Does your skimmer have an overflow in the collection area? A tube to an empty milk jug would do the trick.

Yes it does have a "nipple" which I can unplug and hook up a hose which came with the skimmer which can lead into a milk jug. But I am not using that yet, I just tuned it back to skim drier, so it fills up in about 1-week.

Thanks Mike. Its tough to keep nice color in sps. Now they just need to keep growing. I think that same shot will look pretty awesome when all 3-are colonies. They started out as small 1" or so frags.

They are looking good. Is the pink lemonade from ATL?

You might want to move them away from each other a little more. They look pretty close. I did the same thing and as the corals grew I had to move them.

Thanks ccCapt! No, the Pink Lemonade is the Tyree/Reeffarmers version. I really like this one because it holds a very vibrant yellow and is not turning green on me. The polyps are nice and pink. The PL and the Red Planet are a little close, but as of now the RP is tabling away from the PL. We'll see what happens as they get bigger. I may have to eventually move them like you said.

I have made more equipment upgrades in the past few weeks. I purchased two dosing pumps for alk/cal. I also I purchased a controller to automatically dose alk/cal, turn my heater on/off, turn my fans on if the tank gets to a certain temp etc etc etc. This is the one I got: http://www.reefgeek.com/manufacturer...eptune_Systems

I also upgraded my ATO by simply adding a AquaLifter and some airline tubing going into a 5-gallon jug.

I also installed the addition of two more fans.

One nice thing about this is that it helps to automate my system and keep it more stable. After all stability is key to the success of sps.

I have pictures of this stuff, I'll try to post later. I got my wife a new camera for Christmas and we havent installed the software yet. I'm glad she wanted a new camera, because now I can take way better pictures of my coral and fish....just don't tell her that.
