Wow, I thought I have been busy!

Great tanks.

Funny pic the other night of the Urchin sucking the algae off of the suction cup on the thermometer that was floating loose,


Nice clear tank and corals are opening up too.


More poor quality pics coming soon! of the killis and the baby Angel which is growing like a weed.

Fed the vampire shrimp, they seem to be really enjoying the extra space, I haven't seen them as active before. Placed cucumber in the tank for my snails but my largest vampire decided she wanted it and has taken it off to her cave lol
Put the plant's back in my elephant nose tank AGAIN! he must've up rooted nearly all off them 😈

Maybe use plant weights since he seems to up root them so much. Put the weight on the plant just under the substrate maybe

It's not that bad any more. Now we use a 55 gal grey tubby with pond pump and 25 feet of 1 1/2 hose in the bath tub to fill. To drain we use a small pump and garden hose. To do all the tanks it takes about 1.5 hours and maybe about 30 mins extra throughout the week for small maintenance.

What are you putting in the SW autumnsky? And some zoanthids, green star polyp, and pulsing exinia(I definitely spelled that wrong) would look great.

Those are amazing tanks! Keep up the great work!

Today: did top off on my 20 gallon, cleaned my invasive Java moss, picked out some Cory eggs a and put them in the baby tank. Then dosed with my liquid ferts. Replanted some cabomba.
