Trying to figure out color correction on this phone

Started last year

Had been having horrible brown algae problems until I added CUC

 

Doing better now

I have never really had good luck keeping chaetomorpha

 

But going to try this. Already the algae has floated to the top and stopped spinning. But at least there is no messy cage to deal with like the Pax Bellum

I've ordered an RS XL 200 as a frag growout tank for SPS.  I'm sure Red Sea is still making it, they are out of stock nationwide online

 

I found a dead coral shelf on Marketplace

 

The sellers delivered it today from Nevada. They drove from Nevada to California to make the sale(and to keep it in one piece over shipping)

 

Cool frag rack, huh?

A snail must have pissed this polyp out

 

It's been curled up for 2 days now

 

All the other shy polyps are now open

 

I don't normally buy 1 polyp frags, so I don't know what it's going to do in the future

 

Time for a water change probably

 

Chewy has Reef Crystal buckets for $36. $20 bucks off 3 of them when you sign up for autoship.  Really signed up to see if I can lock in the price

 

Edit: It's opening now.  It was the most remarkable zoa I got from Cornbred. Who is pissing me off big time.  Ordered a Space Invader Pectinia from him, charged me, didn't send it, won't respond.  I placed a bid on another one, won't pay for it, to get his attention. Fn Miami Vice Coral Chad.

What is the difference between JF Altered Ego and JF Beach Bum?

IMO, for Beach bum - polyps are more green and the flesh is more golden.

Thanks

 

I'm going to put some thermoplastic in this as a base,

In the hole of this

 

 

And stick some Altered Ego on it

 

Probably has already been done.  But I want one

I would be interested in how this works out. Will follow your progress on this.

Since the lid is the same for the large and small

 

The 3D printed handle is now included on the small one 3181.  It is rigid and substantial.

 

The included silicone tubing is 3/4".  Which is fine.  Except the included Comline 2500 pump is not strong enough to self prime it

 

So I have had to manually manipulate the entire reactor, to get all the air out to prime it. The handle comes in handy for this

In the time between now and when I took pic of the Altered Ego

 

My Superman decided to go to war with it

That's an Ecotech XR15 G5 Blue

 

All whites and reds off

 

Blues 100%

 

UV 100%

 

Cyan 50%

 

Green 30%

 

When sunlight comes through the door when the lights are off, and hits them, all the corals look brown.  So there is that.

I'm currently building a Mr aqua 22 long. Its 36" long so it would cost me a fortune to light it with radions (2 XR15?). I have chosen ATI sunpower 4 bulb and ill probably buy some strips to supplement and give a slight shimmer.

I have two Icecap 1K gyres in the tank

 

I have one ramp up to 100% and the other to -100%

 

Alternately

 

It's that flow that pushed the Superman into the war zone
