Oh boy my thread is in a dire need of an update! A lot has happened over these many months.

Coral Growth
I faced a terrible battle with brown jelly disease which wiped out much of my euphalliya to my chagrin... many a heartbreak with coral loss, but I did have a lot of success. One of which was my digitata: Beautiful polyp extension and growth.

The famous cup anemone finally split!

Tank Inhabitants:
My fish list has dropped to just the pair of clowns, flame angel and yellow tang. Clean up crew was murdered by the trigger, so after a long run with the guy he had to get the boot. Added a beautiful sand sifting star to the clean up crew!



Equipment list updates:
Finally, finally, finally.... I got myself an auto top off (Tunze Universal 3155) , and can't for the life of it understand why I did not get one earlier!!! It works like a charm.
