Was setting up for hand feeding again like normal.
Uncover the front 6" glass tops.
Place a folded 2"x2" square of nori on each of the 3 clips we use to prevent too much competition.
Go and chop up some frozen clam for hand feeding.
Hand feeding the fish the usual half a mini clam.
Notice yellow tang and a yellow 'coris' wrasse are missing.
Yellow tang was wedged in the rocks and 4th wrasse is on the floor.
Not a good tank day.

Looks okay. The bubble is just about completely gone. I am getting some Cyanobacteria and hair algae, but that will take care of itself. I just need to get my hands a little dirty this weekend in a few spots. The city flushed the pipes last weekend and browned the water. I skipped making RO/DI and missed a scheduled water change and cleaning.
Not too worried. I just like sharing a few #HonestyInReefing pictures. The broad mix of critters in our tank are thriving and that is what matters.

Hashtags are always preceded by the number symbol (#). Hashtags allow you to follow specific content. For example I often use the hashtag #HonestyInReefing. You can click on any hashtag and get a pop up window that offers in the upper right for you to "Watch Tag".
If you click it you will get an Alert any time someone uses that hashtag. You can make a hashtag out of any word and follow it. Some hashtags are used to get help on R2R. For example, as part of Reef Squad I follow their hashtag. If anyone summons #ReefSquad I get an alert. Any user can follow that hashtag if they wish to help out (I followed it long before joining Reef Squad). Another good one is #Mods. If, for example, a new user wants to change their user name or move a thread to a more appropriate forum, you can summon mods to help them with that hashtag (only moderators need follow the mods hashtag).
You can search for and see a list of popular hashtags here
EDIT: Apologies for summoning everyone.
Even with a current algae issue, I can still post a shot like this (taken yesterday) after not having done more than clean the glass for 2 weeks. A side shot of my system.
I dont know if this falls under #honestyinreefing or #readthedirectionsidiot
Prolly the 2nd one. So this whole time, I have had the two "outside" gaskets inside the overflow box, between the locknut for the bulk head and the inside wall of the box.... yaaa... so... before I started dremmeling... I found this...
Needless to say, I've had the gaskets in the wrong place this entire time.
They are now in the correct position which is between the glass and the box.
