Yesterday there were 3 RFA's here. Green one in the middle was attached to the little piece of rubble there. seems to have disappeared overnight.

Wow thanks for the write up. Honestly, I need to reread it a few times and chew on it before I'll fully understand. Just how my brain works.
Saved my notes from “class” this week for ya’. You can copy them if you like. ;)
(Provided you are able to read my writing...)

I had to chew on it A LOT, in case you can’t tell by this. Didn’t want you thinking I just knew all of that off the top of my head... This is a second draft of my notes. The first draft is just scattered thoughts on twice as many pages. Brainstorming and trying to piece the puzzle together completely. There were some notes about your issues specifically jotted down, too, that obviously aren’t in this draft. Really hope your pH stabilizes and you can get the Alk where you want it. I actually learned a good bit pondering over your problem.

In other news, I don't know who in my tank was previously keeping the Vermited snails in check, but I really really do miss having them in my tank. I probably have I had half a dozen visibles as long as I've had the tank. Since going to follow, they are blowing up!

Torch island may look like a porcupine by the time fish come back in.

Quite a bummer.

How the heck did I miss all this I’m still trying to catch up
Like you, I often times forget I have my own thread so probably not too much to catch up on.

My daughter is Soo sweet. She gets great joy in making my coffee for me. Whenever it's empty, she Topps it off and delivers it for a kiss :cool:

I had a brain fart. I was looking at post from March and it’s definitely May. Definitely needed more coffee before phone

Just realized I only have 2 more days under copper! Woohoo!

Planning to remove copper with water changes every few days. I don't really see a need for cuprisorb. Fish can't go back into the DT until July 4th so not in a rush.

Once copper is out, prazi comes next. I ran Kanaplex simultaneously with copper as a wrasse developed some nasty fin Rot.

I've got a dry piece of holey rock that I can't WAIT to get into the HT just for pods. The mandarin is Slightly skinny. He's eating, but would do better with MOAR Pods (&Lamp)

Yesterday, big rose girl didn't open at all. She was deflated and withered and I was hoping splitting.

Today right after lights on. I can't see foot or mouths yet, but looks like it may have gone 3 for 1 which would make me very happy.
