well its been a little while since i updated and today was a good day for me and my tank. before i get into that i want to say that koralia got back to me quite promptly and are sending me a new grill for my powerhead, in the meantime i removed it from my wavemaker so i dont have reverse issues. now the good stuff, i went into the lfs
today and noticed a truck with a sump in the box in the parking lot. after watching closely it turns out they are selling it all and went and chatted to them and proceeded to follow them back to thier place to see what they had. they were selling a sump/fuged 120g (no i didnt buy it) and it was setup as a reef. so after looking and himming and hawing i ended up with a nice orange with green mouthed favia, unknown sps
(purple), orange ricordia, and a nice orange and green encrusting monti. the ric and favia are on a piece of rock about 3-5 lbs and the monti is on a rock slightly smaller. along with this i got a brand new unopened bucket of salt and a tube of epoxy. all this for 100, for my area that is a steal!!!!!!!!!! well everything is acclimating as i type this and i am working on trying to get the trio of copper stripped cardinals also. little guys betta died today so hey agreed that they would be a suitable replacement. it was a freshwater betta not salt ftr. one less tank to maintain. well as always once everything is acclimated i will post pics.
