I'm pretty choked about losing the Cardinal to my own stupidity. I mean, I SO knew better! I was just all distracted with all my livestock arriving, and my mom visiting, and I actually got a bad enough case of whiplash earlier that I puked. So, the idea of the rock cycling totally went over my head. I think I was zombie-ish by the time I went to bed.

Aw Ian! It is definitely nice to be able to move livestock over instead of starting from scratch.

I took some pics today. Most corals are looking good. A few pieces have some questionable looking spots where there is some shrunken flesh. I expect that the corals' reactions will take a few weeks to really show up. I have kept the lighting schedule the same as it was on the 33g, as well as the products I dose. I am currently just dosing cal/alk/mg as well as ZeoVit Pohl's Coral Vitalizer and ZeoVit Sponge Power.

My favourite piece (that I've photographed a million times) from Wicked Frags:


Ricordea from Wicked Frags (growing rapidly):


Acan frag from Red Coral in Calgary:


A finger leather I bought to take up some real estate and the Open Brain that is still slowly bleaching...hmmm:

Thanks Doug! I always beat myself up for mistakes that cost a life...especially when it's highly likely that fish was originally collected from the wild, and the fact that Bangaiis are officially an Endangered Species.

Oh Leah I never think of taking photos of the fish! I will try to take some. They are so fast, and I really haven't figured out my new camera very well for the tank yet. The Kole tang has mysteriously darkened up...he looks more "normal" than he did a couple months ago. The lost soul frag (Cyphastrea) probably won't make it. I'm hoping enough of it lives to be able to stay alive, but most of the flesh has come off now. No worries though...if that's the only casualty to the move, I really couldn't ask for much more, right!

I started dosing 3 mL per day ZEOvit B-Balance on June 13th (just writing this out for my own records lol).

Oh ya, fish pics...they are on the camera right now. Just for you Leah! I will try to post them shortly here, but I'm really busy this morning!!

I can't for the life of me get a pic of the Bangaii. She hides 24/7. However, the Kole and Perc love the camera! Notice the Kole is still more yellow than a typical Kole tang, but has changed back to the color he was when I bought him. *grumble*



Here's a FTS for you JDigital...well kind of (you can find a better one on the last page)! I took a pic when I was just starting to do the plumbing. It's still not running right now, but it is all ready to go. I'm just waiting for my next days off to get it going so I can monitor for leaks. It should have been done before the livestock arrived, but I'm always late.



And here's a pic of the bigger portion of my RBTA. The other one is hiding under the rocks in the dark, and doesn't look as good. I hope it is ok. I hope it moves out too! My Perc is hanging out in the hidden one. For some reason I just can't get the true color of my RBTA on my camera. It's brighter in person.

Look at that, all bubbly again. I've noticed that on some of mine too that after a split they go back to looking like that. Never lasts though..
