  1. Kalristo's Slice of Ocean

    Finally starting to see small micro bacteria forming on the glass. I think it’s from the pink Fiji sand. IIRC these are beneficial to the salt water tank right? Also just topped off 5 gallons into my auto top off reservoir. Now to see how long it takes for 5 gallons to evaporate and see what my rate of filling the 5 gallon reservoir is! Also so just got this turkey baster from Amazon to blow off the debris on my live rock and spot feed future Acans

    I didn’t even know that they were doing the sale, I just happened to be in the area! Just found out they do .50 per gallon for salt water on Wednesday so I’m going to make it a ritual to go Wednesday’s! Thanks! I’m trying my best not to ever put my hands into the tank aside from adding corals

    I think it was the ghost skimmer I have. The micro bubbles are all gone after turning it off..

    So many micro bubbles. I wonder what it could be from?

    Thanks! I really like nassarius snails. I just introduced 2 nassarius snails, 2 margarita snails, and 2 turbo snails today! Awesome! Have you set up your tank yet?

    Hey all, I came back to salt water reefing after 4 years. New objective: AUTOMATION. Trying to keep my hands out of the tank as much as possible except for cleaning. That means once live rock is set, its set. I really wanted to run an auto top off this time and to figure out a refill schedule so that less time is spent tinkering with the tank. This time I also wanted to create the aquascape to resemble a beach with the transition from shallow to deep live sand. For the rockscape I 'm going for the side of a cliff look and wanted to show the bare bones on the bottom of the rock so that whatever I put into the tank can swim between the open spaces. Since this is a true journal I will also document how much $$ is spent. RIP my wallet.
