Picked up an Acan last week. Settling in well. I started Dosing Alk and Calc. and those numbers are steady at 9.1 and 420. Was dealing with Dinos(You can see on the Acan pic) and i started Dino-X on Friday. Things are starting to clear up already so i'll continue to monitor.

Long time no update...

Tank is doing great got through the uglys for the most part. Got some more coral. Green Frogspawn, Eagle Eye Zoas, & some Artic Zoas. I will take some pictures tonight and try and post. Coral are growing well the monticap has grown nicely and is almost doubled in size. The Green Digitata has added length, however i did hit it once during a water change and broke one of the branches off. More to come...

I ordered 3 Lyretail Anthias from LiveAquaria yesterday. They should be here tomorrow (1 male and 2 female) Going into QT for a month or so before going in here. Need to update my cleanup crew as well. Probably will go with reefcleaners for that duty.

Here are some pictures...
My two clowns and the cleaner shrimp. The big clown is a bully of course and is constantly monitoring where the Wrasse goes. Clown must have caught him at some point cause he is missing one part of his tail. Frogspawn is doing well moving him around a bit to get the best location.

I haven't updated this in a while...Time for a report.

Mostly everything has been steady. I have dealt with a few instances of some hair algae which i have removed with flucanzole. Otherwise I have added some acro's and a chalice. I did end up losing 2 (1 female and 1 male) anthias in QT, but i picked up two females from my LFS as replacements and everyone is doing well.

Biggest project was adding T5s in addition to my AI 52HD which i had made a canopy to house off of that and hung that this weekend.

Mainly i know i have 0 TDS going in, but when i check it a few weeks after i'm over 30 TDS. That has led to algae issues from what seems to be every variety which is painful to look at. Fish wise my large clown when on a protective murder spree (3 total - Carp. Wrasse and two Anthias) so now he is back at the fish store.

With my algae issues i have lost a good bit of coral: Chalice, Red/Green Acan, Green birdsnest, pink birdsnest. It's been a struggle here lately. I did a Triton test which found i had copper and zinc in the tank so that just tops things off. I've never added copper to the tank so i'm thinking it came from my previous fuge light that i had which rusted a bit i think and fell in the tank before i caught it.

Trying to keep my head above water.
