Update time.

Let's do a good news post first, the crappy news post can wait, lol.

So one of the great things is that Hunggi74 lent me his back up T5 fixture. Thanks Hung!
Here it is before I removed the Kessils.



Stoopid happy! Should have gone T5 from the start. The Kessils were nice, but I don't think I was using them properly.
Here's a pic of my Forest Fire Digi, notice the polyp-less body from the shadows cast by the LED's.



...and the same piece at about 4 weeks of T5's shining down.



Next was to finally build the screen. Still can't believe I lost 2 Longnose Hawks.









And some new livestock, I'll let the pics speak for themselves.













































Probably the last good news post for a while, if ever, lol.

Thanks for looking.

Wow awesome tank, what did you use to build that screen? Starting to add some fish to my tank and definitely don't want any accidental jumpers. I'd love to see the tank in real life one day!

Just a window screen kit from HD, Revy etc. Hard part is finding some clear mesh, usually somebody here has some. Come come.

Nice pics Warren! Glad to hear things are finally turning the corner for you. By the way did you keep those kessils? They make nice night lights...

Thanks fellas, trying to follow in your footsteps.

Update.

I'm one of the laziest people I know. I've had this fixture for months... and just hung it today. ATI 8 x 39W.

Coral +
Actinic

Bubble algae still completely out of control. Looks as if the only way to remove it will be with tweezers. Sigh.



Forgot to mention, I lost a few Montis because of these little buggers... Montipora Eating Nudibrachs... the reason for my adding 3 wrasses at once.
You can see them munching on a Rainbow Monti on the left. If there's one thing I've learnt from my short time in this hobby, it's proper inspection, dipping, and QT of corals entering your tank.
Due to the mistakes I've made, I'm planning an independent frag tank system specifically for proper quarantine and treatment of current, and future corals.



HAPPY EASTER!!!

He is very selective about who he shows what. He hasn't even shown me his tank yet if it makes you feel better?
