But dang this hair algae. Need to get my refugium back up to par.

Nice! You got to try what you don’t know sometimes, and get out of the reef comfort zone and discover! Hope the new additions bring wonders. 
hahaha I’m the same with hermit crabs, what did you get?

Sorry about the algae, I’m dealing with a little bit of red one myself. 
BUT look at all those colors on the RFAs!!!😍

You have a nice selection! 
I know the hassle of checking and worrying about the extra shells for the crab and the risk of him eating snails are what is keeping me at bay, but they do look awesome!
