Yeah, but $1k on an AC repair from an AAA certified mechanic plus a 1 year guarantee on the work isn't too bad for a compressor.

They'll also bleed the freon, look for any leaks, repair, refill with freon, etc etc.

The downside is what if another problem caused the compressor to go -- shouldn't be the case. Especially with my car... But you never know.

Yeah it would be nice if it were just... Here, lol!!!
You should cover the branches with your higher end zoas and such and save the frag holes for the sps colonies that would look cool
I got rid of most of my zoas to make room for SPS. They're growing happily in a friends tank. My frag tank will be nothing but SPS soon as well.

Once the new structure is in I'll be able to to put my acans in the display tank.

I had a mini crash while I was on a 2 and a half week vacation and lost a bunch of my sps. I decided to go with high end zoas to add color and lower requirement corals to the tank and then add acro’s back in slowly. Well I got a bit of a zoa bug so now I have a bunch of zoas and a few nice acro’s in the tank. I’m trying to decide on a a frag tank as I want my current tanks to be for display and get the frags out of there

I have been using aqua vitro fuel and trying coral candy for lps and phyllia lately and having good results especially from the acans.

Yeah one of them will be mine in like a month LOL, I'm excited. I've never kept a nem, so if it dies I'll cry a little. My friend won't hook me up with another $1500 freebie haha.

I got a sample from KoR expo in Groton, CT. Did some browsing research and found this. The results have been great, and the concept of a variety of food particle sizes it makes sense.

Thanks for sharing, I think.
