So I decided to keep it simple.. on its second week... i cycled “reactor” media with quick start in a bucket prior to adding to the tank... expected a little bit of a phosphate rise and got one.. the first week I ran Chemiclean elite, but decided the GFO was causing more harm than the phosphates would so I pulled it.. Animals were much happier when I pulled it. 1/4 light diffuser panels from Tap Plastics i broke down my ADA 60F and had a 16w x 32l x 12h tank made of 3/8 Starfire glass.. i live in a Valley 10 miles from a Titan V launch pad.

You know your an addicted reefer when you find yourself driving 40mins out of your way to go buy a $50 booger. It is an OG bounce mushroom so was definitely well worth both the time and the price. This is my second OG bounce, but will be the first one I am growing that has no bubbles to start. I haven't seen to many well documented booger to full bounce grow outs so have always hesitated to get a frag without bubbles visible already, but maybe once this one is successful me and other people will feel more comfortable about the process and risk. This particular booger was a lost frag that was found after a few weeks so is faded but came with a foot attached to a larger sized piece of sand(glueable). Here it is free floating in its specimen jar And here it is after I glued its piece of sand to a frag plug and drilled a hole in the specimen cup so it slides up around the frag plug and the booger is protected from floating away until I'm sure it's attached Day 1
