Well not much going on out here , I finally replaced my Di resin in my Rodi unit ( overdue ) and she's now showing the big 0's going out into the pwc barrel ,... The ats algae which started off a little slowly has been producing gobs of the harvestable green gooey stuff ,... I nuked a few aptasia the other day with the new electric " wand" and so far no grow back that I can see ,.. Seems like there's been a shortage of the high capacity gfo the last few weeks thru various vendors online ,..ill have to check the status of that sometime here soon , I'm thinking of replacing my five/six year old mag 12 return pump with a new one sometime before my next Hawaiian trip , she's been running along without a hitch for sooooo long without any cleaning or any interruptions that I'm getting worried that one day she'll just get calciumed up and quit , more than likely that'll be the time I board the plane too leave ,...otherwise ,all good

Great! My Triton testing got me back into good shape again. I vastly underestimated the amount of calcium and Mg a acro colony that weights thirty pounds can absorb.

At thirty pounds you're lucky it doesn't raid your refrigerator

It is rather amazing to watch a organism create that much rock from seawater. That's 30 pounds of calcium and Mg it's absorbed over 5 years of growth.

Dary's tank!

I think it doesn't like steak very much. It just loves minerals though. It is a amazing process that we get to see every day from beginning to now, something no diver experiences.
