Tons of great images, but this one is the best!
Thank you!! He's my little helper. I have three boys. He is my youngest. My other two boys enjoy looking at the tank but my youngest loves helping me. He is always following me into the garage to help fill up the ATO, etc. He will be my little reefer when he gets older.

Finally had a chance to order the Trident. I ordered it today with an extra reagent kit. It will be in early next week!! Will be working on the fish room this weekend getting ready for it. I also have plans to move my controller and EB832 to a new spot with a mounting board, etc.

Coral growth update. Growth really starting to take off now. Good growth weekly. Newly added dry rock has delivered a lot of GHA. I picked up a Sea Hare to help.

Busy weekend. Moved my calcium reactor to it's new location. Set up the stand for my new frag tank setup. Nothing crazy, just a 20 gallon for now. Need to finish plumbing this week and get the light installed. Always a good thing when you need to install a frag tank.

Leaving for Cape Hatteras today for some needed vacation. Tank is getting used to running on it's own now. Love my Apex, cameras, and automation. Hopefully when I get back next week I will find some good growth.

I will be stopping by in Raleigh on my way back and picking up another 10 sticks. My tank is going to be filled in no time.
