    Posting mine under blues because the tank is pretty crappy right now. I mean, it is still awesome, and I love it, but the move has taken a toll.

    It’s still an inspiration to me. It’s been a pleasure watching your tank develop and how you approach reefing has been a great learning exp for me as well. Pics of your tank under any lights always welcome

    I have a little cyano kicking from recent overfeeding... went a little crazy getting the CBB acclimated to the tank.

    Thanks! I finally KNOW I am winning by the fact that there are patches where GHA will not grow anymore. :)

    Thanks to all who have posted up so far amazing stuff. Like that I can scroll thru my thread and see these beautiful works in progress as I continue my journey. R2R is full of amazing folks who make this a 2nd home. The only draw back of this is now I gotta follow even more build threads lol

    Hey all Placed an order with @reefcleaners today for some more cuc. Read good things on R2R and Liked being able to plug in my tank what I was dealing with to get recommendations on a crew. Also liked the price 65 bucks shipped.
    John at ReefCleaners answered the requested info super fast. I was even more impressed with the speed of reply when I had trouble cashing out. The sale wouldn’t go thru as site filter thought I was spam. John fixed it in a hurry apparently I’m to quick filling out forms ( kinda proud of that) but emailed and responded and fixed before I could get off the couch.
    Heading my way
    85 dwarf cerith
    25 nassarius
    23 fla Ceriths
    16 nerites
    22 assorted hermits
    Should have em mid week
