Well so far he's still alive. He was upside down in the sump, now he's right side up, breathing, and looking around when I put the flashlight on to give him a look. Maybe he'll recover.. Way too early to say for now. But he's sitting right side up on top of my bio media in about 3" of water, so he's fully submerged but doesn't exactly have room to swim. I figured it would give him the best opportunity to rest up. I'm hoping he doesn't get restless and try and jump into my return pump or something stupid.

Fingers crossed that he pulls through!

Might be time to upgrade soon!
If only I had room. I will be converting my frag tank I to SPS and acans only soon so that should help. But when my bonsai structure arrives I'll be able to place at least 60 corals on the "rockwork"

Sorry to hear about the su burst. Hope he finds a way to recover. :(

That list is just.. insano.
He's in the frag tank. I've had a melanurus recover so he'll either live out his life lounging around in the frag tank or recover enough to get back in the tank. He's not eating yet, but we'll see.

Also, I have a shroom from Legendary Corals called the Insano Bounce lol.

This is just about 85% of my SPS.

Looking very happy and healthy, I also can't wait to see the structure in place. :)
Me too!

It's been a long time coming.. it will look instantly better lol. I'll be able to get some coral placed and the algae will be gone for a bit

Following and excited for doing a shallow reef build myself except planning to go mixed reef
My tank is technically mixed reef, as the frag tank is connected and full of LPS and softies!

Mixed reefs are incredibly easy. You're not supposed to chase numbers for SPS, that's a myth from yesteryear.
