    Just wondering about what you wrote...
    How are your eyes?
    My thoughts are... If you have never seen them, You may need magnification.
    I did. Of course I'm older than you, I think.

    Generally RBs, AEFW, nudis etc. are passed from reefer to reefer via infected tanks, most wholesalers are surprisingly clean. You're more likely to see pests at your LFS that does trades with hobbyists.

    Frag swap.
    Added these to the tank after dipping and careful inspection.
    1.Eddie's purple monster from Iani
    2.Blue millipora from Seminolcpa
    3.Red prostrada from sfsuphysics
    4.ORA scripps green stag from Cwolfus
    5. Aust. Delicate Acro from ?Dwayne? I can't read the writing too well.
    #5 was 80% rock so I cut the frag off and remounted it to avoid possible pests.
    did a 10% water change today.
    I want to hook up a frag tank that I am working on.
    I need time to take some pics

    35 ppt Salinity standard from BAR helps me out!
    I was testing my water for the usual stuff and saw the nice little bottle I picked up at the frag swap.
    I tested my refractometer with the BAR 35 ppt Salinity Standard.
    It seems as though it was off (the refractometer) giving me a low reading.
    I have been running my tank at about 37.8 ppt. or 1.028 specific gravity.
    My hydrometer was also off by the same amount.
    I have since corrected the meter and the salinity.
    Thanks again BAR!!!!
