    The lid looks great! How long did it take for them to get you the lid?

    yes the mesh is replaceable. it's the same as changing a window screen.

    as for the frags, they were from a local reefer who gave me a good deal on a frag pack.

    my next shipment of frags will be more higher end including a walt disney and bunch of old school ora pieces. future dbtc sps.

    man. why is everyone asking about those picture frames? frames were from ikea. pictures were prints from walgreens when they had the two free 8 x 10 promotion.

    just a quick update. went bare bottom and couldnt be more pleased. added a jaebo ow40 wave pump. moved some corals around and added a chalice section in my tank. letting some sps grow and encrusted some more before adding more. thinking of removing the two 8x8x4 marine pur blocks cause a fellow reefer said it leaches aluminum, but everything seems fine.[​IMG][​IMG]

    not much of an update. tank is now about 10 months. been trying to lower alk to at least 8 but has been closer to 9 for 2 months. trying to do do biweekly 25% water changes with red sea blue bucket 7.7 alk levels, but still sticks at 9. not dosing anything. anyone have any other things I should look into? was going to let it go down naturally until colors on some sps browning and some has shows slow signs of stn.

    alk 9
    ca 440
    mag 1360
    no3 2ppm
    po4 .003
