After a 2 1/2 month cycle time (lengthened due to business travel and other events), I finally dropped in the first inhabitants: 2 clowns and a royal gramma (who spends his time hiding; hopefully he overcomes his shyness soon).

Next week, the CUC gets added, then this tank will be done till the fall, when I start adding in some corals.

Just an observation but maybe point one of your power heads towards the surface for some agitation. Looks a little stagnant. .

Already done. I'm going to put a HOB on to run Purigen to agitate this weekend.

The gramma is finally coming out of his shell and staying out when we're in the room.

RIP Mr Gramma. As soon as he made his appearance in the tank, he was gone

We had a prolonged power outage in the middle of the night a few days back. My UPS was able to keep the heater up for a while, but eventually, it ran out of juice and the tank temp started to drop. By the time I got downstairs in the morning (after oversleeping), I tried to heat water in tupperware containers to get the temp back up, but it must have been too chilly for him.

The clowns made it through, though.

One good thing about living in Florida, you only need a heater for like a month tops. Just hope my house AC doesn't crap out.

Yup! HA!! I think I'd probably use it 3 days a year. 77 degrees year 'round in my house. Which is pretty funny considering I come from Maine where our only heat source was a wood stove. One extreme to another.

Sorry bout your Gramma. So sad
