Well, a state of the tank. My red planet acro died off sadly. My pink pocilopora is trying to follow, it ended up with vermetid snails on it! I was content leaving the ones on the other side of the tank live, but I think their time is coming to an end. Smashed the ones into fish food on the pocilopora and hopefully it recovers, noticed when I got back from my weekend in Ohio.
When I got back, I obviously had to clean the glass. Covered in pods
. I was quite excited. I didn't think my population was doing so well with the mandarin, but he'll be ok if he decides to stop eating mysis.
The open brain is still receding, but it has slowed down. There might be a chance at recovery. I was thinking about just abandoning it, but decided not to give out hope. The skeleton hasn't been taken over with algae like the others so I'll keep pressing on.
Algae. This stuff is pretty annoying. It made its way back when the cobalt resins were spent. Now with the phosguard going with chemipure elite and purigen it should square itself away again. Going to need to clean the power heads to get it off them and scrape what I can from the rocks.
I've also grown tired of my massive birds nest colony. It's too big for the tank now. That and several frags of it scattered around the tank. In early planning on what to do with it, but it needs to go for sure.
