Well, it's finally happening. My Fiance and I just bought our new home and my LFS texted me last night and my Reefer 525XL is here! I will begin setting it up Friday and hopefully will have everything moved from my Reefer 250 to the new tank by the end of the weekend! I will update you all Friday when I begin on the stand!

We're almost tank twins. I've got a lot of the same equipment as you. Is the chaeto growing nicely even with it being a newish tank and medium bioload? I'm really hesitant to get mine started so early. Mine has only been up and running for about 3-4 months.

Doesn't seem to be having much of a problem. I am feeding a bit heavier just to get the nutrients up.

Well, Everyone is doing much better after nearly a month at the new house. The corals are pretty much all opened up (zoas are taking a bit longer), and I got my UV Sterilizer all hooked up and running. I mis-Diagnosed my Dinos and it is actually what appears to be green/blue Cyano. I have begun dosing H202 in hopes of fighting it back, and I moved the powerheads around and increased flow.
