Sorry to hear about the coral crash. Glad you are looking at it in the positive. Are you removing the sump sand during the water change?

What type of sand are you using in your display tank and what's the size?

I believe it's caribsea and its the stuff that's a little bit coarser than the really fine stuff.

Well I just got back from the city and picked up some stuff. I got some new snails (Astraea, nassarius, and a strawberry turbo) a couple blue leg hermits. I also got some copepods and phyto. My tank seems to be stabilizing after a couple water changes so I figure I should rebuild my CUC. With the crash I had my inverts were all ok so adding some more shouldn't have a big impact on bioload and should help clean up the algae bloom I'm now staring at. Diffinately kicking myself in the butt, all algae was in check and everything was looking awesome, growing awesome and I done gone and blew it.

Well I ordered my lights last night along with a few other things. I also ordered a refractometer, media reactors, carbon and GFO, filter sock holder and socks and a check valve for my return line. I'm stoked, and who said Christmas comes but once a year?

Alright, well got the lights hung and man they are awesome. So should have just got LEDs in the beginning. Thanks to my man Frank for hooking me up. The color of everything (what's left that is) is amazing and the shimmer effect is hypnotic. Ill post here in a few. I also got my reactors in, got them setup and running now just waiting for my sock holder and socks.

Did you see that reefs2go started liverock2go? Deals looked solid starting out. Some nice Caribbean rock would finish that scape off so you can have a ton of overhangs and caves.

Maybe in time ill add rock, for now I'm happy with it. Just need to replace my corals and fish.

Here is a video I took that shows the lights and sump. Also shows my phyto culture I started.
