Oh, their small fish, that's good. How long do you think they will be in there? I really wish I could do a qt, but my mom said no more bodies of water :/

Thats a good idea! Wish I had some extra space in my sump, I'd put a rack for low lights in it!

Buffy, just wanted to say you are one of my inspirations as well though I don't much. I love you persistence and determination to do all that plumbing. If I didn't have my DH to do it for me, I probably wouldn't have continued. It just seems so hard sometimes to keep up with everything and your plumbing looks better than mine! Don't let my DH find out I said that. Of course he was only doing it as a favor. I'm sure I'd he had been doing it for himself, it would have turned out better. I am just glad he was willing to do it. I'm still looking for a good used skimmer that will fit since I made the mistake of doing the sump before getting a skimmer ugggh

Anyway hang in there! You are doing great in my opinion (for whatever that's worth).
Diana

I'm thinking about a month that they will be in QT. I didn't QT the corals or the Butterflyfish. I was hoping he'd be eating the Aiptasia by now but now I just wish he'd eat.

Thank you, I'm just doing what I can, when I can. It just takes me longer than others.

Update

So the fish are all in QT except butterfly, the 2 corals that came with them are in DT. I just received 5 corals from CoralMorphologic.com today but I had surgery today (nothing major - but they did have to knock me out for it) so I haven't acclimated them or dipped them yet. I'm struggling to type this cause I'm still kinda out of it.

I finally have the final piece to my overflow puzle but I don't trust myself with that pvc primer and cement right about now.

The corals are still in the box in the dark. I will acclimate them as soon as my daughter takes me home (I wasn't allowed to be alone til tonite),

After that I will take some pictures with my camera and upload and post.

Thank's everyone for following, ALL of YOU have been an AWEFULLY HUGE help and inspiration to me also. I coulnd not have done any of this if it wasnt for you.......my fish family. Thank you again....I hope the buttery salty popcorn was good, sorry you had to BYOB,

I just recently saw that too.

I just glued a magnetic to a small piece of egg crate but the magnet is not strong enough and didn't hold.

Grrrr I can't find my camera :-(

QT has high ammonia, (1.0) - 50% water change okay to do or is that too much?

You kind of have to weigh the two evils, yeah it's pretty large....but rising ammonia is pretty bad too. Match temp. ph and salinity and it should be ok. You may want to start a daily routine of pwc's or find another way to control the ammonia and nitrite.
