    Well it has been awhile since my last update. I made a lot of progress, made mistakes and learned a lot. Before I go into the detail, here is what the tank looks like now.

    I am just now getting to the point the chemistry is stable. I started using Kalkwasser at first, but I just could not get the tank water balanced. I decided to switch over to 2 part when I saw the beginnings of Calcium precipitation on the back glass. For me, the dosing was hard to control since I ran the Kalkwasser set up out of my ATO. After switching over to 2 part everything fell into line.

    In the mean time I joined #SCMAS a local club and it turns out they run the #Reefapaloosa here in Cali. At the last meeting I won a raffle they hold at the end. Check out my new nem.

    Now if only my Clowns will find it. They are ignoring the nem at the moment. I hope they figure it out soon.

    On another topic, I ended up volunteering at #Reefapaloosa. I was one of the folks working the door in the afternoon. Maybe I saw you there? It was a great time. I bought these goodies.

    I met a lot of cool reefers and was able to talk to some of the blogger personalities we follow. Anyway, I recommend attending next year if you can. Great show!

    Until later, happy reefing.
