Just an update, not to much going on. Been wanting to go blow some $ on some soft and LPS, but inflation is a real thing.

Been a minute since my last post. Have rehomed some corals and had to rescape. Thanks for checking it out! About to have to tear it down next may for another move. Don’t know where we are going next but it’s the price you pay in the military. Hope you like it, thanks for viewing!

Finally got around to getting the ATO in. It would have been sooner but initially when I started the iRobot ran off with the magnets when I was doing something else. Finally found them and got it installed. Why oh why did I wait so long to get this!
Also, added a Pearlscale butterfly. The last one succumbed to a fluke out break last year.
Lastly Secret Santa came thru! Got 2 jars of eco pods and PO4 test reagents

Good morning everybody!

Just an update.
Things have been going good. Tank survived a guest tank sitter for emergency trip home to Louisisana. Although now dealing with cyano outbreak. I believe the culprit is an uptick in No3. I keep them at <10 ppm and the jumped to 40 while I was away. Po4 stayed at close to open at .02. So big WC today and preparing for DISNEY TRIP tomorrow. Youngest is excited!

Be careful with those viraspectra. they put out a lot more light than they appear to. If possible see if you can borrow a par meter locally. I just had to turn mine wayyy down

Thanks! Always a working progress

The viparspectras are gone. One shorted out, so just put my black boxes back in and added the T5s. And our local club does have a par meter. So when I added the T5 I used it to dial it in.
So glad I did!
Thanks for viewing!
