I am an idiot.  Was changing filter floss and cleaning out skimmer cup and somehow knocked a small thermometer loose from suction cup and the thing made it all the way to return chamber and got sucked into the return pump, shattered, and scattered plastic bits and metal balls all over the display tank.  I am so mad.  I also had to take apart the plumbing to inspect the return pump and now the union is leaking.  But it's leaking back into the return chamber so I don't care.  Enough for tonight ... Will clean up tomorrow.  Blah.

One of my Talbot has been bullying other fish.  I suspect he bullied my midas and red fire fish to death already.  I haven't seen either one for days.  I have lid so they didn't jump out.  

 

Soooo I went and got 4 azure damselfish.  Spread the aggression right???  Talbot and azure supposed to be least aggressive. 

 

Let the damsel royale begin

Took a couple of vacays and tank didn't do well.  Lost a lot of SPS and a lot of fish.  Auto feeder didn't turn on.  Nutrients bottomed out.  Fish starved.  The ups and downs of reef keeping.  

 

Things are bouncing back though.  A photo from a few weeks ago:

8 months old.  Been through some ups and downs but things been looking great the past month!  Some of my fav corals are: 

 

- my 5 years old Walt Disney colony.  Lost tons of acros during cross country move, vacations, parameter swings, etc but this colony is a survivor!!

 

- old school ORA purple stylo.  Classic underrated easy SPS.

 

- 6 years old torch colony.  Started with a single head and grew to 30+ heads.  Now trimmed and broken into mini colonies because heads keep dying from all the shading

 

- ricordea are one of my fav softies.

Oh yeah,I forgot they just did a huge sale. That is awesome man. I keep forgetting you are local meow 😂

 

 I will tell you 2gcoral.com has 70% off,pretty much all Tenuis but some are like $18 and ARC has a buuuunch acro's for super cheap atm. FHC just had a boat load like 20 pages of coral for $14-$30 that were CRAZY.

I really like FHC but two frags from my last order RTN over night.  They look like fresh cuts.  ARC shipping is expensive and their price similar to TCK.  I have to check out 2gcoral but I think I will stick with TCK going forward.

Oh damn really ?! They do look like fresh cuts,I would just have them hold them for a extra week or 2. Well I think ARC & TCK are hand and hand. But 2Guys I would love to order from,I mean if they came out with Cherry Bomb they gotta be a good choice,no lol.

I bought a couple of acros from them during their last live sale and they sent me 17 extra nice pieces.  I think the whole pack is valued at $3000 or so.  They sent me a vivid insanity that goes for $500+.

I don't....hahahah I am the worst with testing parameters.  I only test when corals start looking bad...
