On vacation --

Well actually I'm going to a Microsoft certification boot camp for the next two weeks. It's about time I got the certifications to go along with my experience and title.

While I'm away I have friend coming over to feed my livestock and keep the evaporation drip tank full.
Of course today I noticed that my skimmer isn't producing the bubbles it should. If I shake the skimmer pump a bit, the bubble output does increase for a bit. I have to hit the road and don't have time to take it apart to clean it right now. That means unless I give Michelle instructions on cleaning the pump the PS might be offline for the next two weeks. I'm assuming that will be ok as long as she doesn't overfeed.

I told her to come here for advice if she notices anything unusual.

Current tank setup is:
125 gal FOwLR (2/15/03)
DSB 5"-6" (Southdown added 3/1/03)
Acqua Clear Aquatics 125 trickle filter without bio balls
2 Hagen 802 powerheads
2 - 30w fluorescents (FW30T8-AR-TS)
1 Coralife aqualight PC 1-96w 10k; 1 96w -03
Mag7 pump in sump
300w heater in the sump. 200w in overflow as backup (set lower)
25w Coralife UV sterilizer
50 lbs of base rock (added 2/22/03)
95 lbs of LR (50# added 2/22/03, 45# added 3/4/03)
1400VA UPS

1x Green Chromis - (Chromis viridis)
1x Coral Beauty Angel - (Centropyge bispinosus)
2x True Percula Clownfish - (Amphiprion percula)
1x Firefish, Purple (Nemateleotris decora)
1x Bicolor Blenny (Ecsenius bicolor)
1x Foxface Lo (Siganus vulpinus)
1x Sailfin Tang (Zebrasoma veliferum)
1x Royal gramma
2x Serpent brittle star
50+ snails (assorted but who can count them)
2 Fighting conch
2 Cucumbers
1 Yellow tip Ritteri Anemone (Heteractis magnifica or stichodactyla haddoni)
2 ricordea (1", 1", 2.5")
1 mushroom colony (purple 4 polyps)
1 mushroom (green 5˝")
some scarlet & blue hermits

Have you left yet?

If not have you measured out the food you want them to dispense and placed it into little baggies? Put the day of the week you want them to feed the baggie and hide the rest of the food so they can only feed whats in the baggies.

Good luck with your certifications.

We went over in great detail how much to feed, what to feed and when to feed. She has helped me with part of the setup and has been around often enough to know what to do, so I trust her.

I am already in sunny Springfiled, VA and studying in advance of an 8:00 a.m. class.
