lights came on just a bit ago. Unfortunately looks like I may have lost one of the glittering gold acros, the rest aren't happy. I need test kits for po4 ca mag now. Oh well, more sad about the losing the WWC slimeball.
I'll take a pic.

As you can see the two glittering gold acros on the left are about dead. The poor WWC slimeball looks dead already and the MC purple mille is not as dark as last night but definitely not white or dead yet by any means.
Also you can see in the background everything else has color and alive still.
These are just my first observations so far.

Man that sucks sorry to hear that. Let us know what your params are once you test them. I don't know enough about acro so wonder if maybe they are still OK? Maybe someone else will know. Only thing I can think of is a bit alk swing.

I will leave them for another day or so and watch them. On the plus side the rastas are slowly starting to open up. I did drop the light intensity 7% today
I'll have to get on the list for the par meter and get a good reading of what I have going on in this tank. By the time I get it my 50 MIGHT be setup by then too.

Another thing, I don't have anything to feed corals and I don't have fish (no fish poo) so there's really nothing for them right now.

And the trio of flame cardinalfish aren't on DD anymore.

Sounds like you need some fish! I picked up a couple of fish today. Going to go post it on my build thread now. They are still acclimating but you know me, got to snap some pics.

@Philipgonzales3 I found the PERFECT gift for my daughter's 9th birthday yesterday. Didn't have the cash on me so on May 6th I'm ordering this absolutely gorgeous biscuit starfish.

Wow! That thing is sweet. It doesn't even look real, it's so perfectly symetrical. When I first saw the pic I thought it was a decoration or something.

I'll likely have to feed it for quite awhile but definitely willing to do that they're gorgeous.
Funny thing is it was going from side to side in his frag tank during the swap and heard many different people ask how much it is because it was in the $20 area then later the $65 area in his frag tank lol.

Man those are so nice! Mine are teeny tiny compared to those monsters you got there! Lol.

You see mine between the Torch and the laptastrea? ...yeah...me either. Lol.

I think they are growing a new polyp though so will be fun to see them grow.

I figured out today the temp controller is way off on this heater. It's a digital finnex heater and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I had to set it to 83 degrees to get a tank temp of 77.
The temp was 72-73 degrees before I figured this out.
I agree, need more time and some fish too.

Bummer thast sucks. I have 3 thermometers in my tank including the one on the Ranco controller. One of them makes noise if it goes out of range.
