Well, moved a couple of the SPS around. I wanted my plum crazy acro under more light and my pink stylophora more into the shade. Continuing to remove the hair and bubble algae as it appears. Still more than I want. Tomorrow will be the third 5 gallon water change in the last 7 days.

My other half of dr foster and smith order arrived. More glue and Purigen. It came with Jullian's Thing...what a pain to assemble. It is ok to use. See how things go.

Weekly update. This weekend will be the 4th PWC with the Kent salt. Will check levels this weekend as well.
Surprisingly, I had a feather duster die. Was sad to see, I liked that one. It happens, so not that worried about it. Still have one that has been in the tank for several months longer going strong...ironically from Petco I believe.
Planning on turning the Radions up again this weekend. It has been several weeks since I have messed with them and things are looking good. Have some increased color in my blue bottle brush, so we'll see if the light is effecting it or if it is just continuing to recover from the power outages from several months ago.
Overall though, the tank is looking good. The clam is open wider than I have ever seen it before. Still very excited about the Stop Smoking Clam and watching it react to me cleaning the sides of the tank or whatever else I'm doing in there.
From the last post with Jullian's Thing...this thing is pretty cool! No more broadcast feeding for me. Being able to feed the things in the tank I want and make sure they are fed makes me more comfortable with the coco worm. It was hard to try to feed it with a turkey baster, it would always retract...that and my arm isn't wet. Def a good pickup.

Sounding like things are going pretty good. Funny thing is I've had the best success with petco featherdusters then anywhere else lol.

I should provide more photos as update...but here is my designer open brain after lights out tonight. Was screwing around with my camera and stumbled upon my submission for the photo of the month. Much better than my last submission.

Same, he's already back in. Just so happened he was on the front glass of my 36 asking to return.

What a day. I went to do some maintenance in a hopes I felt better after work. I was able to rip the dual reactor off the back of my tank. So...on to re hanging it. Done. I also started cleaning the gunk out of the sump. What a mess, didn't get it all. But I did replace the plate I had the skimmer sitting on with one of the styrofoam lids from my orders. Hopefully the skimmer gets back to running right to get the rest of the build up out of the sump, but with the skimmer being higher allowed me to take the panty hosed off of it as it isn't splashing anymore.
