    Update on these guys. All is well and they have doubled in size! Found a few more shortly after my first post. A week ago had a couple die do to some kind of slime/bacteria that was covering the two anemone. I think it was caused by some leftover food. With a new total of 20 babies! I hope to not have anymore loses.

The first upcoming event is the January Meeting on January 12, starting at 4pm. We will be discussing tank and equipment upgrades.

    WE ARE MOVED IN!!!!!! Christmas also gave me a little time to work on the tank this week and evening after the kids go to bed are my fish tank time (unless its wife time :love1:) I was able to move all the live rock that was outside inside my "safe room". Its a room off my fish room that has 8" of concrete on all sides. In all actuality, it was cheaper to make the room than it was to fill it up with pea gravel to pour the front porch. So i have plenty of storage. I then put 3 of the 55g barrels in the final resting place. I then got the back of the tank skinned and the foldable walkboard installed. Also added plugs on the wall on a GFCI. These will be for my powerheads. Got some Salt for Christmas!!! Still need more though Finally a FTS in the basement Family room. I still am going to build a bar behind the couch that the 4 bar stool sit behind. This should give eating space during ballgames or watching movies. Last but not least!!!!! My new MERMAN!!!!!! Not really, its just me in the tank before I drained the freshwater leak test. 3 weeks and no leaks, not even a hint of bowing in the walls or glass.

    The tank was running with fresh water in it this weekend. I had to replace a seal on the reeflo hammerhead and there is still a small leak, i hope to fix it soon. I got a new GFCI circuit on a switch for the powerheads. I had to use a GFCI because there are plug in on the wall surrounding the tank. I aint takin no risks!!! I installed the cabinets in the fish room to create a nice working area and storage. I hope to someday paint them gray like the color on the stands. We move into the new house this weekend. So i hope to have alot more time after the kids go to bed to work on the tank. Things I still need to do: Put a plywood skin around the back side of the tank and paint it gray. Put another coat of black epoxy on top of wall. Build water changing station in corner between sink and refugium with the 4 55g barrels that are holding rock and sand. Make a walkway around the tank that folds down when not in use. This should be high enough that i can reach most of the tank when walking on it. Build light racks for main tank and frag tank. (recommendations for blue actinics to go with my MHs?) Build rock wall

    Last week i got the glass installed on the back viewing area and finished some of the drains and electrical. Im waiting on the internet to get installed in the house to setup my smart things switches. Finally I have water!!!!! I just did a leak test yesterday and after 28 hours things are all good. I hope to have all the plumbing up and running on monday to test the rest of the plumbing.
