Not exactly reefing, but I took advantage of this insanely warm weather to clean out the small pond (one of those molded ones like 200-250 gallons) in my back yard. The kids decided it would be fun last October to stick about 10 gallons of white pine needles in it..... I also found out the previous owners thought it would be a good idea to stick about 300 lbs of granite rocks and another 200 of rocks and sand down there. Also added a small waterfall/filter on it. Got it up and running, just need to clean up all those rocks and add some rock/design around the waterfall. Once it warms up a little more I'll move my 1 koi from inside to out. Might get a more colorful one this year if I can find one I like.

Looks good! Did you get those from the coral vendor in Stoughton?
Two of the hammers and the mushrooms were. The chalice and one of the hammers are from reeftide. I actually got another small order of frags again today from reeftide. I'll post some pics in a bit. Thank you btw

Awesome. I'm watching a few of the items they just posted on ebay right now. Were you happy with their quality and health?

Very happy with the quality. Shipping could be improved. No heat pack, frag in a bag. My recent orders from reeftide included a nice styrofoam cooler, heat pack and frags in small plastic cups in labeled bags. Very impressed with their stuff, they are my new go to i think

Good to know, thanks! I'd be driving to pick them up myself, so shipping wouldn't be an issue :)

First two frags in the tank now to figure out where I want to place them. Should I take them off the frag or cut the stand off then glue them where I want them?

Very cool, congrats! It’s personal preference on the frags. Sometimes i find a perfect spot for a plug knowing the coral will overgrow it anyways so no need to remove
