    Time to share some not so good news with the tank. My Bryopsis has returned yet again. I thought I saw some of the small tufts popping up just before Christmas and confirmed it before I went to the Keys. It's not a big deal, but I am going to try something a little different. Typically, I use a combination of Vibrant 2x per week and a treatment of Fluco. I can have the stuff gone in 6 days. The down side is that it always comes back. The Fluco also seems to hurt my pod population. This time I'm going to try and get rid of it with Vibrant only. I know it will take a lot longer but hoping it will eradicate it completely.
    I'll take some good pictures this weekend before I up my dose so people can see exactly what these beast looks like in a tank. It doesn't look like the traditional Bryopsis. I'll try to get some pictures in the tank, a tuft pulled out on a hard surface, and some shots under the scope if there is value.

    I have a decent Nikon camera and use Adobe Lightroom. I try to adjust the photo's to get them as close to their actual color as possible. Anything with the Regal tang is tough. My camera does not like how bright blue he is. I have to do a lot of editing to reduce the saturation he causes.
    This is what the unedited photo looked like. #honestyinreefing

    So many good things with the aquarium, but there are a few not so good things.

    First, I lost my beautiful green Mandarin. No idea what happened. He was plump and fat but the hermit crabs are picking him apart right now. He was a very large size so I guess it is possible he was old when I got him. Still, makes me sad.

    The other challenge I am facing is the extra flow I've added. My SPS love it, my LPS don't. I moved my hammer corals into more sheltered locations so they are doing ok. I just noticed my Trachy is receding. I've tried to move it into a more sheltered location now. Hopefully it recovers. The only other issue I see right now is with my GSP. Some of it is dying back from the intense flow. Don't think I'll do anything with it.
