  1. Day 60 on the birdsnest. Still under stock lighting. Looks like it is spreading on the plug as well.
  2. Yeah, their are 2-3 in the tank now and I saw them doing that for a few days. We'll see if more show up soon.
  3. In the middle of another heatwave here and the ChillSollution chiller does not seem to be doing much. Until this week it always kept the tank within 1 degree F of my 78 set point. But with tempt between 98F and 106F I may need to add a fan or maybe get ride of the hood and just deal with evap.
  4. I have a Neon green Candy cane and is has also not really grown that I can tell. Almost all my other corals have grown. The exceptions are the Candy cane which has either not grown or maybe had the heads shrink and my rainbow monti that just wasted away. Keeping an eye on this thread. I am hoping to get some insight into getting my candy cane to grow. =) Also I see you are also using Aquarimate. I love that app.
  5. Ordered 2 new pieces. Cant wait to get them in my tank.
  6. So I was trying to get a close up on this orangish thing growing out of the Pavona Maldivensis to figure out what it was when the snail caught my atterntion. Still not sure about the orange critter climbing out of the coral. Definitely some hitchhikers in this frag.
  7. The wife said I have enough corals for now....... but you guys are just down the street. Surely she did not mean no more Legendary Corals. I am loving the Birdsnest I got from you guys. I may have to "accidentally" order a few more from you this weekend. =P
  8. Went to get salt water and came home with 2 more corals. Added the Weed know as Xenia. I cant help it, I like the way it looks And I added a Pavona Maldivensis frag. Which seem to have some filter feeder on the left hand side. Which I can see popping in and out all day.
  9. We lost the Red Scooter dragonet yesterday to Velvet and lost clown today. The last clown does not look like he will make it. Tank will be fish free for 2-3 months. On the plus side my nitrates and phosphates should be great. Coral and inverts only for me for a while I guess.
  10. That great to hear. How companies deal with issues like these a good measure of their integrity to me. Even the best products have failures, Its how they deal with them that matters.
  11. Here is a side by side of the birdsnest comparing day 1 with (Today) day 29 under the stock EVO 13.5 lighting..
  12. With that design they have essentially reversed the setup. Hard so say if the new material will be more resilient, but I do like that it is not hidden. I could inspect it every time I clean the impeller and cage. The new power cable routing on both models offers stress relief so the cable will not be getting tugged and twisted in the sealant. This should eliminate any failures due to mechanical stress from cable movement. I would consider either when replacing my nano. The only trick would be getting one with low enough flow for my small tank.
  13. Same kind of failure?
