    Copedog's ADA 60P - First Reef

    Sweet tank, I love the mockup. Any particular reason you run a foam guard on that MP10? I didn't see any nems or small fish. IMO the foam guard gunks up pretty quickly and cuts down on flow.
  2. We've also been working on the living room as well. Both my wife and I adore mid-century modern styles.
  3. I've been quiet but busy. Working on setting up my new system. Tank transfer should be tomorrow!

    Hanna checker

    I definitely use my Alk checker much more than my phosphate checker! I use the alk checker on an almost-daily basis, whereas I only use the phosphate checker once every month or so.
  5. New Light: Phoenix 14k driven at 250WHQI and 2x B+, 2x C+ bulbs. The shimmer is insane. Don't worry, the Nanobox ATI Hybrid is going to go over the new grow-out tank!
  6. No idea. It could have been anything. I was away so I don't know what went wrong.
  7. Get ready to weep. I also had to throw away half of my frag tank because they were just skeletons left. All I can do is massive water changes and hope things come around. If they don't, I guess I'm doing a whole system reset with the move. 😞
  8. Tank got devastated during my 2 week vacation. Pics tomorrow, but holy crap extensive STN/RTN across almost all of my acropora. On the bright side, we closed on a house and am moving in within the next 2 weeks. This means that I'll have a full-fledged fish room to restart my system with.

    That's going to be an awesome top-down tank.

    That's a big ol zero edge tank!
  11. Only update currently is that I'm sitting in China while my reef is being babysat in the U.S. 😞 I miss my tank.

    Are T5's being phased out?

    T5's are definitely not being phased out, especially for reefers who are serious about acropora. Due to the characteristics of the T5 lighting, it provides a even blanket of high-par lighting that is hard to replicate through point-source lights such as T5s and halides. Shadowing is also minimized under T5 lighting, which prevents self-shadowing of larger acropora colonies.

    Harry’s Riddikulus Reefer 350: **NewPhotos**

    What gets me are the bluish polyps, cyan body and the red/yellow corallites. If your lower polyps start turning red and it starts looking like a bellicose, feel free to send me a frag 😜

    Harry’s Riddikulus Reefer 350: **NewPhotos**

    For some reason, this piece reminds me of the BC Bellicose.... https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/bc-bellicose-trobairitz.350124/ I wonder what it will look like as it grows out!
