Ya. It happens though I put it mid level and went to work, not realizing it was right under the radions. Roasted.

Yeah I fragged a green Monti cap Sunday and lost the chip somewhere. Dang snail or more likely the urchin pulled it off the frag. Tried to frag a chip again Wednesday night and come home today to another stolen chip lol. Guess I need to move it to the frag tank or wait and cut off a bigger chunk.

I had trouble for awhile with an orange monti frag chip vanishing due to being bumped by snails. Finally, it is stuck on and overgrew the glue.

Well, tried to add the ATS on today by T'ing off my return pump. Yeah, that went as poorly as it could. All pressure went into the ats and not through to the tank. Should have installed a valve but didn't think of it. Just cut it off and sealed it up. Waiting on the silicon to dry so I can get the sump back up and running again.

Went on the warpath today. Took out my trumpet coral and took and scrubbed the byropsis off of it, as this is where it gathered after the last removal. Decent job, but sadly I broke the colony in half. Still going strong, just now I have 2. Like I have room for more coral. It might be time to find someone to swap stuff with.

Things have continued on. I have been growing whatever the algae is in my refugium again in outrageous amounts. I'm going to try Cobalt's nitrate and phosphate resins to see if it can make a difference as there is still growth in my display that I am not happy with.
Other than that, fed today before lights came on and the marine betta came out for a quick bite. Was happy to see him actually eat. He's been in there for a couple months, so I knew he was eating since he was still alive, just hadn't seen it. He is still my favorite fish even though you see him rarely at night.
