    Nice to hear. My tank(s) have mostly been on cruise control also. I lost my 8-yr old Moorish Idol. I bought three more, but none made it past a couple of months.Then I have had a couple of algae blooms that just wouldn't go away so it was nearly impossible to see into the tank for months. The fish I had survived that and I finally got it cleared up. I even got two new fish last week and they are doing great. Overall my tank is doing pretty well. But I am still basically in cruise control, and don't tend to post very much these days. I basically have very little to say. Best of luck setting the tank back up. I know it will be awesome. My current fish list in the 240 gallon is: Koran Angel, Annularis Angel, Queen Angel, Rock Beauty, Double Saddle Butterfly, Reef Butterfly, Jacknife, Porcupine Puffer, Royal Gramma, Powder Blue Tang. Then I have a 10 gallon tank with an Ocellaris clown and a Percula clown, plus some Grandis Palys.

    Forums vs Social Media

    I still like the forums. However, I have reached a point where my tank is relatively in autopilot. I spend next to nothing on it except food or if some issue arises. I find that most of the posts are selling posts, either tanks being shut down, or someone selling equipment or livestock. Since I am not much in the market, I don't really look at those threads. Since Photobucket messed with everyone, I also find it to be a pain to post pictures, so I don't do that either. Additionally, I have been in the hobby for 44 years now, and there aren't many situations that I have questions about anymore. So my presence here is much reduced. That being said, I'd rather look at the Forum than the Facebook page.

    Kirk - my tank was cloudy for months. I tried many things, including a massive water change, and a UV and that did not do the trick. The only thing that worked that I could find was a diatom filter. After using the diatom filter religiously for a week or two, my water was very clear for quite a while. It has become cloudy again though. I ran the diatom filter for a few days but not long enough to clean it up. I am hoping if I leave it alone, it will eventually subside after it consumes whatever nutrients it is living on, but if it doesn't clear up in the next few months I will go back to work with the diatom filter. Sorry to hear about all your troubles. I am sure it will turn around for you soon. I will say that I believe that my troubles began when battling uronema. I wiped that out with chloroquine phosphate. But I also think it killed the algae that was living in the tank. Which put nutrients in the tank. So a bacterial or other bloom occurred, which I could not get rid of except by the diatom filter. I had another outbreak of uronema a short while ago, and repeated the whole mess, though to a lesser extent this time..

    Mistakes in Reefing

    Eric has been teasing us with this tank since 2013. I think he even put water in it for a day once. Purely a tease, I tell ya! If I had a 300 DD, it would be filled as quickly as humanly possible.
