Thanks grizz. I'll hold off for a while. Gonna let the diatoms run their course and see where To go from there. Everything seems okay but the candy cane. The torch has extended a lot compared to yesterday, so I'm pretty happy about that. The zoas or button polyps, not sure what they are, open just fine.

I was wondering, if I wanted remove the polyps from the frag disc, can I do that? Then glue it to my rock structure? And how would I go about doing that...?

Also, the DIY auto top off is almost done. Just have to figure out how I want to bend the float bracket. Here's a sneak peak at the equipment. I'll write up a good detailed post about it once its up and running.
