    I feel your pain! I've been focusing so hard on my upgrade that I've let my DT slide. Its not much fun updating a build thread for a makes you cringe when you look at it!

    We need 28 hours in a day..... :)

    EXACTLY!!! I vote we add a few more hours! :D
    Thanks guys! It's an unfortunate setback, but I'll pull it together somehow and hopefully get this tank back up to speed. #downbutnotstayingdown

    I added a Watchman Gobie and a Pistol Shrimp the middle of June, We saw the Watchman the other night and have not seen the Shrimp since, we know he is there because he keeps digging:)

    maybe it's time you focus on some nice non-corals like LPS, and stop killing endangered sticks. You don't need to race the GBR to failure buddy.

    @mdbannister Could you post a pic of your sump setup? I have the same sump but was looking to add space for a refugium somehow.

    Hi! Here's how mine is set up (These pics are actually from when I set it up initially. It still looks the same just a bit dirtier. :confused::rolleyes::oops:):

    I don't think there's anywhere in it that I would put in a fuge unless you use the skimmer chamber for that somehow. Mine doesn't run a fuge though. I'd be more inclined toward an algae scrubber anyway.

    @mdbannister Did your sump change? I thought I had read that you were running the Somatic 60. Maybe I mixed up my build threads...

    Ah! Yeah. I've got that on a frag tank that hasn't been completely set up yet. There may be room IMO for a fuge in that one somewhere.

    Daniel,
    If your still thinking about firing up a cal reactor please use @hybridazn 's method.

    My GEO two stage has been firing for about two months and could not be happier.

    Hope your reef is turning for the better.

    Freddie
