Crossed for you too. Things are just fine. Still keeping the algae at bay in my 55 from only distilled water use. Derasa clam is still alive, but stressed. Mandarin passed when I cut back on feedings. Survived a riot at work. Got married. You know, the usual stuff people do in a month.

Wow !!! Sounds like quite a month :-/ Congrats on the marriage!!!! ,.. Hope she's a reefer too!! Tank wise , it's always a challenge to keep things at bay ,.maybe mike,Greg ,Doug and some others may have the expertise to ward off disasters before they happen but to us common civilians every day's another adventure just to keep things on a straight line without blowing things up.
Riot at work huh? I'm sure there's a story there somewhere

Always a story buddy. The algae battle is largely from the water source. When I get some time, I'll be looking into the alk stuff and maybe dose some...who knows.

I sure wish your kind words were true in my case. I try to walk a pretty narrow path otherwise I get lost in the woods. Do anything long enough and it starts to look easy.

Dary's tank!

Tank has steadily started to return to " normal" ,.. The green hair algae forest has subsided into a barren wasteland,..the parameters are almost normal again, the corals have seemingly got a boost to them and appear to be healthier and fuller.,all in all everything's heading in the right direction again.
I added a few more brittle stars to the system along with a zoa colony and a couple of Gsp covered rocks to brightenThings up.
The Hanna alk monitor that I recently received from brs has some serious issues and has to be sent back for one that actually works correctly , they were cool about It and I should be receiving my new one onThursday.
I tried taking a few pictures yesterday but under the led's you know how the Pic's come out,...but you'll get the general idea anyhowClick image for larger version
