Made my first attempt at fragging the JINGLE BELLS cyphastrea. Didn't cut the plug off like I originally planned just cut an edge off to see how it recovers. I didn't take pictures yet, super nervous about it hopefully it recovers quickly.

Surgery went well, it was bigger than they had originally seen (went from 1cm to about 2 cm). They put me in a knee brace and said I can't move it or put pressure on it for 6 weeks now :(
So this shall be my view for the next 6 weeks,

Not bad for a month and a half! Must be doing something right!
Thank you! Hopefully I can keep them stable and healthy. I'm still debating whether or not to start dosing. I have been reading and watching so much reef related stuff that it seems that once people started dosing their SPS took off. But I'm super nervous to change anything because the status quo is still producing.

Since I have so much time on my hands to sit around I decided to give photo editing a try. This is a picture I took today.

It's a little dark but not too bad for my first attempt!

Did my first water change with the help of my daughter. I love how into the hobby she is! The cyphastrea is about a third of the healed over already after only 2 weeks. Took some top down pictures after the water change.
