I think I might buy another coral this coming weekend.

"Little pinky" is doing quite well, as do the other new corals. So I think I'll buy another acro this time.

I'm on a roll.

Just a heads up, next week my wife is having surgery. Nothing major and I'm taking some time off to tend to her. That's the time I'll remove one of the toadstools.
Hope all goes well this week Flipper

Okay, I'm seriously thinking of adding some flow to the tank.

Currently running a Rw15 on the right side and a RW 8 on the left side running on a RW 15 power supply.

Back of the rock structures get little flow and I think it's time to add some flow back there.

Thinking of adding two RW 4's or two RW 8's on each side in the back of the tank. They can be turned 180 degrees, so mounting them on the back glass should be easy.

Thoughts?

RW8 minimum. If coral are currently happy, reconsider any changes to environment

I chose to use a "Y" locline on my returns at each corner, and pointed 1 of each pair down the back of the tank. Its worked well for the past 2 years.. i cant make out how your returns come back in and where?

The leather looks like a cloud covering the seattle resteraunt skyscraper over seattle. The name escapes me.

Power washing the sand today since the wife is home now. She's doing very good!

Can't beat a old micron filter in a nineties magnum 350! Lol

Works very well!

Great to hear all went well and shes back home and comfy. Cheers

I havent touched my sandbed in months.
;Eggonface

Thanks!
I figured I could use it for REALLY cleaning the sand bed. Water returning back into the tank was absolutely clear! Win, win!
