Your tank is the best I have seen for that size What is your set up?lights,fuge flow.

FragOutpost 10-03-2005 09:30 PM

Yes it is very nice.
Got any updated photos?
I'm jealous. Especially of those last two photos. :D

Tanks for the compliment but I don't think my tank's the best. I'm still having problems getting everything situated. I have beautyful water parameters but just 2 weeks ago have a massive crash. I lost 4 corals including the last posted above. :crybaby2: It's a 29 gal tank plugged into 2 refugiums / sumps. One is a 30 gal tall fuge and the other is a 20 gal long with a sump. I have approx 50-55 gals of water between the 3 tanks and have over 120 lb of live rock and 100 lbs of live sand. I'm currently running 1 - 250 Watt 20,000 Kelvin metal halide and 4 - 75 Watt actinic VHO over the display. I also have 2 - 36 Watt 50/50 PC bulb fixture over one fuge and another over the other fuge. My water has a tendancy to runn a bit warm meaning 81.7 degrees.

To answer your question about the flow. I have a Mag 9.5 pumping into a SCWD - Squid (best $40 investment :D )

Ouch. I would be :crybaby2: too ... followed by :sad2: after losing those.

Here's a little behind the scene view of my system.

FragOutpost 10-03-2005 10:12 PM

What kind of macro algae do you have in your fuge?

D12monkey 10-03-2005 10:21 PM

I have Feather Calupera and another form that I have another Calupera of which I'm not sure the species.

Yeah jawfish will do that. When I first got my dusky jawfish he would disappear for weeks at a time, usually making a burrow facing the back of the glass. It took a little time to coerce him to make a burrow facing the front glass. I would have to say that the jawfish is one of my favorite fish and one of the reasons keeping me from going barebottom.
I'm not sure if you have kept a jawfish before but when it begins to make a burrow you should "feed" it some small pieces of rubble everyday. When your not looking it will take the rubble and reinforce the inner walls of the burrow. Keep feeding rubble until it has fully established its burrow and stops consuming the rubble you are placing out for it.
Excellent fish. It's construction habits can be very entertaining.

All I can say is wowwww!!

- Massive water change (again) to see if I can stablize the water parameters.

- Upgrade the pluming... Drilled out second 1" bulkhead on the overflow. Now running the Mag 9.5 at full power. Much more turbulence in the water now.

- Re-attached some corals to the liverock.

- Analyzed way to clean up all the extra zoos I have... (Anyone wants some?)

- Final assessment of the damage from the last system crash. (Looks like not going to loose anything else. Brain coral receded a bit and green polyp digitata also receded a bit. But seems to be stabalizing.

Glad to hear that things are looking better for your tank.
I'm sure your tank will recover in no time. :)
