Thanks Beengirl!! I'm going to stop the stocking (both fish and coral) for right now and see how things develop. Most of the corals are growing very well. My Rainbow and Tricolor Brains are faded and I need to figure out why. My Rainbow Brain has almost no color left.

Found out my heater wasn't working, nor was my thermometer strip. Bought a digital thermometer and found the temperature was at 70F with the heater set at 84F. New heater, and temperature was 77.9F and the heater actually cycles on and off. Kind of disappointing since the original heater was only 6 months old. But problem is solved.

Bad news. My lfs was robbed last night. They took most of the expensive corals (including a Modern that the owner had for over 15 years), and all kinds of equipment. Skimmers, pumps, light fixtures. About the only good news is they didn't vandalize the place. Could have been much much worse. Watching Craigslist, eBay, and the boards for "fire sales" on equipment and coral. The crooks obviously knew what they were doing.

Yea, I talked to the shop tonight. They were overwhelmed but they still have enough "stuff" to keep the doors open and they said it could have been worse. They could have smashed things. They have a large (and loyal) clientele so hopefully someone will get fingered in this. Just sucks. This is a private shop that employs like 5 people. This is their livelihood.

Went to my lfs today. About $15,000 in stolen corals, $5,000 in equipment, some money and two Lionfish. Another local news crew was filming when we got there so he good news is its getting ALOT of local attention. The owner has been through the ringer but he and the crew are in good spirits.
