That's great! I've been on his site a few times but he can be a little pricy. I've debated ordering because of the bad reviews and the pricing. But you gave me hope. Lol

I figure 21 frags for $150 isn't bad. Only lost one tiny one. The hair is out of control now. I spent all morning trying to pull it off the frags, siphon and remove but it's terrible. I add no food, have lots of live rock, and a 4-hour photo period... Hmmm.

I had same algae problem on an acan lord. I thinly it was actually byropsis bit between pulling it and the coral fighting the lord over grew it. They have remarkable algae fighting ability.

Updates and news:

54 gallon tank -> going strong, no issues, no deaths, all is great and growing.

10 gallon frag tank -> only had one frag not make it, and it was a freebie one. All the others are doing great, encrusing and great PE. There is hair algae growing on the frag plugs. I tried to scrape it off with a razor and pull it off, but it only made it 10x worse. I think I need to add a crab or two to help the fight.

Going tomorrow to buy a 29 gallon biocube. Found on CL - talked down to $100. Great shape, but needs one bulb replaced. This is going to be a low-light reef / angler tank!

Off topic:

Found out about (3) hours ago that my identity was stolen, so I've got to try to straighten that out tomorrow. I got a call from my bank today, "Did you go golfing today?" Yes. "Are you in Florida?" Absolutely not. "Okay, well you have nearly $1000 charged on multiple charges from Walmart in Florida from earlier today. Your card is now disabled and your account balance just went negative."

Japan - found out that minimum it is pushed back until the end of summer, and at a max, the program is no longer available and I'll end up in Mexico instead...

We shall see. I will keep everyone posted on any new happenenings as they occur.

Wow that sucks! Hope you get your money back plus more for the stress and problems this caused you.
