    I use the Salifert teat kits. I cant distinguish on the phos. The color is hard to read at low levels.

    @dantimdad My heart goes out to you. You did an excellent job with him! Proud parent moments are also the hardest.

    Andrew lost his Oregon tort. It got knocked over and stung by a chalice. His heart is broken.

    Bummer. At least it was accidental. I jumped the gun on a purple stylophora and it bleached out in 4 days. I am bringing it back to the lfs in hopes it survives, but I feel like a jerk. I knew not to try sps for a year.

    Not the tort! Of all things. It was doing so well too. He must be heartbroken.

    Sorry to hear about the tort. I bought one once. I killed it before it got in tank. Bone cutters trying to cut it off of the stupid black hard plastic frag plug. It shot across the room and smashed against a wall and exploded into micro-frags. Sad ending for a nice coral. I now handle this procedure a little differently.

    I never buy corals on these plugs for that reason... they are from Rock Hard Reef.

    We are leaving it in the tank. If anybody can have a miracle recovery, it will be him.

    I like plugs that are crumbly (with just a little persuasion). Also prefer that my corals not come encrusted on something that looks like a pregnant golf tee. :)

    Tonight at scouts...they told Andrew they wanted me to go to camp as a leader. The look was priceless. I would be the first female leader to ever go to camp. I'm not going, but the look...

    I'm not taking away his opportunity to be independent. Besides, who's gonna feed his tank?
