    Yeah it's a bummer but very happy to have a home to go back to! Our town took a pretty big hit so we've been very fortunate

    Well everybody... this tank is no more We live within Sonoma County in Glen Ellen and we were evacuated for these past two weeks due to the wildfires. Thankfully our house survived but unfortunately for almost the entire time we were evacuated our house was without power. All you reefers know what that means! I was really bummed to lose everything but I'm already thinking about what's next

    Howdy CM! Busy with traveling for work so it's been hard to keep the tank pleasing to the eye. What better than to just go ahead and get a clam for the tank right? I'm looking at getting a maxima but I've been down in LA for going on three weeks now so we'll see how the tank is looking when I get home in a few days!

    Nice, make it happen What aquarium are you rocking nowadays? Thread yet?

    I just moved stuff around yesterday. Trying to make room for some other stuff and make what's in there a little happier as far as lighting and flow. If all goes according to plan I should have a clam in there sometime soon. Trying to carve out a space for it! Do you have a tank right now?

    Tank is looking incredible! Did you get the mounts for your light sorted?
  10. Lucky pup! Looks like a great trip. I've been all around there but still haven't made it to Mono Wait, did you say @DaveFason is coming out to teach us to fly fish next weekend? Sound like a good plan

    Thanks! Thanks Dave! The light is great - just what I was looking for. Pretty much! I was using and I'm still using Fritz salt. I called them up and they sent me out a new box which tested on the mark.

    Haha well I tricked him into posing by feeding the tank shortly before taking that shot I do love having a YWG. I've had one in pretty much every one of my tanks - great character. He needs another pistol shrimp friend though!

    Okay a real update with an FTS that I've been promising probably for months now IMG_9800 by Justin Desrosiers, on Flickr So obviously the tank has changed a bit. I rescaped and all was going well until... I started using a bad batch of salt. I was using it for about a month and then the tank started crashing. After a water test found I had an alk level of around 5... I lost a lot of flesh on most of my LPS so corals are still a bit off. I have a branching frogspawn I'm nursing in low light and flow in the sump that lost a bunch of heads but the ones that survived are recovering nicely. The hammer has bounced back and is trying to split it's existing head and also grow a new one so it's very deflated. Took a few other photos. Not the best macros as it was all handheld but here yah go!

I also trimmed up the succulents and some plants and of course added the new light Dave sent me! I noticed after I put the camera away that I had some glare on the tank, sorry about that.
