Today's goal was clean that sump. Going well with a turkey baster, now if only the skimmer was working correctly to suck it all up rather than catching it in panty hose. I think what I'm going to do is take it off the shelf it is on, but I'll need to get a longer neck on the return first. Maybe swing by the contractor supply after work tomorrow.
I also took out the filter sponge in the overflow. It is just gross. Couldn't even rinse it out. I put it in a bleach solution, see if that cleans it up. If not, maybe the washing machine. I'd like to keep it going on the system even though there are panty hose on the returns to keep the sump from becoming filthy again. Hopefully it'll clean up.

Continued along. No real problems, just situation normal. I was cleaning today and saw the rock in the other thank that used to have my red star polyps on it. Thought about how much it sucked. As I looked into my reef, I was looking at my sps and the fact that I have sand being kicked up again. I stumbled upon a spot on the side of the rock my star polyp rock was on with 6 star polyps growing nicely on it. So, all is good.

It'll take awhile for it to grow out, they barely have color right now. Just sprouted up. We need to figure out sometime to swap stuff though. I want to get rid the zoas and kinds of stuff to free up more sandbed room for a nice favia.
