Tank maintenance day. Salinity running solid at 1.025, temp at 80. Nitrates are 0, Alk 80 ppm, Calc 595, and phos .03. The phosphates aren't a surprise, that is coming out of my ro/di and need to order more resin. Then there is the alk, no clue how to get it where it needs to be at. Tried dosing and changing salt mix. No clue what the issue is. Chemistry needs to stop being hard and let me win this battle already.

Things appear to be doing well under the new graphing for the radions. The only scary bit, the nems started to move... my rbta is out of the sandbed and up halfway on the rock it was always near. The carpet nem didn't move much, just rotated more out and is quite close to my meteor shower.

If only my LFS would take things off their customers. Guess I'll have to wait til MRC gets his place up and running...

ANYWAY, there is officially an orange short tentacle plate and a purple short green tentacled plate coming my way. Thank you saltwaterfish.com!

Well I'm still waiting, especially since this is still the 55 and haven't even made the call to order the new tank. Paying off the entire year of insurance on the car and house first.

Good picture. Awesome porcelain! I want to add a few more to my BC. I like the white ones and don't have any.
