Something weird was going on right before I left for vacation of course. I came back to 4 dead colonies and a couple of dead frags. I'm trying to right the ship now and figure out what happened. I'll update everyone once things start looking better and I figure out what the heck happened.
Well hope it turns around quicker for ya than longer, gotta love the ups and downs of this hobby, u got plenty of awesome nems and fish to look at while everything colors back up

I've been surprisingly calm this time around. I think having a kid and another on the way has made me keep in mind what's really important in life. Corals can be replaced. ☺

I appreciate it Hemmdog... This is a hobby of perserverence. Those that push through get truly rewarded in the end. This is me pushing real hard right now.

Hey congrats on another little one, and you are exactly right!

Thank you! We're excited and scared to death at the same time.... Kinda like the first kid. Be prepared for a small absence in posting around Thanksgiving when the little guy is due. ☺

These guys I've had in my systems for over a decade... Cool little mini-carpets. At largest... About the size of a half dollar. Stickiest things I've ever encountered. I've seen one in the water column stick to the glass as it drifted by.

Kidding aside, sounds like it is coming back to you! :)
Thanks bud! It's good to see the positive signs from the acros... Once I get through this and have time, I'll share some pics of the carnage.

Alright... The deaths have ceased... I'll do a compilation report next week of the damage but things are going in the right direction now... The browning apocalypse has ceased and colors are coming back! Hooray!

In the meantime... I've been distracted with my son's first days at pre-K and preparing for the new kid in November so that helped me not obsess with the tank issues while it is recovering. A blessing in disguise.

Enjoy a pretty anemone at least until the acros get back to form!
