I came home and my red star polyps were covered in a white fungus. Did a coralRX dip and scrubbed the remaining fungus away.

Honestly imo what you should do when the 120 build starts is use the 55 as a holding tank for all your new corals coming in so any thing that hits the 120 has been checked out first in your 55 cause I bet a lot of this stuff is coming in on your coral purchases which I frickin envy you on. I swear every week you got a new shipment on the way haha

Lol I know right? It is odd because that thing has been fine for a long time and then started acting oddly. I took it as a sign something was wrong in the tank, but nothing out of the ordinary. It's too bad too, that was one of the pieces I was going to pass down your way.

Oh please no lol star polyps and me do not get along well. I've never seen anything like it, my gsp is unstoppable lol. It's literally growing through anywhere from 3-5" of rock and sprouting out tiny holes on the other side. It's like a freakin zombie or something so I'm just gonna have to take out the whole rock and smash it up cause its jumping to New foundation rocks now. Only problem with that though is that rock also has my watermelon favia on it so looks like that'll be getting fragged in the process as well haha.

I'm glad ur going to upgrade tanks I think you will have a really nice set up in it to but may I ask y your going with a 120 when for not much more u could have a 180 and have more depth to work with I'm just curious and hope all goes well and I was thinking why don't u build your self a still and distill your water might help with the ph and such

The decision was on a 120 so I could have the dimensions I wanted, as large as I could go without testing the waters for needing a third radion, and well...it is still very early planning no where near completing.

Now in terms of the 55's life after that tank goes up, several ideas. First was it becoming a sump. Second a frag tank. Third a qt. and fourth, which is the newest idea due to the revival of Caribbean Gorgorgians, either a Caribbean tank or an attempt at a biope. One way or another it'll need resealed first.
