The Blonde Naso tang really enjoys the much higher tank vs his old confines. Lots of swimming up and down and doing laps back and forth

I built another arch and added a bit more rockwork to give the fish more hiding spots. I took this pictures in the middle of cleaning the glass, please excuse the dirt and grime.

Please excuse the mess, I just finished moving a bunch of corals into the new tank and took the video before cleaning up. King Achilles also made the move today!



I had my first real "Oh, no!" moment. I dipped all of the corals coming out of the old system before they went into the new system. I dipped my DFS Pink Panther little colony for just a couple minutes like all of the other coral. Except when I removed it from the dip it really smelled bad......and totally lost all of its color :( . Hope it pops back in a couple weeks.

My wife had a hair appointment last night and it could not have come at a better time. I had ordered some aquarium room wall decals and they arrived yesterday and I was able to put them up while my wife was gone.....I may have gone a little overboard.













My wife came home while I was in the middle of putting up the Kraken decals, I caught her taking a video of it all. I think she sent it to her friends to show them how awesome her husband is.

Slowly but surly I am transferring components from the old system to the new system. Over the past few days I got the apex setup, dosing pumps, auto water change, 2xtunze controlled via apex, kalk dosing and carbon reactor. Trying to manage the wires and tubes is quite a bit of work. I will get the Alkatronic running in the next couple of days.




Also added a light to the refugium.
