Either way im not allowed to buy more coral until things are stable...so a couple months. Need to nurse my duncams back into the game anyway...might even just put them and the acan back in the 36. Dont know, well see. This will take time and patience, plain and simple.
Montipora doesn't seem to do good in my tank for some reason they will be fine then go bad then be fine but the other sps I have I put in a new tank after it was like 2 mknths old and they will bleach of the frag falls off the rock into a shaded area. The only monti that does great is what they call a poker star monti. I love that cpral.

No, the fish are fine. The chalice, acan, and worm brain are in my 36. I'm hoping they are ok. I switched out my heater now believing it was an electrical problem. I'll be doing some more work on the tank and maybe move them back early next week.

Oh man! I hope the corals are ok. I'm glad the fish are doing good. Did you ever get the salinity where it needs to be?

Good luck getting the tank back, Sniper. Sorry to read of your misfortune.
That really blows!!
I had a heater rupture on me last year. Kept getting shocks at the cuticles of my fingernails when I would go in the tank. Luckily I found it quickly and didn't lose anything. I don't think the heater ever cycled on, as it was summer in Florida. I got very lucky.
Again, best of luck

Thanks. I ordered more cuc and a few corals to replace what was lost. They will be housed in my 36 until i have the 55 in 100% shape. Have the flow good and parameters are good, just lowered salinity. Now trying to keep things in there sand free. If it goes in, it gets covered in sand.

Scroll coral, duncan, bumblebee shrimp goby, tiger pistol shrimp, red moon snail, giant green star snail, 20 turbo snails, and 50 lbs of Caribbean live rock.

I love duncans, can't live without one anymore. I ordered more rock, it being on sale sure helped, so that I can pick and choose on what pieces I want in which tank. Having 50 lbs for a 55 and 36 just isn't enough. Anything extra I'll put in my sump or something.
