    I think the greens are green implosion palys.

    Can't kill them... I tried every way I could think of. I replaced the rocks and reattached the acros and somehow they came back. I must've missed some unseen baby's. I had one huge rock 100% covered in them. That rock sat outside in Florida weather for a year. Put it in my grandson's tank and one pops up. They're just as bad as aptasia if not worse.

    The only real luck I've ever had getting rid of aiptasia was to pull the rocks after taking pictures of each rock where they're at and shooting boiling water at them and sucking them out with a baby aspirator. The blue bulb type. If you can get a copperband to live they also do a great job

    Thank you all. I was joking about sending me stuff. It's going to be crazy in a few days. I don't sleep much nowadays and this is going to bring it to a new level lol.

    You will never sleep even after they move out! Just got a call from my 20 yr old daughters husband that she had a seizure at work and is in the hospital! She is coherent now but they're going to be running tests. They're in Hawaii so there's no way I could even go be a mom and see what the heck is going on...

    Thank you Yes but not as severe. But she's ok now. They sent her home. They think she has P.o.t.s. otherwise known as soldiers heart or ortho static tachycardia. So now she's going to be tested for it. This poor kid has so many medical conditions and some that they have had trouble naming due to the other conditions and this is one of them. She will be 20 on Saturday. She has a wonderful husband to look out for her and that does make me feel a little better with her being so far away. He is a Sargent in the Army Blackhawk specialist and they'll be moving to VA in April for V.I.P. and pilot training. They dated since she was in 9th grade and he was in 11th so he's always known what he was getting into. Such a good hearted young man :)

    Back to the subject... My retrofit will be delivered today! I still have other work to do before running it on the 45g. The tank still isn't wet yet and I'm hoping to get to adding water by tomorrow night.

    Thank you :)

    I've switched out the old black box LED panel with the new SB panel yesterday. I love these lights, what a difference! I'm doing my canopy cut out to fit the unit in so in a couple of days I should be ready to run the system and see how they look and I'll get back to you.

    I have been very happy with my SBs. Converted from Radion. The SB have better coverage, more par simpler to use, and possibly better spectrum.

    Now all I got to do is get my sump going. I am running 2 canisters at the moment. My old tank cracked and I had to downsize in an emergency. So now time for a new sump that I got to be fitted. But I just had a baby so the sump and the piping is on the back burner.
