Tank looks good, I like the new aquascaping too. How do you keep the coralline off of the black Eshopps overflows? I am pretty good about keeping it off the back glass, but it got out of control on me on the overflows.

Well the reason there isn't much coraline on the back glass or the overflows is because it has taken some time to get things back to normal after moving from the 72 to the 150 and then to the 120 and then again into a 120. This tank has only been up for a few months so the coraline hasn't had a chance to grow. There are a few places starting on the back glass and on the overflows. Personally I would rather the overflows turn purple the back glass it doesn't matter one way or the other to me.

I've been a bit busy at work, only 20 hours of OT this week The company I work for was sold (deal closing this week or next) and we had a lot of work to do as well as keeping up with current projects.

I was thinking of your frag tank. When will be posting a new for sale thread?

It seems that the cheap Chinese bulbs I tried just did not put out enough PAR. Together with a drop in some maintenance activities (Ca, Alk, Mg levels) I lost most of the sps. I changed to Ushio bulbs and what's left (the pink birdsnest I got from you) is now taking off and growing nicely.

Here's one of them. It was 1 thin stalk with a single thin branch when I got it from you....

Well I don't have a lot of SPS to sell right now. I went through a bit of a financial crisis a couple of weeks ago and sold off most all of my colonies I only have frags left. I have a ton of digitata in the frag system. I also have some Ziggy's Acro left. I have yet to frag them. It was an ordeal and I was afraid I would have to sell the entire system. Fortunately things worked out and I was able to keep the tank along with frags of almost everything.

Let me know if you are interested in the digi and the Ziggy's acro.

I officially started the 72g SW tank in February of 2006, so almost 3 years ago.

My corals are coloring up nicely under the new Hamilton bulbs. I'm seeing some growth in the Hawkins again. All in all things are looking pretty good.

I drug out the old Nikon 35mm and took some pics of the tank. What a difference a real camera makes in photographing. I have to get the pics scanned so I can post them. I'll work on that over the holiday.

I got some of the film developed and the pics turned out ok. I have to mess with the camera a little to get the pics to look the way I want them to.

I scanned a few that turned out, here are a couple.

Thanks. I got some other shots that turned out pretty good of the cardinals as well I just haven't scanned them yet. I have to get my book out on the camera again and re-learn setting the F-stop and all that to get better pics. It's been a while since I messed with the 35mm.

I got some awesome B&Ws I need to scan too.
