    Sarah's new 60 gallon!

    looking good! Great to see all that beautiful coralline. All it takes is one fraction of an asterina on a frag plug to wipe it out. Happened to me :(

    Real Ocean Water is wayyy too salty?

    +1 refractometer. When I started I didn't know what that was, until I lost half my coral.

    sump design question

    26 gallon up top. Not sure I really need it. Haven't had algae issues in my 20gal apart from the 4 month cyano syndrome. Definitely looks interesting though. Reading up on it.

    sump design question

    Ah, I forgot to mention. I have no floor space left. Skimmer, return pump, and other small things take up almost all the little room I have.

    sump design question

    Yes, I agree. The bio chamber was actually an afterthought and I sort of regret not planning it into my sump design. I was thinking maybe a 6" cube suspended on the inner right wall of the left side and have a y line from the return pump push water though. What do you think?

    Is my frogspawn forming "heads"?

    yep, it be a growing when you see it splitting like that. when you see a bubble, it's also growing. the other, more uncommon means of reproduction is by polyp bailout. When it gets stressed it'll pop off a polyp or two in hopes of finding new territory.

    New Mandarin

    +1 white and dead looking at night. After about 3 months he stopped turning white. I'm thinking that was when he didn't feel threatened anymore as he sleeps out in the open now.
