^^^ Looks like a blood sucker. LOL
Sorry for no updates in a while. Had some issues that literally put the brakes on the build progress. Also looks like I'll be going fishless until next year.
The good news is the corals are doing great. Also tank uglies cleared out within first 2 weeks of the big swap over. I'm going to remove some rock too.
I guess my acan was hungry.
Been over a month from last update. System is doing great. I had a few water on ground moments and am still trying to get the mp40 positioned properly to prevent water splashing onto floor.
Still have not settled on a controller for my co2 scrubber and system ph control. Also debating turning the top off tank to a refugium.
Here are some acan frags I've been neglecting to spot feed.
My electrical cabinet not wire tucked yet. Also have not yet swapped out the bigger LED strip on the chaeto grower.
I should add I'm actually going to have to redo the electrical setup as my KH Guardian arrives saturday
Decided to post up this progress picture. As some know I wiped out all my sps about a year ago. This monti was one of only 3 survivors and I honestly thought it was gone.
Here is a picture from three months ago compared to today.
Hard to tell but this guy has been packing on size. Also note I have the dreaded aiptasia crop up.... Need to purchase some nudibranchs for it.
My day just got busy, its here
Need to figure out where and how to mount the setup.
Tank picture update. Still have a few rocks I'm putting in the sump from the display.
Side picture from today.
New clam location.
So finally installed the KH monitor and found the readings are testing way higher than my hanna test kit. 9.5 vs 7.8
Going to break out a third test kit and see whats up tomorrow.
Okay finished testing alk.
all tests completed in last 10 minutes
Coralvue kh monitor 9.7dkh
red sea alk pro 7.6dkh
hanna colorimeter 8.0dkh
can the kh monitor be that far off? or are the other 2?
Wow, thats interresting.
Just read your thread, very nice progress.
Are you just running the halides, or with t5,s.
A pic of your lighting setup would be great.
I am running Halide only. Decided I did not need t5. The color in person looks very good reminds me of swimming on some reefs. I have toyed with the idea of adding 420nm led and lunar lighting though.
I have only 2 Hamilton pendants and they spread the light very well. I will add a third if I find the sps want more par. Except for extreme edges the sand is sitting at 200par currently.
Ill get a picture posted.
