Thanks. I'm definitely making a trip to my LFS for my free full testing on my water.

I haven't tested yet but I'm a little confused. I just got home and all of my coral is fully extended. The tank looks really good. Everything seems happy.

Well my water tested good, I may have made it through this one. Not gonna count my chickens till tomorrow. The only thing that was somewhat high was nitrates but they were still acceptable. My water change tomorrow will make me feel better.

On a side note my LFS had their biggest shipment of coral ever. It made it nearly impossible to not blow all of the money I am saving for my 90 gallon reef build this summer. I managed to make it out somehow.

No I didn't get anything. They had some awesome acans though, I am putting my whole fish budget into savings so I can upgrade this summer. I am thinking 90 gallons should do me for now, then I can add some fish like a tomini tang and a fox face. I want to run LEDs on it so its not gonna be cheap and if I don't do it this summer I won't have time till next summer.

Ahh i see! Well i hope all goes well! Just think each week if you buy a coral, say 25 bucks or more. From now till summer youll have quite a pocket full a 125 would be good as well if ur goin 90.. Ur gunna wish you had the extra 35 gallons somewhere unless your sump makes up for it, 125 opens up doors to alot of livestock

Yeah I was gonna go with a 75 gallon since that is a big threshold for livestock, then I decided I might as well go 90 since the lights I am going to buy are the same price for a 75 or a 90 ($475) from rapid led. If I jump to a 120 gallon the lights go up $300. Who ever said money can't buy happiness obviously didn't have a reef tank.

Such a true statement.

So I am just curious, is there any possible way that my power outage could have been good for my tank? I have seen no negative effects however my algae on my glass has been slow to show up and my water looks way clear. My coral have great color and extension. I have no way to explain it.
