    1st of all, I don't trust the alk test since it's not a titration test, that just looks like the closest color.

    2nd, the frag wasn't much better the day I brought it home even before dipping and aclimating (not blaming that on you Sergio, it had a rough day and has been getting worse so my tank may not be helping it)

    3rd, I wasn't knocking you Norm, I was just saying I thought my water was 1.026 until I used your calibration fluid so if anything I was pointing the finger at my refractometer being off, not you :)

    Yup Norm, I tested your solution to some pinpoint 53.0mS calibration fluid. I had to double check it, jk. Its exactly the same.

    Thanks. I'll pick up a test tomorrow to make sure. I've done well with all my other LPS's to date so I have my hopes up.

    Well, check your alk test with the 3.8meq/l alk standard that got passed out at the swap. That's what it's for :D

    Hehe... I'm a pyromaniacal chem and science geek from way back. I had no choice. That what happens to overweight, glasses wearing, no friend having, last one picked for kickball playing, only asian kids at school :D

    When my boss talks to me at work, he says, "You and your friend, Ted Kaczynski..."

    Anyways, I geeked out on the swap chem goodies. There shouldn't be any problems with them :D

    Thanks Norm, I didn't trust the test enough to even waste your control fluid :)

    So what do think, safe to start moving it into the light? It's filling back in nicely and I saw a hint of sweepers before I disturbed it to take this picture.

    Don't go too crazy with it Levi, they don't like a lot of light, and once they bleach it's hard to get them to color back up ;)

    Mine is doing quite well ;D thanks Sergio!

    Don't worry, I was just referring to getting out from the shaded area. I plan on leaving it a few inches off the bottom for a while.

    ok i have 1 more frag ready ....pick a # from 1- 10 and let me know your lighting set up and how long your set up has been running.

    I'm going to pick 3. BUT...I want to get a picture of a chalice that I have to compare which might be the same. It was purchased as Brick Red Chalice from Tyree at the BACFM. And I am running a 250 radium over a 40g, but the tank has many different light zones (dedicated frag tank). Tank has been running sorta for 1.5y but also only 5 months. (I moved and re-setup and expanded from the 14BC + 10g frag to a dedicated 40g frag)

    actually, I wanted to move my frag into a bit higher light (it is shaded right now) and take a photo to compare to yours :)

    Must frag 2 more before trading, or selling

    Forgot to add that this is a very low light chalice. Too much light will cause it to pale.

    If nobody is going to chime in.... (same caveat as other piece.. although I can swing by too Bryan if I can't make Saturday).. although if someone else wants in, just put me in line for either or, don't want to see too greedy here :)
