at least i didnt describe it as a hairy A##.... Sometimes simple is better. If I coulda I would have kept it simple but the tank had to match the following pic or else..

Just came home from opening a house for a drunk lady whom peeved me off royally. And my tank actually cheered me up. I peeked down one end and saw an amazing photo op. and I must say my iPhone did this justice. My new favourite pic of my tank

So it was a sad day today as my fave coral and centerpiece was rotting away and dieing he hyndophoria has been turning white and my water quality has been going down hill due to the die off. I have fragged it now which was not a fun feat firstly I had to remove it from the tank and surprise it didn fit my opening I had to have the wife hold it while I removed my light enough to lift it through the top. She was a real trooper putting it on my work table until one of the two emerald crabs residing in it crawled out and nipped her. But all fun aside from the fun and games my poor colony has now become a forest to chose which frag if survives will be the mark 2 I ran out of frag glue as well if they dont die some will be available for sale for a time.



My now hydnophoria forest and full frag rack

Yeah they are of great size the main issue is no one really likes them lol so most will more than likely get thrown away I just want to wait and pick the nicest one to replace the mother colony

So as I posted awhile back I was fighting algae by the mother load. I was determined to wipe it out as soon as possible and ordered a seahare from pat as well as algae fix made by API. Regretfully algae fix isn't sold in Canada and you have to order it from the us.

Anyways not completely sure if it was the seahare or the chemical or both but I am happy with the results the algae is basically eradicated now most turned white and disintegrated and what didn't the seahare. My bed up. Anyways ill post two pics as a comparison so you can see the results

Before



After
