  1. SPS Canyon: ELOS Midi

    Did some frag trading today! Picked up a RR Pink Floyd, a Strawberry Shortcake, and an Unknown Pink Acropora (mounted horizontally) Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr My Vivid Rainbow is coloring up! Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr
  2. Magical LED bulb. Get yours while you can!

    Biggest question is whether the white will also provide HCO3!?!?!?!?! Can't be having that inbalance between calcium and alk!
  3. SPS Canyon: ELOS Midi

    The frags under the duo were doing well! I ended up moving a lot of my acropora frags up to the display tank or selling them off. I still need to order that replacement array from you lol... I picked up a new piece from the LFS this weekend. It's a maricultured millepora and is on fire! It is a brilliant yellow, orange, and green. Fluconazole also took care of this previously bryopsis covered zoa colony! Here are some other fun night shots:

  5. Counter-Top NANO REEF Build - Pics & Progress

    Looks like a vivid creative aquatics random flow generator! Great little product.
  6. Mark's 150 (NanoBox Retro)

    I swear Mark. Even if you just fragged a few smaller pieces from the green slimer, you could cover your 2 part cost and probably a bit more!
  7. Lower range Alk

    You should test the new water's dkH to figure out what dkH your salt water is mixing up to? Like clown said, if it's reading at about 7dkH, I wouldn't worry about trying to bring your alk up. Many reefs, including mine run 6.5-7dkH without issues! If I'm testing my waters after a water change, I typically wait about an hour or two.
  8. Mark's 150 (NanoBox Retro)

    Have you tried trading frags for two part?
  9. Over the edge

    Where's the Chicken Fish?
  10. SPS/ACRO Growout Contest, REBOOT!

    Oooo. The microclados are a very pretty acropora. Here are my browned out ones. Untitled by Xiaoxi Yang, on Flickr
  11. When to start dosing Alkalinity

    Weird. How many doses/volume did you dose prior to the water change?
  12. Bommie & Floating SPS Islands (Uwdanno)

    I use T5/LED but I hear the diffuser provides a more even light coverage and less shadowing/disco balling.
  13. When to start dosing Alkalinity

    I'm a little confused about the timeline. Did you start dosing after your water change, or did your ALK just spontaneously increase before you had the chance to start dosing.
