    My monthly post is below!



    As you can see above mine is as white as the empty space in the text box. Actually mine doesn't have as much color as the white text box.
    Unfortunately, if you caught my drift... Mine is dead. So I am out! Good luck to the rest of you! Very excited with some of the pictures already!

    No idea.. All the normal parameters, no swings.. My tank can grow zoos and mushrooms just issues with LPS and SPS. The only thing I can think of was maybe some joint compound on the male fittings got into the water or bad silicon in the sump.. Since it died I ripped out my sump for a new larger sump and added all new hard plumbing. So Ill see if that changes anything..

    I wrote it had no growth so I felt a ruler was pointless, lol. Here is one I just took with the ruler.
