    Good luck with the tank transfer Boun. Smart move going with hard to kill corals...that's the route I'm taking.

    Thanks Jim! I am doing the switch tomorrow (Saturday). Hopefully, it goes well. If anyone in the Berkeley area want to hang out tomorrow and give a helping hand send me a PM. I will start the tank tear down at 10am.

    It was a long and tiring few days. I was able to switch over to my new tank. Here are some pictures of the progress. The fishes and corals are still in the brute container. Hopefully, by the end of the week I will finish everything!

    Since iCon updated his tank, I might as well update with a picture of my elos 120 :) I am still dealing with a lot of brown and red slime diatom algae. I need to get some clean up crews in there soon.

    I think the tank needs more lights hanging over it!

    Yes, I need more light. There are two gaps at each corner! :) You have extra that I can put on it. ;)

    I agree not enough lighting. You do know corals need light to photosynthesize right?

    Jokes aside, im liking that brain coral! Is it a Symphyllia?

    Yes, I believe so. I got it from Erin. He can tell you what it is. I need to cut that into 2 or 4 pieces. It's getting too big!

    This guy made me add more lights to my current setup. Must grow acros on the sand!

    You know you have too much light when you can grow sticks in the sump!

    Yes, it's a symphylia
    I bought it from wet pets in San Pablo (closed) about 7 years ago
    When the cutting goes down, I want a piece!
