  1. An update on my tank. Yesterday made 4 weeks with no direct light above the tank. The room have some ambient light which is keeping my fish happy. I have the salinity lowered to 1.016, Which is keeping the alk at 6, calcium at 280 and magnesium at 800. I am finally starting to see the pocillopora slowly dying off! This is a patience game and I am not going to force it back, just to have this dirt weed of an sps come back again. On a side note, the rock work and sand look fantastic!
  2. They all get along fine. I feed them daily and they have plenty of swimming room.
  3. Kirk’s 350-ish build

    Can not wait to see this one packed with sticks!
  4. All my corals seem to be doing great! My blues run 10 to 10 at 70% , and my whites run at 40% 1 to 7. For the price, i think they are a good buy.
  5. Still have some....... Going to nuke whats left with alk and a blackout this week! Removed 98% of coral to eliminate the die off affecting the water quality to much.
  6. So i dove into gutting the coral and reworking the rock work in the 600 today. Still a bunch of work to do, but i feel great about the fresh start!

    Jerry, do you think the phosphates had anything to do with the new salt you were using from macna?

  12. Im going remove almost all coral before the black out. If i change rocks after blackout, i will already have 250-300lbs circulating in the system for a couple months in remote bins plumbed to the sump. If i do that i will probably have a total system volume of about 850-900 gallons. Which will help for die off, but i can continue water changes also.
  13. So now that i have the frag system up and going it time to start addressing my big probelm of eradicating all of the green pocillopora that has spead all over my tank. This project will likely start in January. I will be trying to save the coral i want and keep them in the frag system. I do have plenty of fish i have to worry about during this process. I am still on the fence if i want to replace all the rock in the tank. If i do i will order dry rock , cure it and plumb seperate containers to the tank to start seeding it for the transition. No matter if i do that or not, im pretty sure im going to have to have a black out in the tank long enough to kill the pocillopora off. The pocillopora has speard everywhere, including the back wall of the tank, and even grows from the sand. Im open to ideas and suggestions because although I'm not concerned about losing coral in this process, the fish are my main concern. What do you guys think?
