  6. 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.
  7. 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?

    Sorry Jerry, i corrected it!
  9. Kirk, dont let something like this get you out of the hobby. There's no doubt in my mind, a fresh start with a massive tank will revitalize your passion for the hobby. I sure most of us long term reefers here have experienced ups and dows, but something always pulls us back into it. Your tank, like 6lilfishes said, has inspired alot of local reefers. Your new beautiful home will not be complete without your own piece of the reef.
