Well today is the day I think we finally get this batch of fish and corals out of QT and into their forever homes.
Trying to figure out how to pull the plug from the monti and the green star polyps. Just use a blade and scrape of the old plug and use band to hold to new plug or rock??

Any thoughts @fishguy242 @MERKEY @LRT @najer @sfin52 @sp1187 @Lost in the Sauce @F i s h y
(sorry i'm sure i missed many)


horrible pic I know but just giving idea of plugs

LOL, just found this post on Reef Central's site;

Star polyps just grow on a mat, which can be peeled off, superglued on the rock/glass/powerhead/plastic-scuba-diver-bubbler, throw them in the blender to make a thousand frags...whatever...they'll live lol.


Assume the monti is kinda the same

A little concerned with midas:

Everyone else looks ok and entire tank was treated with copper, prazi, and metro. Copper levels holding steady at 2.5 (copper power recommendations).
The spots on face have been there since arrival 3 weeks ago:

What treatment routine are you using please? I thought copper power and prazipro together was a big no no.

Several of the old timers use in conjunction without problems and we have previously as well.

We treat with copper for 30 days, prazi x 1 week and metro x 1 week. QT x 45 days total.
