What clowns are in there now?
Do you still have the "naked"?
Now I know I gave you more than 6 anemones, or did you just pick out the larger ones?
Glad to hear the tank is doing well - Happy new year bud! It's an even one!
I just picked out the larger ones. The smaller ones are going to new homes.
Sup C...Happy new years to you too. We're going to Boston this year to check out the
G-men make their title run.
Sadly no more naked. I'm thinking of getting some buckshots or the like.
FTS? Those corals must have grown out a little by now!
If you do
Keep me posted
I'm looking for midnight and or dominos
I see that the population has changed over time
Fish looking phat and happy!
I have a large coris wrasse and marine beta that didn't come out for the video. Unfortunately I lost a few yellow tangs (except one), potters angel, clownfish, & my trio of Japanese swallow tails during the ich outbreak of '15.
I feel your fish loss pain
Onward and upward
Feed the fish, change some water
May this year be better than the last
Best fishes to ya
YES!!!! Jim, the tank looks great. LOVE the monster sailfin! Congrats!

The culprit of the ich outbreak was a multicolor angel that was added to the main display a bit to early...a expensive and heartbreaking lesson.
I might be getting rid of the coris and marbled wrasse so I can add more clowns, smaller wrasses, some dither fish, & maybe some bellus or wantanabes angels.
The tank is always a work in progress. Yes...the sailfin is definitely a "fillet
able " size.
Update on the sulfur denitrator. I'm getting a reading of 10 ppm or less. I also increased the drip rate to 4-5 drips per second. I suspect the rapid drop in nitrates is due to the fact there was already existing bacteria in the water from the carbon dosing.
I really liked the sulfur based denitrator, that's what took care of nitrates in my tank, just keep an eye for any clogs in the effluent or your wife will be really mad, your kids would probably be blaming each other...
I opted for a reactor fed from the drain; power supply issues and old fused based wiring at home limited the amps I was able to draw so I sold the Midwest unit to Ed.
I think you may not experience a clogged reactor maybe due to the recirculating pump but just keep an eye on it.
Is that a xenia forest on the right of the tank?
