Sounds good to me! I will adjust the powerhead on that side once they come on for the day!

Maybe its as simple as that? Let's hope so.

Thanks everyone! I appreciate the input, always willing to try different things.

I hope it turns around for you with the change in flow. May take a few days or so to respond.

It's been a few days and no change whatsoever with the toadstool. I am supposed to go look at the 12 bulb fixture this week to make sure everything works. It has ATI bulbs too, brand new ones so at least I will be set on bulbs for a year or so.

Really looking forward to getting the t5's back up over the 180g, I think it will make a huge difference.

Couldnt take it anymore, watching the toadstool get worse and worse so I moved it over to the 60g.

Tested the water and its fine so here's hoping there will be some improvement in the next few days. At least a sign...

Is the 60g cycled? I really hope it recover, that's a bummer.

Yeah, the rock from the 60g has been cooking out back for like 6 momths or more. Was adding ammonia here and there to be sure it stayed cycled. lol

Tested up the water last night and it came back all 0's so it looks good.

So far the toadstool is looking the same, maybe a tad bit fluffier, but its only been 24 hours. Hoping for some more improvement. Looks so nice in the 60g too, what with the radion and all. I LOVE that light, stinks that they are so darn expensive though I would really like to have them over the 180g. The shimmer and color is unbelievable. In some cases you do really get what you pay for I guess. lol

Oh... I completely forgot about that. I just go blank sometimes.

I'd love some radions... Can't wait to see how well the toadstool will be.

I also don't understand why you aren't getting a shimmer from the Taos. I heard one other person say this also. How can it be in some tanks and not others? IMO, the only way this coral will bounce back in the other tank is if the lighting is weaker, or the parameters are better.

Parameters are complete zeros across the board, there are no fish or other coral in there yet. Just a crap ton of rock. the radion is set to peak for one hour a day and it slowly ramps up and down throughout the day. After two days the tentacles are coming out a bit more than they did in the 180g so I am still hopeful.

Yeah, zero shimmer. I thought it was just me lol. But yeah, the lights almost make mywater look cloudy or murky. No matter how I set the ratio of blues to whites. I had the same issue with the full spectrum tao, I figured it was the purple hue it gave off making the water not crystal clear.

I plan on writing a FULL writeup on the orbits in the enxt day or two hopefully. I think I have enough data to share.
