So right after buying the 1200s this week for the mixing station, a local reefer decided to part out his tank and get out of the hobby. I picked up 2 koralia hydor 750s. So I think I'm going to use the Aqueon power head in the mixing station now. We'll see. The 750s are SUPER quiet... I'm really happy with them at the moment.
He had a lot of other stuff he just wanted to get rid of so I got all of his rock... probably about 20#-30# more. And when pulling out a larger piece there was a huge kenya tree on the back! He said I could have it. I wasn't really prepared to bring that home or acclimate it so I hope it will survive the shock of the transport. The rock has tons of great coraline algae on them.
I have stuffed the refugium and put the remaineder of the rock in the tank. I may have to sell a few pieces as it's crowded now. We'll see. I might try and put one of the bigger pieces in the refugium and more of the smaller stuff around the tank.
I have picked up a lot of life now and need to inspect everything closely over the next few days as I have some hitch hikers for sure. I'm pretty sure that one piece has some aptasia but the heads are all near the tubes on the rock so I'm not 100%. I also have this starfish looking thing that is about the size of a dime or a bit smaller. Anyone know what that is?
