Took some iPhone pics through the Avast Porthole.
These looked much better when I posted them from my phone. Not so much at full size on the desktop.
Frag tank clean up. Smashed this up to make 30+ frags of CB Bling Bling Cyphastrea and WWC Copperhead. Also started a new cyphastrea encrusting project for one of the guys over at Avast Marine.
Couple of night light pics after feeding Reef Chili
What tool did you use to Frag the acan?
Diamond blade dremel. Was lucky there were easy to reach polyps.
Good news: My ATI 8x54 arrived
The bad news: This happened to one of my MP40s
Luckily I had a spare wet side lying around.
Just went through your build! Awesome build man!! Inspiration for sure!
Just read through, Great looking build ! ! !
Can I ask? What are you using to attach your frags? Looks like the Polymorr stuff you used for the rocks, is it? If so how's the working time under water?
I create a polymorph 'cast' of the rock, then use that to mount the frag. Push hot polymorph in to the rock where i want the frag to be mounted. At the same time i make an indent for the frag. Once it cools i remove the polymorph (it does not stick to the rock) and I mount the frag to it. Once the frag is mounted to the casting with super glue gel, I mount the cast to the rock with the same super glue gel. Because the polymorph cast is a perfect mold of the rock, it will glue in easily.
Hope that makes sense.
A few growth shots:

Awesome job man! Keep updated on Frankenstein rock!
I'm having bleaching issues since adding the 8 bulb ATI. I initially set the new light a little higher than the 4 bulb unit. I also cut the photoperiod by three hours. Since the bleaching is tank wide and affecting both SPS and LPS, I have raised the light another 6" and have cut the photoperiod to 3 1/2 hours on the six main bulbs. I kept the 2 bulb channel @ 12 hrs for the actinic bulbs.
Will slowly extend the photoperiod as things recover.
