Hahaha. Btw. I thought I had posted this on my build thread, but I posted this on @submaweiner’s 650 peninsula build thread. o_O
Some more of my coral were starting to fight in my 60 gallon so I moved them over to the 650 last week. After a few days, they were looking really good, so I decided to move the rest this past weekend.

Also got some clams from clam mania. When the lights come on, I’ll take some more pictures of the tank. It’s a little cloudy at the moment. I have not figured out how to get the uv plumbed in yet, but ammonia is 0, nitrite is low to 0 and everyone seems happy and polyps are extending. Not confident that the lights are set correctly. I need to just buy a par meter. The one I rented was the older apogee and just wasn’t helpful.

How is the fuel consumption, have a great trip?! :)
Not too bad. The truck holds 36 gallons of gas. We filled up a little over half way and have about 2/3 tank now. Doesn’t seem to be an issue with gas down here.

I am heading to the host hotel tomorrow.
We’re here already. Let us know when you get here! We should go for lunch. CDC says fulls vaccinated people don’t have to wear masks anymore. I’m fully vaccinated, but not sure I I feel about sharing my air with the world.

Got some nice acanthophylia and Aussie lords from your reef at rap. Was looking for a particular color war paint scoly. I couldn’t find one so I just asked @WWC for help. They found the perfect one for me so I purchased it. Also have a welso and favias coming in from them. I cannot pass up a pretty favia. Totally my favorite. But I LOVE brain corals in general.

I’m looking for a kalkwasser stirrer. I’m considering an ice cap magnetic stirrer and an avast marine stirrer. Any opinions on those two? Or any other brands I should look at? I may make a post specifically for this because I can’t find one... maybe I don’t know the correct search terms.

So I’ve had this camera (Nikon D3200) for ages. And I’ve never really played with it. I REALLY want to get better at coral photography. Would it be worth my time to learn how to use this and buy lenses for corals or would I be better off updating to a newer camera?
