Busy night last night so I wasn't able to post an update so here it is.
Most of my corals were open and happy when I got home but some were not so I moved some stuff around to find better flow spots. Also moved my powerheads to get a better flow pattern. The only issues were my two monti caps, both were showing tissue necrosis so I had to quickly frag them down. The orange has a very small frag left and my bright green has two slivers left. Hopefully they bounce back. Checking them this morning they are still kickin and haven't died off anymore so that's a good start. I have some pics of things but being that only my blues are on right now most corals don't show up but there is one of my forest fire, man I love that coral. My other corals that survived are bouncing back nicely. My favia wasn't effected at all.
My new skimmer is a beast and working hard. So nice to have a decent skimmer not to mention quieter. That hob
was noisy with the splashdown into the sump (it wouldn't fit on the display because its braced all the way around with glass, I believe it's called eurobraced). Skimmer barely fit in my sump, I was planning on a smaller one but this one came up and the price was right. I even had to modify my filter sock holder to fit everything.
My pod population is huge and my spotted mandarin is fat and happy. He has adjusted nicely and is out swimming around all the time now. My clowns are still with me as is my blenny. I picked up another orange spot diamond goby to replace the one that died in the crash and he has been out sifting steady. He did however evict my engineer goby and took over his cave and I haven't spotted the engineer since. I'm sure he is around but he is pretty timid. I also plan on getting a powder blue tang, guy I got the coral from had one and honestly it is my favourite tang so far other than the Achilles. I really want something that will be active and swim around steady.
My last round of water tests turned out good other than my alkalinity is starting to decline so I'm going to have to start dosing. I'm going to get a two part dose going but am unsure which one to use. BRS has a 2 part that looks good but they only ship ups which I hate dealing with so I have to find some other source to get some. I have a buddy that orders from BRS and has means to have a ups delivery made without the hastle a normal joe gets so I may try to sweet talk him into ordering it for me.
