Dang Don awesome! I need lessons from you
Ray, looking at your status quote, are you a Dylan Thomas fan or a Back to School fan? LOL!

Moving macro around so it all gets light and found a worm, amphipods are coming back and plenty of pods. Maybe a female mandarin and a second pipefish will be possible. Time will tell

Filled a 2.5 gallon bucket tight of Chaeto and bunch of sea lettuce so I can get a glimpse of rock.

PO4 .06 from .08
NO3 15-20 from 20-25
I did 20% water change to lower NO3 to see if the fuge can keep up

A few pics and a mostly FTS. The star lounging while getting sun tan on the return cracked me up

Mag reagent leaked so that I couldn’t test. Normally I test 1465 - 1470 Trident 1487

Ha thank you but I still have always to go. I do think I have a great stocking of fish. Now I need to figure out corals

Your fuge is making me want our tank up and running!
All the cool things and we are driven by the power of a fuge.

Got home from a couple days away from home. Spent the time with a few great people I met on R2R. @NY_Caveman thanks for having us and the tour of the city! @Raege @RichtheReefer21 it was a blast hanging with you Kathy and Kalisha as always.
RichtheReefer21 hooked me up with a nice gift for the tank but you will have to wait and see.

I fully enjoyed getting to see and feed my fish after being away.
Not the best pick with the flow on but couldn’t resist top down of the Anemones

A week ago I got a few zoa’s frags and found them scattered on the sand bed. I’ll blame hermits for it. After collecting they Are little grumpy but took photos anyway

Great to have you for a couple of days, Don. Tank and pictures look really happy! I am sure they are glad to have Daddy home.
I would like to think they are glad Daddy is home lol

Was a sweet trip for sure! Those zoas are hawt!
Thanks Rich

Looking good Don ! !

Those blue hornets look like what I was sold as yodas???
Thanks Keith.
Just looked at Yodas and they are similar. Hard to tell from photos on internet. Both are equally nice.

Hard to believe you didn’t have luck with them. Seems they don’t care about flow light or nutrients in my tank. Other corals it effect even the Duncan’s but zoa’s rarely miss a beat.

Those are beautiful!
Thank you
