Thanks Paul! I may have to try that! I dosed microbactor and it helped a little, I kind of think I need to do do some very aggressive water changes (like back to back 15 gallon changes...only because that's as much as I have room to make at one time).

Off work for spring break and on a count down to summer! Gave my tanks some much needed TLC and starting to make plans for additions over the summer. A few updated shots of the tank.

Autumn, I have a Kessil 160w. I probably should have sprung for the 360w at the time for better coverage, but I didn't. This give great lighting for the most of the tank but I do lower light corals on the side edges.

Looking pretty good there! Nice to see you showing those off.

About your light, I might be springing for a new light - probably, but figuring which one is the hard part. Before you mentioned the 360W, for what sized tank again, 14G???

I lost 3 RFA a little while back. 2 a few days apart they began losing elasticity/body and then and the other within a couple weeks later. They were seemingly the same types. I have a couple other types still now. Ones that are like warty ones which are really huge and the one fancy one I got last year, still rather small 2-3in.

Any idea how long they live?

Not exactly sure why, but wondering if it was my slack behavior of letting the water evaporate for a week then adding the RO water back in and then - other than the salinity increasing some during the week the tanks still got pwc about 7-10 days like always.

Pretty soon I am getting a upgrade size tank when I find the right deal, maybe a 30-50G. I got a decent used 90G SW tank with Current USA light then chickened out with the thought of maintenance. It is still in the garage. Really just can't make up my mind. :/
