    Quick update:

    Acros are growing like crazy in the tub despite weekly dippings. I aim to put them back in at the end of the month. Fish still have until March 3 before the 76 day fallow period is up. Main DT hasn't exploded with all types of algae or anything without the fish in there but I find it interesting that my bubble algae population went nuts. I'm pretty sure it was my fault as I was trying to remove the few populations of bubble algae in the tank and I ended up popping a bunch just to get them out. 2 weeks later and it's popping up in other places. I might go pick up a dozen emerald crabs and let them feast.

    Got a swap coming up soon so I built these for transport of the frags.

    It'll go nice with my new frag tank.

    Ran the frag tank through it's first test run. It's going to be real hard packing this thing up between swaps and not just leaving it there.

    Current FTS. I removed the black background and experimenting with a blue gradient going from light blue at the top to dark blue at the bottom.

    What I have brewing in my QT. Don't worry, they were actually QT'ed in a tub. I took this video when I put them temporarily in a 30-gallon as I switched the tubs. Two of the achilles are going to friend's tanks.

    Here's a more recent video I took of the tank around last October. It's more of a moving FTS. I'll work on a video now that my corals and most of my fish are back in the tank.

    Thanks! She gets spoiled more than the tank so maybe that's why she puts up with my shenanigans.

    Really like the gradient. I'm surely doing this on my next build, which won't happen for a long, long time. I love the look of blue backgrounds.
