Yeah, I still need to drill a hole in the other side so I can get the power supply with the battery backup. That will leave only needing those two hang kits for the Radions and maybe another battery backup way down the road for the Radions, as the 2 vortechs are hooked into the current one.

Ok. I just couldn't help myself. I ended up completing an order from liveaquaria. I will be getting a purple rimmed monti danae, pink millepora, and the real deal guy...green polyp crateriformis acropora.

I know right? Freaking diver's den...
In other news, the new pump for my skimmer arrived today. And the air intake doesn't fit. Have an email to the company and they can't figure it out so they are calling Eshopps tomorrow about it.

Really hard to see from the blues reflecting from the tank as they are acclimating. But, Crateriformis acropora at top, purple rimmed danae left, pink millepora right. And let me tell you, the eyes on the crateriformis are amazing...
I called in late to work to accept the package so it didn't sit in the snow. Glad I did, the water was colder than I'd like it to be, but it wasn't anything awful.
Currently setting the Radions to 45% for a 4 week acclimation back up to 60%.

Yeah, I'm very happy. Even happier that the 1 degree that it was outside didn't match the temp inside...I brought them up to 65 before having to leave for work. That was awful too, interstate closed down due to an awful accident and finally get through there and run into yet another. 40 minute drive took 2 hours.
Either way, can't wait to get home and see how they are doing as I rushed the acclimation. I have them on a DIY frag rack made out of an unused mag float and egg crate I cut earlier in the day that got zip tied on. Placed it right in front of the tank under my duncans so I get to look at them just by passing by.

Small bleached part on the acro at the bottom. Hoping just shipment stress that will recover and not spread.
