Dary's tank!

A little update ,... All livestock and corals doing very well I'm happy to say ,... I decided to switch up salt mixes a few weeks back and as a experiment I'm trying out some kent reef salt in lieu of the reef crystals,... It's a little early to tell but so far so good.
Anyone who has followed this tread knows about me and my Martian corals , The replacement "Martian" coral I got a few weeks back has seemingly intensified its kryptonite like color and seems to be doing great ( fingers crossed ) ,.. They are without a doubt my favorite coral so I decided to buy the only other one I could find on the internet and with luck it'll be here tomorrow.
I also decided to switch out two of my early evolutionary ,slightly underpowered stark led pendants with two of the new razor pendants,...I plan on using one of the older units as a middle pendant with a razor on each side ,...I'll also prob utilize one of the other units as a sump / refuge unit .(?) maybe,,... They ( razors ) are on order and should be here at the end of the week.
The house that we have rented right on the kohopo tide pools just outside of Hilo was hit pretty hard by the recent Hawaiian hurricane so right now with only 40 + days to go we're on standby to see what can be done to repair the home ., and if we can use it if at all :-/. , that kind of sucks

I had to put a new roof on the house after a storm took out the power for three days. No new fish for awhile for me.

We had a 80mph vertical gust that knocked the stuffings out of our town. Yes, the old generator ran for three days.

Been a good year for storms, that's for sure. We had a tornado by me and we haven't had one since 84... That and several other microbursts. Glad no one is hurt, that is what is really important. You and those chalices!

I agree that the weather has been one for the books.... As long as no one gets hurt ,the fish tanks are and sound , the beer remains ice cold than we all can come out to fight another day !!!
