My stupid urchin knocked the Raindrops on Roses and Pink Cadillac off the frag racks today. When I picked up the Pink Cadillac it had a lot of Green at the base so it's growing. The Raindrops on Roses has some yellow puddling around the base so it's starting to encrust the plug some more as well.

I'm thinking about taking the frag rack that's got my digis and the green Poci (don't tell @billyocean but it's growing some) and move it to the other side where my Acros are. It'll be a little more stable of a rack for the Acros (urchin won't pick them up or knock them off) and I can get them more directly under the light. I'll have to distribute the Digis (2 Bubblegum, Spongodes, ROAB, and Orange), the Milka Stylo, and the Pocillopora.

Decisions decisions.
Ordered a locking frag rack the other day because I'm tired of frags getting knocked out of my reefing art rack...its a great rack but the viking swoops in and has its way.

What site is this?
It was a Reef2Reef Live Sale. I forget who the sale for - either Living Reef Orlando or Cherry Corals probably. That was a long time ago. The one @billyocean is referring to is SBB. I would estimate 80% of the corals in my tank are SBB. Shane is a great vendor with awesome corals. Ann at LRO is great as well. I placed my first order with her on Black Friday and those will be here Thursday as well.

I lied. It was a Coral-Vault live sale back in April. I didn't set this tank up until June. I've never shopped with Coral-Vault but I was lurking that sale.

I'm considering reinstalling my 250 watt MH over the center of my tank and moving the 75 watt Noop to on side and the 90 watt Noop to the other. That'd give me a 140 and a 75 on the left side with my lower light corals in the shade there, 250 MH in the middle, and a 140 a 90 on the right side with my higher light corals there. Or do I put the MH on the right side and take the 90 and 75 off and put the 140 in the middle so I don't end up messing with too much and bother the corals? I don't know... I need more rockwork is what I really need so I gotta stop being lazy and make some rocks and cycle the ones I have!
