    Thanks and I will!

    I read your article a while back when I removed flatworms from my previous tank several years back (150G). I even have a contraption much like the one you have with the small tubing/net. I just got overconfident and thought I had a lot of them and never realized how many where in the cracks of the rocks I couldn't see. Disasters aside, the one good thing about this hobby is that it's never stale and you're always learning...unfortunately often times from mistakes! Seeing this thread is proof the payoff is so good. I need a blooming tank in my life to relieve the stress from my work days...can't wait to get back at it.

    I've been working on an important part of my business recently, getting a CNC machine installed properly and learning how to operate it. I've been working with power tools for years, but this takes things to a whole new level. Yet, I couldn't feel more stressed each time I turn it on because I keep expecting something to go wrong. Hopefully a month from now, it will be far easier to run and my stress level will drop accordingly.

    My reef bugs me, but overall it's a good healthy tank. I have to make some big changes because of all the colonies near the surface right now, and that will affect the overall look in a drastic way. Hopefully it'll go well.

    Good luck on your rebuild.

    Absolutely stunning as usual! Totally love your White Tail Bristletooth Tang! I recently got a Blonde Naso...it's still young and am not sure of its sex, but I hope it ends up being as awesome looking as yours!

    It amazes me how their tentacles don't get all tangled up! Nice.
