    Second round of water made. Sucking more sand out tomorrow. Tank has done well with the removal so far. A little cyanobacteria popped up and I blew it off. No biggie.

    Very nice setup. Waiting for my 125 to reach this maturity eventually. Saw you posted you were in the Army previously, were you at fort Riley?

    Picture before bed.....

    No, this isn't bleaching or RTN. It's one weeks growth. Zooxanthellae hasn't caught up yet. Purple monster.
