I figure it's about time I do build thread. I've had my red sea 450 set up since March 2019, but I got back into reefing in 2016 and I've had some of the livestock for 4 years now.

Now for a photo dump

SC Orange Passion - my second time trying this piece and it's one of my favorites!

Left to right - JF Solar Flare, BC Aquatic Man, and WWW Heartbreaker
Obviously I need to get things off the frag rack before they encrust so much :p
IMG_9865.jpg


BC Cricket Spine.. color in the photo is more washed than in person where it has an intense berry-red with yellow polyps. I can't wait to see this one larger
IMG_9864.jpg


WD - this one bleached out from an Alk swing but it's coming back with pinks this time
IMG_9867.jpg


JF Fox Flame - I've had this for a couple years. It was a good size colony before a series of tank disasters that left me with only a bit encrusted on the plug. Funny thing is that it was dark purple with green polyps so I thought it was my bonsai... finding it's actually the FF was a fun surprise. It's really starting to take off now

TSA Bill Murray - I bought a tiny frag of this online and it browned out in shipping and has stayed like that without growing for over a year. FINALLY it encrusted and is coloring up!

Got myself another Bottlebox, always one of the BEST purchases! I wanted bright and polyp-y with at least one fast grower... most of these aren't on his website, so if anyone has one I'd love to see yours!

Well the **** keeps piling on... I had to go out of town because my grandma was in the hospital, then I took care of her while she was dying and then had to deal with the funeral.. all horrible. Of course my Aussie gold died (no idea why) and my zoa shipment was delayed while I was gone

After 10 days FINALLY get to go hone, but to an ice storm. Power is out for 3 days, and I heat bags of water to try keeping the temp up. Even with a propane heater in the room and swapping bags every 30 mins (24hrs a day) I can only keep the tanks around 60 degrees. Power comes on and things look angry/faded, but other than my SCOP everything looks ok

I check my parameters and my alk dropped 9.1 to 8.5, so not bad. 2 days later I check and it’s 7.4!!! Turns out my doser failed. Guessing my sps that survived prom won’t after this added stress. ***

I haven’t updated this for a long time! I created an Instagram account for my tsnk(s) so I’ve been posting things there. Instagram.com/justanotherreefer

But here’s an updated FTS from a couple weeks ago.

It’s fun to see how much the sps are filling in. Less fun to see my zoas aren’t doing as amazing.., I made a stupid mistake of replacing ALL of my long overdue T5 bulbs at once with acclimating snd it ended up melted most of my high end zoas. On the plus side it made my jawbreaker spit out 4-6 new babies lol
