Fried my VHo lighting saturday while messing around in the sump...... Reef Octopus 110 and Nova Extreme Pro 6 x 39 will be here tomorrow. I wanted to go with the 1000ss skimmer but having to buy new lighting will short the cash flow in your wallet pretty quick....... My DIY LED will have to be on hold for a bit.

I did a %25 water change late last week and picked up a couple tank bred Ocellaris clowns along with some Dwarf blue and red leg hermits and a Trochus snail Sunday. Clowns are pretty small, around 1.5" or so I'd say and are doing great. Ammonia, nitrite and nitrate are all still 0 3 days after the new tank mates have been in. Ph is 8.0. Is that something that needs raised somehow? SG is 1.025 when filled, 1.2055 - 1.026 when sump is low on water. Is that a concern? I've been trying to top off morning and night to keep the SG as stable as possible.

Snapped a few quick pictures tonight. Going to try and get more later on. Only one of the clowns would cooperate.......

Yeh the aiptasia is on my list...... Unfortunately there was some on one of the first small pieces I got and it's spreading. I have a feeling it's going to get out of control quick if I don't deal with it.

Still working on ridding the tank of aiptasia but here's some updates and new tank mates.












How do new heads grow on frogspawn? It looks like there are some new little polyps or "heads" growing at the foot. Hard to get a picture of.

Is this normal? This mushroom has split 3 different times in less than a month. The last split left what looks like a whole row of new pieces.
