Hello friends, I had hoped yo have tank biome report but skunked again. Started out exoexted on June 26,27,31,July 1st then today but only have 12 lines of useless posted so far :( I don’t mind if it takes longer than expected just wish companies or service providers would under promise and over deliver so you don’t get pumped up.
@Scurvy heres a pic of your baby with the lights waning plus cpl random shots

Not the middle of nowhere
I know you’re showing great will power but Salgado has some prime candidates in stock right now.... I know shipping costs re higher than average but as I said before worth it for a healthy fish IMO. Couple of beautiful wrasses, CBB, Not sure what else you’re looking for but I’m having a hard time not ordering and I dont even know where I’d put them! ;)

Happy Monday fellow marine enthusiasts! Going out if my mind staying home while I heal up so took some pics. Mind you wasn’t so bored to get the razor blade out for inside glass :p ;Hilarious

This guy looks to be coloring back up. Had another frag lacing on it darn snails but it’s green instead of grey now at least.

Hi friends bout the only thing cooking on the reef was a WC yesterday and waiting for a co2 scrubber to come in Friday to boost ph a bit. Other than that my pic is up for potm entry 1, think it made it for lack of entries tho as only vote is my own so not much of a feeling of accomplishment there. Practice practice practice.

Irritated today yeah it’s minor not a big deal in the scheme of things but it pushed my ocd buttons. Aquabiomics has this screen to see what’s up with your sample nice! But for ocd me not so good. The current batch status changed report due dates at least 4 times . I’m a believer in under promise over deliver don’t tell me car will be fixed by 2 pm Friday then swap it to Tuesday after ...
They changes the due date with an explanation finally after a thread popped up here expaing delay at sequencing facility will update here as soon as we get data thumbs up great. Monday showed data received and by info they send out its 24 hours to generate reports and here we are 4 days later with reports ready yet I have no report.........
I had questioned them by email as I had weeks ago a report with only 12 lines.....they responded almost 2 weeks later it’s s glitch ty gif telling us...
Still waiting on answer from email Tuesday about real time to expect reports to go out since they missed the 24 hour info they sent.
Look forward to results I know pandemic reeks havoc but just put out better info and I for one would be happy waiting.
Someday will be able to geek out over data they provide eventually . Hopefully will get it before next sample batch is due so I can see effects of any changes I feel need to be made

You know I don't really test, to me that sucks big ones, how can you react a month later to something you might have been adjusting more than a month ago due to a previous report?
I would hate to see an ICP of the twins, testing worries me because people can react too quickly to shifts or a faulty test and maybe find out a month later what they might have done to cascade a minor issue.
Big Simon hug as always dude, you got this. :)

Si totally agree on not chasing numbers. I found the icp test valuable as it showed my metals lacking. ( ps bought some of what you use to add to my tank) This bacteria test is geeky info interested in the bad pathogens for fish and coral and a bit in diversity of the nitro eating bacteria’s compared to other tanks.
Not much to chase other than consider what I’m feeding these colonies.
Love your tank as the diversity is off the hook! I’d imagine it has a much more natural balance of microbes and such because you don’t fiddle needlessly.
My results dropped just a bit ago. On the geek side I have tons of different bac that compare to other tanks well by their standards just quantities of each strain are in a different alignment due to what they eat and it’s availability.
Only change will be adding different bac blends every few months to keep things cooking and work on adding diversity on foods and fauna.
Here’s report they sent for fellow geeks

Nice looking results. Thats positive news for the pathogens all showing zero ray! Besides some balancing to fit their ratio criteria for bacteria, looking good sir! Clear skies ahead brotha!
