Take care of yourself today.  Your beautiful tank can wait a day.  You are doing a lot of water moving right now with the fish in quarantine.

Yeah. And I have other non-aquatic pets to tend to, too. I need to TTM my lionfish in QT today, so I'll be devoting most of my time to that. If I have extra time, I'll just clean the filter of the nano & replace the media, then do a proper WC tomorrow. 👍

 

From what I've observed in the past, a few extra days of stalling won't affect the overall health of the tank too much. Issues only start to arise beyond the 2.5 week mark.

Well, I managed to squeeze in a bit of time in the morning to clean out the filter. But I did a lot of other work with the other animals, so I'm dead exhausted. I still have to TTM my lionfish before 4pm, so I have some downtime to rest atm. 

 

But I think I'll be pushing the WC of this tank tomorrow because I don't want to stress my ankle joint - which had began to flare up with mild pain during mid-morning. 🤔

 

Tank is okay. New zoas are doing well, although the rainbow yoda is a bit sulky. Geralt 🦀 knocked over the duncan so I had to shift it and *plant the coral properly in the sandbed. 🙄

 

I'll just keep up with dosing the tank as usual today. 👍

Fed some of the larger LPS some krill today. Pickle was not too thrilled about the chunk of shrimp in her home, but settled down once the brain coral ingested it. 😅

I also completed my weekly WC. Tank's quite clean so far, and I'm thinking it's time to dose some live pods and rotifers to preserve the microfaunal diversity. Might also uproot some macro from the fuge of my 60G and give it a good swish in this tank to dislodge some critters. Still thinking about it. 🤔

Duncan from above - apologies if the pic is too bright. I was messing with the lighting and forgot to dial down the whites. 😅

Tank is still waking up. A lot of polyps remain retracted:

 

20220517_095938.thumb.jpg.3ff87c9d3dd56f0f3bce96d19b88f85e.jpg

 

But I noticed one of my Devil's Armor polyps has developed a streak on purple on it. Not sure how. 🤷‍♀️

Yuma pile from above - had to play around with angles in this shot, and even then I couldn't capture their true colors. ☹

New zoas have all opened up. Just waiting for them to grow out, and for the ledge to be encrusted in coralline:

I have a special treat for all of you. :happy:

 

I decided to take some pics under actinics - full 100% blues, 0% whites - through the orange lens of a pair of coral viewing glasses. 😊

 

So here's a bit of colorful chaos for all of you. 🌺

Still growing out. We have a few stubborn Gold Mauls today that refused to open up fully. 😅

My phone can't seem to process the ripples on the pavona, so it comes out smudged/smeared instead of smooth. Tried adjusting it in Lightshop to no avail. ☹

Jack-O-Lantern lepto:

 

20220518_173438.thumb.jpg.44491580885233fc561eebd5632bf3ad.jpg

 

Green leptastrea has made a full comeback. A tiny part at the edge remains dead, but I *think it is possible for the coral to encrust over this area again, because it re-encrusted over the other dead parts:

 

20220518_173454.thumb.jpg.768d47d5658863087ef781b06413ce24.jpg

Glass is filthy, hence the 'duller' colors today. It's like trying to take pics through a brown lens instead of a yellow one. 😕

 

20220519_175403.thumb.jpg.54fd42c510f61116a5a64b5471d4524e.jpg

 

Pickle. 🥰

Definitely a Critter of Chaos, this one: :sideeyes:

New kH bottle arrived in just a day! 👍

 

20220520_122833.thumb.jpg.2f4c20db9e3b70e976b6b26ca7e6e16a.jpg

 

I've also ordered extra Mg and Ca buffers, but that'll most likely take time to arrive since it is from a different vendor. 

 

I'm tentatively planning to WC the tank in 2 to 3 days, although I *might replace the media and scrape the glass a day earlier (to lessen the workload). 

 

Otherwise, the nano is doing well. Glass is a bit filthy, but no biggie. 👍
