Yeah I know you didn't work 3rd, where I worked thats 2nd shift, for 2-4pm to 10:30-12:30 or till 3-4am with overtime(some were mandatory 12hrs/7days a week). I was just saying how I can relate, you having diff hours/shifts on diff days of the week makes it more crazy.

We're going to need some new pics with the fish soon

Yeah I know....In order to get the fish back in the tank I have to take my frag tank off line and remove everything in it. So I have a lot of work to do just to get to the fish. I guess I better get started....

Well all the fish except for the chromis are in the 120. I don't have time to take any pics and post them right now I have to get ready for work. The blasted Diatoms have started on my sand. I kind of expected this with all the new sand I used and the whole busted bottom issue.

All parameters are with in normal ranges. Nitrate is a little high at 25ppm but I've got more new SW mixing for a PWC tomorrow. I'll get them down. All corals and fish look good as of now. My giant Toadstool is the only coral that is having issues but it was pulled away from the rock it had attached to. I didn't have any choice when the bottom broke on the 150 it was a dash to get everything out. The polyps are starting to extend on it again so I believe it is going to be ok. It will just have to go through a healing process.

Anyway I'll get some pics posted tomorrow of how things look. I have so much work to do in the frag tank it's not even funny. I got some of the stuff a little more organized but it's still a mess in there.

The sumps have not changed from the 72. I'm using the same setup that I had before. The major difference is the total volume of water in creasing by 48g and the amount of water coming out of the 120 going into the sump. I have dual 1200gph overflows on the 120 where I only had a single 1200gph overflow on the 72. The plumbing I built for the 150 is what I'm using on the 120. I have an overflow on either side of the back of the tank to maximize circulation. Both overflows drain into a 1 1/2" manifold and then split 4 ways to go to the sump fuge and skimmer. Currently I'm using 3 of the 4 outlets on the manifold. The fourth is not needed as yet. When I hook up the new pump I'll have to use all of them.

Thats a cool relationship between the clowns and rbta. Makes me want to get a rtba, but I doubt my tank raised clowns would host it anyway. They have never showed any interest in my toadstool or torch polyps.
I am surprised your wife didn't snap a fts too. I'm sure that will come some time later today.:p
