    Some right after the storm. I was lucky did really well no power issues. I'm happy at 3 months or so getting some extensive cori
    I am looking forward to it. My nutrient levels are fairly low, I may have to feed a little heavier to support the screen.

    Here is my quarterly ICP.
    @Randy Holmes-Farley, is there anything I should be concerned about? Also I just saw the thread from this weekend, should I be concerned about the accuracy?

    My photography skills are a little rough. Just got an Olympus TG 5, so I hope from late December on, pics will get better. I will be happy to take any pointers. Some more October:

    In November I got my @Floyd R Turbo L4R4 algae scrubber. It has been producing very well. Alk is staying super stable with my GEO calcium reactor from 7.6-8.

    I built a custom shelf for the scrubber out of pvc and an expanded pvc shelf.

    Love the dimensions of the tank. Great job on the stand--it'll be beautiful once skinned. Everything looks to be taking shape. Sorry to hear about the storm and damage.

    I had a mild crypto outbreak, I think from an un'qted coral, lost 2 sharknose gobys and 1 anthias. I plan on letting things calm down before I replace anything. Here are some Nov-Dec tank shots.

    2 clams added around a month ago, both seem pretty good.

    OK so I lied really badly about keeping this thread updated lol, I think Rev has me beat on updates. So far I haven't done a great job on maintenance especially in my sandbed, but my fuge and Turbo Aquatics scrubber has kept me out of real trouble so far. IMG_20180213_165314.jpg

    Goni growing well.
