Talking about miracles, my new tank is being delivered today some time btwn 10a-5p. I'm waiting to start my new build thread until the tank arrives in one piece. I feel like i would jinx myself if i started the build thread before i got the tank... in one piece. Now who needs a miracle today? ;)

The cups were what all my frags were in, instead of consolidating everything to dip I just eyeballed a dose for each of them. As you can see I had great consistency! I used Seachems “reef dip”, seems like pretty standard iodine.

ignore the bottle, totally unrelated apple cider vinegar ;Hilarious
I knew it looked familiar. My husband makes a barbecue sauce to use when he smokes a pork roast on the BGE. Apple cider vinegar is one of the ingredients. Made one last weekend & it’s amazing ;Happy

There's a guy here on R2R that has a build thread with a 15,000 or so gallon tank. This isn't the same one is it? Cool to look at, but i wouldn't want to maintain it.

Bill Wann's is 20,000k, I think. He cleans the coralline off the viewing pane in scuba gear with an underwater air sander. LOL! I definitely won't have to worry about those issues.

For those of you that QT or treat your diseased fish, Humblefish posted on LARC this evening that the Chloroquine Phosphate has been found to be effective on the Coronavirus, so supplies may vanish quickly. He was recommending to stock up now (if you can) if that is a med you use. Just passing on the word. I don't usually QT or treat sick fish. I have been extremely lucky in the past.

Or stock up now and resell later as a morally bankrupt scalper :oops:

New tank came and have been bz with that. The anodized aluminum frame is awesome with the magnetic panels. It took more time to take the stuff out the box and packing materials than it did putting it together--maybe 10 minutes. Don't even ask me about putting together the Waterbox cabinet. Here's a few pics. And yes, the sump is in backwards.;)

Do you think that slowing down the water through your sump benefits the chemistry of your tank?
