    Thanks. These pics are a little old. I had a bryopsis outbreak a few months ago and had to remove all the macros from the sump while I was treating with Tech M. I've now got frags in the sump and just a small wad of chaeto and I pulled put all the sand.

    Thanks. What should I watch out for with the favias? Stinging adjacent corals, or over running growth?

    great way to aquascape w/ 2 different sized pillars, the clean look & spacing make it look superb! Not being overstocked with too many corals or rocks is a big plus.

    Here's the tank update: A few days before I was leaving on a two week vacation, a snail crawled in the overflow and, well, caused an overflow. This shorted out the power supply for the light, so a new AI Hydra light and controller were hastily ordered and temporarily installed the day before I left on vacation. I guess I set the new light on too high and came back to some bleached corals. Everything seems to be recovering with no losses, but it's all lacking color.

    New corals came in from Jason Fox today. I was lacking reds, so decided to drop some cash on a frag farmer's red staghorn, pro corals rainbow acro, tyree pink lemonade (has been on my "to buy" list for a long time) and a rainbow montipora. Sorry, no pics of them yet, but here's a few from a few days ago:

    New additions just out of quarantine. Redspot cardinals.

    Started with a school of five from divers den. They started picking each other off one by one overnight. I'm hoping that will stop now that they are in the larger tank. They all survived the first night.

    Built an enclosure for the new light this weekend and it only took one trip to TAP plastics and one trip to the hardware store. Crummy pic of the light, but you can see everyone in the tank. I still haven't solved the dilemma of the the black power cord (wireless electricity?)

    [​IMG]

    Sidenote: The old light now has a new power supply, but it doesn't really fit in my sump enclosure, so it needs to go on sale. If anyone is looking for a 16K maxspect razor (120w version) shoot me a PM, I'd rather it go to someone local.
