    Well,
    I remembered that when we moved the chiller for the cal reactor, we used some old python tubing that had an I. D. of 5/8 of an inch.

    Tried to contact Python for a long yet tiny extension, but got no reply :(

    Got lucky on Amazon with the tube and just ordered this elbow in hopes that the hose wont try to make a kink.
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BYLKK9E/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Figure :confused: I'd grind down the end of the tube to about a 15 to 20 degree angle, so I can get under the entire rock scape.

    Welp,
    Two Saturdays ago I stuffed the Dendros (Orange Crush) polyps with fish pellet food.

    It's polyps have been closed ever since :( and after consulting with @HolisticBear we went back to pushing two T5's instead of four, a couple of days ago.

    Just noticed ;Wideyed that it's polyps are coming back out.

    It's an apt name. I do get the feeling dendros just do their thing. Being opening 12h in a row just isn't their thing. I am relieved it's open again ;Nailbiting

    Thanks for your help with the par factor.

    Your right about one thing: Each polyp has a mind of it's own :confused:

    Either that or even with 12 heads, there isn't a single mind to be found

    Good luck. That's a fare bit. Seems like 2x a week is pretty common & safe.

    Thank You :rolleyes:

    We downed ;Dead the aiptasia in 2017 with the nudi's.

    Going for the BA in 2018.

    Don't carbon dose, so hope ;Nailbiting that cyano does not appear.

    I’ve used Vibrant to great effect getting rid of a final stuburn batch of green hare algae. Killed it off in around 2 weeks.

    It did affect and kill 2 Elegance corals including the large one I originally had at the front of my tank which reacted as soon as I added it but I don’t think you have these.

    I only used it for 2 doses over 4 weeks.

    Just keep an eye out for anything reacting to it but you should be fine Freddie, and I’m sure you’ve already seen the large thread on it.
