It been 8 days since the transfer.
Fish and BTA still seem to be very stressed hide all the time.
Corals are opening up though.

Nitrate update- Went to lfs and got water tested. Nitrates -5. Had him repeat the test. Still 5.
So low nitrates.

Going to repair my sump/ refugeium. The baffle between return gave in. The silicon didnt hold it very well i guess.
Do I remove the old silicon? How do I put silicon in the 1" space between baffles?

I used a cd case to hold them. 2 cases is about an inch. A razor blade works well for taking silicone of, it will take a little time though.

That's goo idea to hold them in place.
But how do I apply silicon to a baffle side through 1 inch space. I am talking about between baffles.

I didnt. Just put some on the corners at first them gob it on on the side you can reach. Try getting as far as possible into the other side though.

Aggression.. I would observe the tank to see whats happening, you'll probably have to remove something. Try doing more pwc's to stress the fish less.

Ok I will repair the sump tomorrow and add new 40 gallons when I started the sump. So about 30% water change.

I also picked up JBJ auto top off system today
Also picked up aqua lifter pump. no more guessing on evaporation after the weekend.
