Green birdnest is bleaching out some. I believe due to the lighting I bought a diffuser and turned whites down to 15% for now. Everything else seems fine. Still has good polyp extension but they are loosing some pigment.

Yes, I am aware the Birdnest is bleached out. I have added a diffuser and shade over the coral. Coral still has great polyp extension hoping it can bounce back.

Removed Birdnest and tried to cut up to save but it eventually all died.

Whelp so I was out of town this past weekend and my chiller blew a fuse on Saturday morning. Tank got to 85 powered off everything I could remotely to try to make less heat. Dropped to 83 over night and made it home by 3:30. Fuse was stuck in chiller and had to break it to remove bad fuse. Replaced fuse and tank was back to normal by 8 pm. Everything seems fine for now but my bubble gum seems ******. Have to wait and see if I loose anything. But here is a new updated video.

That's all I have for now. Started dosing nitrates as I noticed some SPS have lost color since I started those have started to color back up. So we will see how that goes. My bubble gum digi is still hanging on but ever since the heat spike It has never been the same. Also having an issue with the Calrx effluent line clogging might have to finally invest in a new pump so I can get better stability.

Beautiful tank!! My 90 has been in a "reboot" since last fall. Hope to be there with you someday! I love to hear from long-term reefers. I'm in year 12 now. My 2 youngest grandbabies love to tank watch, too! ;Joyful

If you want to see stress, take a look at the first page of my build thread!! Thankfully, things are much better now from my tank reboot. My youngest grandsons are mesmerized by the tank. When they get fussy, we visit the tank!

Is that a battery backup to the bottom right? I have a portable generator in the garage for longer emergencies (like ice, snow), but I'm looking into a battery backup for a shorter outage that would at least run the return pump for a few hours.

No thats my chiller, I do have a battery backup that runs one wave pump but its in the house with the main tank. All my equipment is in the garage so it gets hot haha.
 

Woud you rather start a tank with dry rock or live rock from the ocean?
