Wow Brian, sorry to hear about your clams. I know you went through a rough event not long ago and I know how much this must bug the crap out of you. I hope everything else pulls through.

I'm very sorry about the clams but glad everything else seems ok. I agree, it's great to have a family member to help out!

Hi Brian. Sorry to hear about the clams. Keep an eye on the sps too. Just give it time and you'll have the tank back better than it was.

Thanks again everyone. I do feel somewhat fortunate...not too long ago I added some pretty spendy Aussie Acan Lords and Aussie Duncans...both seem to be recovering nicely. Believe it or not I am pretty thankful...it could have been worse, I guess.

Thanks Ellisz! I have chalked it up to "the price of admission" for keeping reef tanks but it still sucks. Things are looking up now however.

Water will always be an issue. When I set up the 180, I did not put carpet under it. I don't know how ofter I have got water on the floor in the sump room either. Good thing concrete does not care. Losing livestock sucks though.

Ya know...I think the carpet under my tank is the worst thing. My new stand has a poly-carbonate bottom with 1/2in legs. It would sure be a lot easier to clean up without the darn carpet under it.

In my last house, I had to cut the carpet out around the tank due to a drain getting clogged and getting the carpet wet under the stand. When I sold the house, I had a company come out and patch the carpet with a 4ft x 2ft section of spare carpet. You could not tell the it had ever been cut.
