Chicken to glue...

Did some landscaping instead. Pulled out an old weedy garden with a 2" layer of clay from the fence-posts sandwiched between 2 layers of landscape fabric... shoveled out the clay then roto-tilled the bed and applied sod.

Replaced my Curve 5 with an RSK-300.
Saw it on ebay at a good price and want to try their DC skimmer controller. I'll work on getting the ReefRun controller and DC pump, cap & sensor upgrade later.
The Curve 5 just wasn't cutting it. I should have probably looked for an RSK-600 instead.

Also took out my ReefWave45 and soaked/scrubbed it. It was covered in bubble algae. Cant' wait to put the yellow-line foxface in the frag tank.

Also was stn-ing some corals in the frag tank so I checked out the ReefWave and found that from 10 in the morning to 8 at night it wasn't running... So I changed my password for that and re-did my schedule.

Also chipped 2 more patches of the invasive Palys off some frag tank rock and put them in the 'QT' tank.
Just one more large patch to go.

Best pH graph of adding the CO2 Scrubber yet. I just finished my RSK-300 scrubber (re-did the file so its easier to customize for folks) Yesterday late... It really helped overnight.

You need to set the trend, not just follow it!

keeping the trend I set a few days ago. I dont want to keep setting trends because then stability goes out the window! ;)
