Nice frag haul! Sucks most of them didn't survive shipping.  I noticed my alkalinity drops when I let a fresh batch of water sit too.  I did a water change today with water that has been circulating for a week.  I'm out of Hanna checker alk reagent because BRS has been out of it for a while, so I had no way to test.  I decided to take a chance and do the water change anyway.  Anybody else buy multiple bottles of Hanna alk reagent at a time?  I've been blowing through mine between testing my tank and my water change water.

I got confirmation from Your Reef that they will be shipping out replacements to me for Friday delivery.

 

Aquahut has the Hanna Alk reagents in stock usually (for dKH, but its supposed to be the same as PPM.)  I picked up a new bottle when I was there Friday.  When I order from BRS, I usually order 2-3 at a time, since I know I go through them fast.

YR Pastel Shortcake is my new favorite. Kinda sad that it's a lost order though.

 

Yeah, that one was the first pieces that caught my eye when I checked the stuff on the WYSIWYG sale.  Sucks it didn't make it.  I'm hoping the replacement piece arrives in good shape on Friday, and that it's comparable in size to the one I initially picked.  I believe they said thy were likely pulling the replacement frags from the storefront tanks...

Just wondering how those replacement frags did for you?  How's the tank doing?


Tank is doing alright, other than still fighting cyano. Did Chemiclean last night. Will do 100 gallon WC tomorrow when I get home from work.

Replacement frags came in. The freebie was the only one that didn’t make it. Looked like a pastel something. It didn’t make it long after dipping.

Here are a few pics of stuff in the frag tank.
Apparently I need to work with the gel filters a bit More...

The Red Planet in the front started losing flesh in the display so I moved it back to the frag tank. So far it looks like it’s stopped but will continue to watch it.

Of course the freebie would croak on you...dang it.  looks like you've got a good collection of corals going.  Nice!  I'm planning on hitting up Fragniappe and hopefully adding a few nice pieces of SPS to my collection in the 30g.  Hopefully they'll be settled in and growing well by the time my 180g is ready.

Yeah. Just my luck.

So far I’ve ordered frags from Your Reef and Pieces of the Ocean on their live sale a few weeks back. The POTO frags all came in in excellent shape and are doing well so far. Mostly LPS but a couple of SPS frags.

I’ll have to adjust my lights in the display some. I think I might have been frying a couple of frags after placing them in the display. Going to drop the overall intensity by about 20%. Had one of the monti frags I got from Jerry start bleaching after a couple of weeks in the display. I popped it off and put it back in the frag tank to recover.

Hoping the ORA red planet frag recovers.

Did a Chemiclean treatment Sunday night and did the follow up WC last night. 99% of the visible cyano was gone when I got home from work last night. Took the baster to the little bit remaining and hoping that it won’t come back. Also saw a bit of GHA starting to grow in the frag tank. Will need to replenish snails in there and add a few more to the refugium to clear up the bits I couldn’t manually remove last weekend. Might try a baby sea hare if AH still has any.

Resumed dosing NO3P4X last night to hopefully head off a potential nutrient bloom from the cyano destruction. Will see.
Display is mostly clear of GHA. A few short spots that the naso ignores and the snails haven’t gotten to yet.

That’s about it on the tank update.
