I would love to know the names of your corals.
OrionN - I will try to post the names of the corals. Problem is many of them had color shifts or were dying off at some point so when I fragged them I forgot what they were. Fish I can do for sure...lol.

Love the hammer/wrasse shot.
. Matt - Some are really starting to take off. The milli at the top is one of the fastest growers. My problem is I keep having color shifts so I don't know what is what...lol. It's back to the ole school coral identification for me. Pretty blue tipped coral....lol.

Jesse - hope the frags are coming along in your tank. I am starting to see some growth from the ones you gave me last time you stopped by.


Its been a while since my last update but things are plugging along nicely. I am a little behind on updating as I was getting ready for vacation. I am finally back from Mexico and before I left I picked up a few new items. My top on my frag tank stopped working like a week before my trip and panic ensued. I have frequent power outages in my area so I brought a Ecotech Battery Backup before my vacation for some circulation. This thing is much bigger than I expected and its heavy. It seemed to have done its job while I was in Mexico as well. I was fighting some phosphate issues so I picked up the NoPox as well. I will start using in a few days once things get settled from vacation. I had both tanks on an auto timer for twice a day and the phosphates did not rise much more than they were before I left so I am pretty happy about that. My next update with be with the t5s I am adding for the center of the tank were the LEDs are not really reaching since they are not that high off the tank.

I had a dino bloom and struggling at the moment. The green slimer is gone, one of the acros on a plug is done now too, smh!

It was the 40 lbs of carib life rock I added. It said no cure time, but I dont know if that meant no cycle time? In any event im struggling to keep my animals alive....such a rookie move smh!!!!

Jesse,
Sorry to hear about the issues man hopefully the tank will pull through. Don't throw them away. I have had ones that looked pretty bad and from only a few polyps come back. Move them to a non direct flow area and hopefully a few polyps will survive. Slow and steady wins the race...lol.

I also added a new fish to to QT on 08/02/2019...another addition to the wrasse collection. The wife has named him Orion. He came in around 2.5 inches but has been eating very well. He is eating everything I have put in the tank so that is a good sign.

My Flame Wrasse is really starting to color up and I was finally able to get a decent picture of him. It won't be long before I can get a better picture of him. He has started to to be very bold.

Jesse,
Thanks man. I think I am running out of places to put corals now...lol. I need more fish now. Hopefully your corals will bounce back. I have been in the same place as you. Make sure if you have not done so already you dose some amino acids.
