Happy Birthday, Jason!

frag rack has got to go.
that scape is the bomb. :cool:
Totally agree. As soon as the second half is done the frags that are spoken for will have a permanent home and the rack disappears.
And thank you for the compliment. It was my first try at NSA and I'm pleased with it. Can't wait to see what 6 months do to it.

New rocks gave me dinos.... let the battle begin... going to test phosphates and nitrates tomorrow. Just started running chaeto in the fuge hoping I didn't bottom out nutrients... zoas are a little upset... lps seem annoyed.

Brown stringy, blasts apart with a turkey baster... reforms in long strands...

Couldn't find my nitrate test. Did run my hanna low range test. Phosphates are at .04 - .05 I'd like them closer to .12 seems to be my sweet spot.

Removed 2/3 chaeto from fuge. I'll cut back the photo period. And feed heavy. Should get it moving in the right direction.

Dirty water transplant happening tomorrow... 0 nitrates .03 phosphates tonight when tested I need dirty water...

Figured out this is definitely my fault...
60% of the water was brand new when I transferred to the new tank. Then when I added my new rock I did another 15 gallons so about 16% water change...
Then I added chaeto not thinking to test before. 2 days later... DINOS...
