    I rescued it;). It has taken about 10 months to start grown leaves, and in the past month the leaves are really starting to sprout. I picked it up at the beach we were married at.:)

    Well I tried to get my BTA's out for the reason the were killing everything around them. Got almost all of one out and mutilated the other pretty bad. So not a have a mutated BTA and a piece that looks like they will come back. I am going to still get them out and replace them with a carpet anemone or two carpet anemone that only get to 5 inches for the clown to live in. I also may just pull the trigger and get a niger trigger.

    Today numbers
    Ca 423
    Mg 1400
    Alk 7.7 going to dose again
    phosphates .01
    Nitrates 8ppm going to add a little more life bio fil to the mix to bring them down a tad.

    Jsker,
    Looking forward to your carpet anemone. Never had one over here.

    I've seen ;Wideyed reefers that use ice cubes at the foot of a BTA to get them to release the BTA's foot.

    Your parameters are looking pretty darn good :)

    Once the set there foot, they will stay. With a bear bottom place some large pies of rock on the bottom, once the anemone stops moving from rock to rock then remove the extra rocks.

    Thank you, Major updates or just updates? Since I have left it alone, the system is doing great. I am still waiting for a piece of equipment to be released for the auto water change.
