Added a fan to the canopy. Starting to get warm here. Not sure it will cut it in the hot days that reach 105įF...

Thanks bud. Tank is slowly getting there.....I'm out in El Dorado Hills. Pretty close to where you are. I bet we go to the same LFS's. Let me know if you're ever in the area!

The Sac region has quite a good number of LFS'. I go to different stores for different things etc. My favorite are Aquarium Depot and Your Reef. AQL as you mentioned also has good selection.

I have no idea to be honest. I'd guess around 300 lbs with 75ish of those pounds in the sump? I have the nasty habit of rearranging my rock a lot. Just can't get that "perfect" aquascape.

Nice. Jeffrey at aqua depot is very knowledgeable and helpful. Their prices are pretty good too.

Been a bit since I last updated. Thought I'd share a few pictures.

Pic #1: I found a gorilla crab harassing the base of one of my acros last week. I put an old dead skeleton next to it and luckily the crab jumped ship. I tossed the old acro skeleton and crab into the sump. Base of the live acro is looking better this morning.

Pic #2 & 3) One of my rose BTAs split again. This is the 2nd split of this BTA. You can see the tear healing itself at the top end of pic #3. Interestingly enough the other 1st generation BTA split a few days after it's "sibling". There are now 4 anemones from the original one I purchased a few years ago. I didn't expect the split of both 1st gen anemones to occur so close to each other as they moved to separate sides of the tank etc.

Pic #4) Finally got around to installing the Apex controller. I've had it sitting around for a couple months. Almost forgot about it. It's been really nice having it regulate the temperature. Connected it to the fan and it's been running all day. We've got a heat wave coming through. 6 days of 105+ temperatures starting today.
