Thanks for the kind words!
This weekend...boy do I have a lot of work to do. I've got to finish designing the new canopy. Oh I bet I haven't said a thing about this have I?
Ok. Last week on my local reef club message board a guy was selling 2 icecap 250w MH
ballasts. I just happen upon it and couldn't resist with the price. I've had plans to upgrade to dual 250w MHs since I went with the 120g tank. The opportunity popped up and I jumped on it!
So, since I have learned the hard way over the last 2.5 years that my canopy was not the best idea I've ever had I'm going to redesign it and start from scratch. After I get it drawn up and figured out I'll post some details on what I'm planning.
I've got to get the frag tank finished up. The sand is in and everything is settled back down. I MUST get the egg crate in the tank and all the corals fragged up and on plugs. My clowns have laid eggs so I'm just waiting on this nest to hatch before messing about in the tank.
trip Neilan and I took last weekend netted me several new corals that need to be placed in the reef. I've decided to frag the zoas before doing this so I have some growing in the frag tank. My wife has claimed the acans as I expected her to do. I'm not a big fan and I really got them for her anyway. One of the frags of Zoas I got has 5 or 6 different kinds on it so I'm going to seperate all of them so I can get them growing. There is one polyp of this GIANT paly that I've never seen before. I'm hoping it will grow quickly.
That's about all I have for now.
Oh yeah...We have pretty much decided to split the anemone this weekend. When that happens I will be doing a video to post on youtube. I'll make sure to put a link on my thread so you guys can see how that goes. I actually talked to the guy that my anemone came from and he told me not to worry, they are very tough and I'll do just fine...and he offered a replacement if I do kill it. I don't want to kill it but I think I'm going to give it a shot. It will only be cut in half. I'll keep one in the main and one in the frag tank. The one in the frag tank will be my "propogation" anemone.
More to come....
