One year into Saltwater hobby

I haven't been posting in a while since getting married and all life has been busy. I am going on a year this month that I have belonged to this forum and just wanted to say thank you to all who have helped me along the way If it wasn't for this forum I would have either quit or blew a bunch of money on stuff I didn't need or know how to care for.

Not much has happened with my tank in the past few months I haven't added anything I hit a financial plateau. It is giving my tank time to become seasoned though.

the only thing worth talking about was about 1 month ago my starfish ended up making it past the u-tube and into my overflow box. How I have no idea it either crawled over or squeezed threw the u-tube. No harm done to the star he is still happy as ever.

My sun polyps have grown some branchy leaf looking tree type sprouts I will post a pic when my sister in-law returns my camera.

I started adding Turbo Calcium to my water changes this week about 4 teaspoons to 18gallons of PWC and am testing to see if my Reef Crystals Calcium level bumps up. I had a 2-part solution I was going to use but my Mastiff ate the bottle of part B

Other than that all is well and hopefully now that things have mellowed out I can invest some more time into the site and my tank.
