    Bubble coral trouble

    Honestly it looks happy. When they open up big they can’t hold it all up so it will droop a bit, totally normal. As long as the skeleton isn’t punctured through it should be fine. The skeletons are quite sharp especially when they are out of the water, so it’s possible it could have injured...

    Just a little grow out system build.. open to advice and suggestions

    Just a little grow out system build.. open to advice and suggestions

    Well guys, it's been a while. We're still in it. Sorry for the lack of updates.. since kid #4 came, we've been swamped. A lot of the tanks are now wet. We're currently running 9 of the 12, with one of the tanks acting as a remote refugium. There's been some up and downs.. mostly due to...

    Help with RODI

    It looks like you have two carbon stages. Water going through a carbon stage has the chlorine removed. The chlorine is what keeps that algae from growing. Had the same thing happen to all our filters that were past the first carbon stage, that got exposed to sunlight.
