Anyway, the last 2 are medium flow/medium light guys. They are encrusting as well. I'll talk more about them when I am atleast slightly rested tomorrow after work.

OH, I hadn't mentioned that I have been trying to figure out why my blue symphodium has been closed up recently. I got home and right there was the answer...nudibranch! Same kind that was nawing on my other one in the 36. He now lives in the refugium. Very glad I caught it before the new symphodium goes in. Which btw, I caught a mistake at the store, they had it labeled as a red star polyp. I corrected them, I was buying it anyway since I knew what it was, and they gave me 10 bucks off. Awesome.
Oooh, I love house of Tropicals! The huge 8 or 10 foot frag tank/reef is stunning

I did like their frag tank. Water flowing into lower tanks is really neat.
Anyway, after more maintenance i should be in good shape now...until i had a brown out 15 minutes ago. Surge protecters only do so much...my korallia 1050 FRIED. So, tomorrow is either order a new one or buy another marineland from my lfs...only have net on my phone so well hope that my router isnt fried as well.

Things actually are going well. After 20 minutes, for whatever reason, the 1050 booted up. It was running in reverse. Even though I was hesitant to unplug it, I did and it is now running in the correct direction.

I also realized I haven't done any updates since my trip last week. I'll get on taking pics and such of my new additions. I might be as excited to show off my meteor showers as I was when I bought them, put them in the tank, and learned that both were Cyphastrea rather than just 1.

Well that's good. My pump runs backwards a log too, I'm too lazy to fix the bumper thing inside it. Can't wait to see some pics!

You have some sweet corals dude, I especially like the blue tip hammer and that red/purple brain.

Ok, so even though the new red guy has done great since the addition, my blue symphodium still isn't doing very well. Still very limited polyp extension...if any. I went to look at it today and guess who I saw crawling up the glass out of my return pipe...that stupid nudibranch again. ARGH. He is now in my FOWLR system. Either way, don't believe he is the culprit. I switched the blue and my meteor shower places to see if a different flow/lighting will help things out.

What else to report...I posted a threat about my pink damicornis. Some of the polyps aren't extending and are black. It has me stumped since it is doing well with slowly regaining color and great polyp extension.
