I just switched to a Chaeto fuge a couple of weeks back. Was running just rock and no light. Using cheapo LED grow lights and see the Chaeto growing, albeit slow. The only place I ever see pods is in my overflow. None in tank nor in fuge area. Since the switch Cyano has been rearing it's head. Maybe I'll try a stronger light.

24 hours after putting the A80 on my refugium and the cyano that's been on my sand lately is gone. Coincidence?

Can you believe the nerve of this person standing just a few feet from my tank after smashing a window to get in and steal our Colorado Sunburst Anemones?

They're still at large! If you hear anything, please contact the Adams Country Sheriff's Department at 303-288-1535

Sometimes I just don't understand people.

Was this your store? I don't recognize it. I saw this on the fb sunburst thread. Under two minutes in and out

In the store that I work at where I keep my tank. They were very quick and deliberate.

The little air pump driven IM skimmer went back on the tank today. I miss the pH bonus that comes from aeration.

This Week my Ecodrift pump bit the dust. I'm going to try running this tank without a power head for awhile and see how it goes. I also added a couple new hammer corals including a yellow one.

Found some pictures this morning of the tank that haven't been shared yet, so here we go.

Also, I've been making some big changes to the tank recently. More pictures to come soon of what's new.

Corals are really beginning to overgrown this tank, so this week I had to make some pretty drastic choices. The euphyllia I've had on the back wall for years now finally began to crowd each other out as well as put shade on a huge chunk of rock. They were moved to another system to continue growing. My acan garden has also been having some space issues between each other as well as being stung back by montipora. Most of them have been moved out turning this back into the chalice tank it was always meant to be. Should have room to continue growing for some time now.

My tank is finally starting to look natural to me after moving things around quite a bit. It's amazing how much that can throw off your perception for awhile.

Recently my JF "Crazy Fox" underwent the strangest color change (first picture below). No real changes to speak of that would have caused it, but it still seems healthy and I kind of like the new colors. It might just be a sign that it's time to trim down the gorgonian again...
