LOL...if this tank breaks I'm done! I don't see how it will though. It is sitting on a granite slab and an extremely solid stand.

I still don't have everything back in yet. I'll be working on it this weekend though....

UGH!! I have been so exhausted with work and keeping up with the yard around here that I haven't done much to the tank. I did some water tests and found that my nitrates are up a little back to 20+. I kind of expected this and am just going to have to work it out slowly as things settle back down in the system.

My refugium is looking better then ever. The Macro is growing like mad so I know it is doing it's job of keeping things in check to a point. Another week or so and I'll be cutting the macro back quite a bit.

My RBTA lost a lot of color through this ordeal but is bouncing back nicely. I'm getting ready to pull the canopy off the tank and get some more corals in and maybe the rest of the fish.

Whew!

That was a job. I got all the fish back in the tank and most of the corals placed. I still have more coral to put in the 120 but I think I'm going to wait and see how I like things as they are. I left my 4 green Chromis in the frag tank with the other pair of clowns. I'm going to look into a different shoaling fish...I have a few ideas but haven't decided yet.

Anyway..I'll try and get some pics taken later this week and post them. The tank is looking ok....I'm still not happy with it yet but it will get there.

I would be interesting in hearing what you decide on in this respect.

Yeah yeah....I'll get some pics posted soon enough. There really isn't much to look at as all the corals in the tank are only frags and you can hardly see them....It's not like it was in the 72 with large colonies...

Well since everyone seems to want to see a pic of this tank here you go. It is a quick one and not a very good one either. I really do need a new camera.
