Other than high temps. Tank was looking good today. Noticed some of my millepora have started encrusting. Steady as she goes

Caught the BTA crawling towards a powerhead today. Turned the flow off and placed it on a rock front and centre. Last chance before it gets banished to the fuge. 
 

Turned flow and return back on and went upstairs, then I heard my ATO dry alarm... which is weird because I added 3G of freshwater to the reservoir today. 
 

well it turns out that for whatever reason the main drain wasn’t draining and my backup drain didn’t work either!!! The sump drained and the ATO dumped 3 gallons of freshwater into the system. I caught it seconds before the tank started overflowing . Really not sure how both drains didn’t work. But I Fully opened the gate valve for now. Will inspect tomorrow... frustrating. Hope all corals are okay after the 3 gallons of fresh we’re dumped.

Not much to update. I’ve noticed some explosive encrusting growth from my milleporas. Chaeto is just falling apart in my fuge so I need to try a new macro that roots. Caulerpa perhaps.

Noticed some baby aiptasia popping up. Added two peppermint shrimp today to take care of the bastards.

 

also added a cleaner shrimp for fun.

Peppermint shrimp still haven’t touched the aiptasia but that was sort of expected. Hopefully they find them one day soon.

 

nothing really to report. New frags tomorrow!

First try to 'weaken' the aiptasia with a shot of vinegar, I have good experiences with that. It's then easier for the shrimp to grab/eat the aiptasia.

I’ve tried boiling water, vinegar, joes juice, lemon juice, super glue. The peppermints are my last chance lol.

My stupid BTA has crawled off its rock when big mama moved the sand out of the way. It’s not on the main rock and has stung a Goni..... so annoying. Now I have to dismantle the rocks to take it out.

 

I noticed an explosion in coraline today. Good sign.

They call it a flame tip, under white lights it looks like any other RBTA

Officially out of room for frags.... debating on getting rid of my euphyllia and the one gorgonian frag I have to make room... 

 

 

oh and my lawnmower blenny met its maker.... had a bad habit of going inside the powerheads during feed mode.....
