  1. Actually ended up borrowing couple peppermint shrimp that cleared this issue in a few days. I was a bit hesitant, as they didn't work the last time, but this time they did a great job.
  2. Damn, this really bums me out. My girls and I always loved visiting Kenna when we could. Usually on a rainy day, or a cold winter day. Sadly we were not able to spend as much time as we would like there over the years due to other commitments.
  3. Wish we could make it, but its in the thick of softball season. Hopefully next time. Have fun everyone!
  4. So Saturday when the lights came on I noticed something looked odd within the tank. Upon further inspection, I saw my Meteor Shower Cyphastrea I got from @Gonzo620 was showing signs of melting away. Tested the tank, and everything was well within levels I'm happy keeping, and my tank has always been happy with. So safe to say, I was pretty upset with it all. The tank has really been acting funny the past couple of months and has been the most frustrating part of this journey so far. I've also been having some issues with aiptasia, and have been looking for some Berghia Nudibranches locally with no luck so far. I'm not sure where the aiptasia has come from, as I dip all of my corals, as well as removing them from the plug they come from, and gluing them to a new plug before they go into the tank. Frustration to the max. Yesterday was waterchange day since I was at the Indy 500 all day Sunday. I decided that things needed a bit of a change, so I did a little rearranging within the tank. I rotated the main rock a bit, and re-glued some corals to the rockwork. I also vacuumed the sand in the spot where the rocks used to sit, as there was a bit of detritus in those spots. Eventually I got to a point where I was happy with it, and let it be. I also removed the spinstream nozzle and stuck on the stock nozzle. I'm trying to do everything I can do to save things and promote health and growth in my corals. Even looking for an AI Prime to replace the Kessil I'm running now. I'm going to give it a few months and see where we are at the end of the summer. Hopefully the next few posts within this thread will be on the positive side. At least for those still following. If it all fails, I will be doing a complete overhaul of the tank, and a new approach, but hopefully we never get there.
  5. I don’t know where these bastards came from, as I dip and always put frags on new plugs, but they are multiplying in my tank. I’ve tried peppermint shrimp in the past but they don’t tend to work I know there are products and methods to remove as well but I want to do it as naturally as possible That’s where Berghia Nudibranches come into play. I really don’t want to remove all my coral and start with new live rock I also don’t want to loose all my coral to these stinging little mother effers. So I’m hoping maybe someone here has a couple I could borrow for awhile or possibly sell to me. If not maybe recommend somewhere where I might be able to purchase. Please INDMAS, you’re my only hope.....
  6. Starting to wish I went with the AI Prime light vs the Kessil. I have pretty steady parameters, weekly water changes, and feed my corals, but growth has stalled. My zoa's and paly's are stretching too. I can only think that the culprit is the light. 🤷‍♂️ Does anyone have a spare Prime they want to get rid of, or let me borrow to see if my corals bounce back?
  7. I sure hope so. It’s one of my favorites in my tank right now. It’s nice and “fluffy” tonight too.
  8. LOL swimming happily in that Walmart water @ryansweet
  9. Flame away, lol. It works for me. My water sucks so bad where I live an ro/di unit would probably give up after a year.
  10. Couple new photos from last night. Met up with Ryan Tuesday night to grab a frag from him. Gotta say its a beauty and I cant wait for it to get bigger.
  11. SuP3rMaN0814 I also use Instant Ocean in my nano. Actually using the reef crystals from IO. For water, and I may get flamed for this, but I just use Distilled Water from Walmart. I have been using it since I started my tank over 2 years ago.
  12. Looks fantastic! Love these little nano’s. I also am running the A80. 👍🏼
  13. Looks great! What type of tank is it? I'm running a AIO 10 gallon, and I've never seen one that looks like that. Very cool.
