9/1/05 was hell! I found my tank leaking along the bottom seal. I had to remove EVERYTHING from the tank and drain it to get it repaired.
9/11/05 Returned the live rock and most of the fish and corals to the tank.
9/15/05 Things look good other than the blue tang was lost at some point
10/01/05 Built the water change system stand and moved the flowerpot and meat coral back to the 120. Both BTA split, it may have been caused by the stress of the power outage caused by Rita. I ordered a Ozone generator and ORP probe. Should get them next week.
10/22//05 Removed clown pair and placed them in the automatic water change sump with a BTA.
11/12/2005 Added a 10,000 BTU/hr window AC unit to help keep the fish room comfortable
12/22/2005 Coco worm lost one of its heads today and has not been opening during the day. I have been having problems low pH and think it is due to poor air circulation in the room. I have purchased a new exhaust fan and will be installing it soon. I also unfortunately lost m nice green millepora that I got from City Pets. Within 3 days all of the tissue was lost to an infection. I removed the new elegance coral from the main tank after the flame angle had been picking on him. Hopefully it will recover in the refugium.
1/2/2006 Sold the 37 Gallon setup.
3/1/2006 got the Tunze magnet holder and attached my Seio 820 to it.
6/3/2006 Well my Turquoise Blue Millepora from FragsNCrabs decided to RTN on me today. I removed the colony and treat it for 6 minutes with Kent TechD. In related bad news I found the skeleton of my small tuxedo urchin and have not seen my larger (older one in a long time). Added about 30 oz more sand to the front of the tank.
6/16/06 It looks like I saved the millepora, and I saw the large tuxedo urchin so things are going better than I thought!
4/1/2007 I won the March MARSH TOTM!! Unfortunately my tank didn't seem to respond very positively to the fame. I added a 150w MH and bleached a very large portion of the purple digitata. I went ahead and removed most the the colony. Another loss that I had was the pink birdnest that I got from Frags N Crabs back in 4-23-05 for $5. It had grown so much that it came un attached from the rock I mounted it to and then became unhappy and slowly began to die.
I had bought two really nice hairy ORA frags from T&T several weeks ago. They never extended their polyps in my tank and I removed the brow one from my tank on 4/4/07.
Removed the red donut coral from the refugium.. It had been slowly dying for several months. 9/9/07
For the past week and a half I have had bacteria problems with my yellow torch coral. I have just been cutting the "bad" stalks off. 12/10/07
