    That sucks, sorry to hear about your lost Arnold.

    I'll give you some frags to help with re-stocking.

    thanks again everyone - I feel the love. I really don't want to ask for many frags right away, I want to make sure the tank is fully stable before I put other people's corals at risk. I am going through the light algae diatom phase on the glass. Its doing better now. should be fine in 2 weeks for stuff. I am down to 2 clams....the real big ones 10 inches each....need to get some more. Help the ecomony out and such. Even though we just had a layoff today at work. : ( my boss was let go, she was a good boss too.

    Wow Perry, thats alot! - you don't have too know. I think I only signed up for 1 item so I hope I am not taking anything anyways from others. Is there anything I can do in return? I can pay for them if you want, just let me know.

    No problem, Arnold. I got most of those corals free (from frag swap and dbtc) anyway.

    Thanks Perry, I am trying NOT to be a freeloader that is all. I wanted to make the post so someone can learn from my mistakes. I probably should have stayed home from work and worked on the tank the day after.

    Anyways my box of coral should come in next week, hopefully some nice mariculture stuff from Fiji. I will post pics incase you want a frag of anything. If you need stuff let me know, I have pretty good connections with all of the sponsors.

    Thanks Guys - after 1 month and a new box of corals this is what the tank is looking like now.

    Thanks to Ocean Treasures for the box of coral order. Thanks for everyone words of help! Perry your frags are doing well too!

    I added 20 mariculture colonies and I only lost 1 so far.

    Thanks everyone... hopefully it will go in nicely and we can do another SF tank tour again. I was was very sad looking at the tank, so I had to fix it as soon as possible. It was very surprising on how fast the tank stabilized again afterwards... I think 1 week after the event the parameters all came back in line. I hope No one has to go through something like this. I think Rich is having similair issues now.
