    Welcome! And thank you for your service. ...I wish someone would have told me how much money I would spend over my lifetime in the hobby (16 years so far)...I would have socked it all into buying Google and Apple stock back in 2002 instead, and I'd be retired by now

    LF Zoa's I once had :)

    Heya! I don't have any of those, but, glad to see you back...

    Not at all, Aaron... you're welcome any time. Sorry for the lack of progress pics. Cell phone pics suck, and, not having the option of getting any kind of internet service out here besides crappy satellite service (100 a month for 20 gigs which my teenager would burn in a day) is kind of a disincentive to break out the DSLR and upload high quality pics.

    That picture is perfect above the tank.

    Forums vs Social Media

    Yup... forums rule. Can't stand social media and all the toxicity that comes along with it.

    Mike, No, I haven't found a mint pavona yet. I am also still looking for a green cap with purple rim, orange cap (especially if it's one of those WWC hybrid types with the green swirls in it), and purple cap.

    Glad to get back to stocking, and, glad there is still a forum to use. I really don’t like to use the BRK Facebook page, as it’s nothing more than a selling Forum.

    Time for an update. First, a big thank you to Aaron, Dawn & Randi, and Brandon for giving me some frags of the corals I lost over the year in the holding vat. It’ll take years for them to get that size again, but, it’s a great start. I had a few survivors, and, have added a few other corals here and there over the last few months.

    I have 600 small hermits in it. Don't know if they're doing much. A few snails, lazy bastards, that don't clean the glass too well. I added a few frags last weekend...we'll see how they fare.

    Atlantis Aquarium Bonsai chunky frag for sale

    Very nice! Wish my tank was ready for acros.

    ISO Frag System

    Not sure if he's sold it, but, Kevin at @Corals Down South was selling some frag tanks. 60 gallon lowboys (dimensions of a 120, but, half the height).

    Thanks for the encouragement, Will. It'll be a slow going, for sure.

    I used Marcorock’s dry sand. The packaging states it needs to be rinsed, which I did, but maybe I didn’t do enough. It certainly looked like a fine dust/particulates flying around in the tank. After 2 weeks of 100 and 200 micron filter sock use, I’ve gotten it nearly clear.
