Thanks for looking! The frag tank in the house is doin ok. It probably has too many softies in it as some SPS has been struggling a little though. That tank will be moved to the store soon & that should help as I will be able to have corals sin seperate tanks.

Unfortunately the update is that right now there is no progress. We have an issue with the electrical in the building right now & I'm on hold temporarily until it gets resolved. I'm hoping for some good news tomorrow though. I'm about ready to fill & cycle the tanks I just don't want to interrupt it while we have to disconnect the electricity to to the work as it hasn't been determined exactly what needs to be done & how long the power will be off. Crossing fingers things go smooth.

This is about where I've left off until the electrical gets sorted out, which hopefully happens a week from today. Then I will continue with my plumbing.

Lol, thanks. Yeah we all know this hobby isn't cheap. You are right about the maintenance that's for sure. The idea of scraping algae all the time isn't all that attractive. Labor of love I guess.

If you hate scraping algae and emptying protein skimmers, you're in the wrong business! LOL

I'm not a fan of algae scraping but being a plumber skimmate smells like money to me!

I am not a fan of bad smelling hobbies, but the reef isn't too bad. Skim mate is the stinkiest thing I deal with. Now leaving brine shrimp out over night can gag a maggot.
