Sounds like the 36 lol. Ob, btw, I got the ATO working. My mind was just boggled as to why it shouldn't turn on unless the float was at the top...which should be when it stops. Thank got for going to sleep and waking up the next day. Stupid float was on upside down. Working perfectly.

Ok. Just got my shipment form reefs2go! Everything was there! Though now my hands are covered in glue. The one acan had come off its plug and the other 2 needed a suitable rock foundation. Tried out drip acclimating them this time around in my acrylic 2.5 gal tank I have laying around incase I ever wanted a drink I guess. Took pics, but my crappy droid doesn't serve the colors any real justice.
Acclimation

Green Pocillipora

Pink Birds Nest

Purple/Green Acan

I think this is the "go Gators" acan

And the red acan will have to wait. Photobucket is having issues.

Nice!

I've been doing a lot of research on LEDs, radions are the best from what I've seen

Just pricey. I'd say I worked my tail off for them, but I'm salary so I just did my thing lol.

Update on the new coral.

The acans are doing well. Swollen up and doing their thing. Quite happy about that, especially since the flowerpot wanted to meet them and fell down into the sandbed again. I moved it back and the acans away from it.

The pink birdsnestisn't doing so well. Bleaching and expelling its zoo. I moved it up with more flow and turned the lights down in hope that it helps it.

The pocillipora was bleaching at the bottom when I got it. Thought that is a tad concerning, the polyps are out on it and I'm quite hopeful. I'm keeping it in the sandbed for the time being.

If there is any sign of bleaching, cover it up with superglue or frag it off. It could be necrosis. I had an Acro with major bleaching issues so I fragged it and this is how it is now..

Cover it with superglue? How would that help anything? I'd have to cover almost all of the bird's nest...

It covers the bleached part to keep it from spreading. If its all over, don't do it, normally it's just for bleached bases. Maybe just keep acclimating and hope for the best.

Not the best pic, but it shows where it is white better than the acclimating pic.
