Frag tank almost done few more flat rocks being cured, got the frag racks. Just waiting on some fish. Picked up a Dracula goby, and a swiss guard basslet. Only other fish I want for the frag tank is the chaoti leopard wrasse. Taking my time with finding that one, majority of the leopards die during shipping so I'm not willing to try that unless I take one home myself.

LOL I tried to take my hammer to frag it and it doesn't fit under the large bandsaw. Usually euphyllia skeleton is very very brittle but this guy I couldn't even chip away a branch with large bone cutters so I had to order a dremel.

I'll have to get a photo of all the rainbow montis in one shot to tell the references. Theres quite a large amount of people I believe get them mixed up, can definitely offer some security with identificating them.

Lost that one, you guys have no idea what I went through with dinos. I messed up big time with not taking photos/videos of actually how bad it was. Both my tanks would almost flood daily just from the blackness built up on my overflow.

I defeated a horrible case of dinos in 5 days. Shut off all daylight bulbs, and just ran 2 blue+ along with reebrites for 3 days. Felt socks changed daily, and wet skim straight to the drain.

Fast forward about 3 weeks, I lost
Rainbow envy frag
Jf city slicker
Ska jackpot
Budgie (gotten eaten from the coral next to it

Now I never really loose anything, if somethings unhealthy, it doesn't grow. But at that time I made a million changes. Calcium reactor, interceptor, more cured rock, second UV. Do I think it was the dinos, not certain. But clogging mesh socks and overflow teeth every single day couldn't have been a good thing. My tank smelt like someone died until I started wet skimming.
