New corals look great! Actually every photo looked great! lol

I love road trips, the first thing I think of is "what fish stores will I get to visit"

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I was google searching some alittle bit ago. Some really cool stuff. Maybe I'll even swing through Harrisburg and see what they have too! My tank is so full as it is. I made a shabby frag rack that is now taking up the middle of my tank. I sure don't want to move my trumpet since it is finally recovering...guess the flowerpot will need a new home!

I also just realized that I can get a new protein skimmer while I'm out and about. Any suggestions on a skimmer for in my sump?

I have been looking to upgrade my skimmer for awhile now. I think I will be going with a Bubble Magus or one of the Reef Octopus lines. I've read good things about both, and not really anything bad. They are both within my price range for my size tank, right around $400.
Now I just need to decide between the two, and have the available money.
The second being more difficult than the first! Been part time for over a year, at a place I've been for 16 years, with 2 kids. Thank God my wife has a good job!

I hear that! I'm glad I have a good job too. I spend a TON on my tanks...doesn't seem to be slowing down soon lol. I was looking online at frags at thatfishplace and house of tropical. Totally excited about all of it. Was suggested Today's Pets too since they have cheap corals/frags. Might have to upgrade the light on my 36 so it can support corals too.

Toss in an update for today. I increased the flow for my SPS and have it all going right above them. Overall, they are doing well. The Stylophora had a really odd white spot that just kept growing...i'm assuming soft tissue necrosis. I hit it with some glue and hopefully that will stop that in its tracks. Then there is the purple na na. It hasn't started regaining any color yet like the others. I haven't seen any polyp extension out of it like I have out of the other ones. Not quite sure why. I'll give it til tomorrow and maybe come up with a plan for it, not sure what to do with it as it is on the frag rack with everything else that is doing just fine.
