hah think it's being able to finally have the windows open and up that PH
Roger that. I will likely be dialing down my kalk dosing soon as well. I track CO2 and the difference is very real with the windows cracked and the wind changing direction. No longer downwind of NYC.

Not much growth this month at all. Had a mishap on day 1 and accidentally did a water change with RO, almost lost it completely. Thankfully it's regrown all of it's tips (my pink caddy hasn't been so lucky, still struggling) but I've lost nearly to months of growth. It's the worst time for that to happen too, as the frag had just began growing new branches ;Facepalm Enough pity party, here's the frag.

Hoping that growth will tick up in the next month or so. Luckily all of my acros survived the mishap earlier this month, so I hope they will all rebound.

Seems that my Bonfire is none the worse for wear given my ATO flood and subsequent salinity dip. I've had no RTN (fingers crossed) on anything but I do have some tip damage on a few other acropora.

The first couple months of the contest, this piece was growing like crazy, straight up. Since then pretty much just bulking up. Color still nice. Wish I could take better pictures.

Another buzzer beater this month. I can’t get the colors to come thru in the pic very well but it is coloring up nicely. It typically has really good pe. I’m seeing some growth but I’m still waiting for it to really take off.

Here's my October pic. It's 10:48 here so hopefully R2R isn't in a time zone that reflects after midnight.

And here it is back in water. The fragged area is recovering pretty well.

I almost skipped this month because I got a new frag that is consuming all of my time. Constant water changes - on my floor!

November entry. Growing sideways and taller. Encrusting still. I had to take it from a different angle with the ruler. So....... Close ups and a ruler shot
