  1. Cut a torch that was getting to big and one of the heads had the side break off. My euphyllia corals always split heads and before the completely split they begin to split again. This makes cutting frags difficult and one of the frags I cut had the side sheer off with some tentacles attached. I cracked a frogspawn once before but it healed up with no issue but this is the first time I actually had a piece break all the way off. Any advice, what are the odds it survives and heals? Also is there a way to promote splitting completely before splitting again? I have attached a pic of the damaged frag and a pic of the remaining portion of the colony that has 7ish partially split heads all still attached with flesh.
  2. Where you located? You up for a trade?
  3. Same light I use on my ATS on one side. It works great.
  4. The worst stuff always happens when away, if only the lottery had those odds.
  5. Lets see some full tank shots. My E170 with added sump.
  6. +1 for cuttlefish, Woodys Seahorse is really good to.
  7. I would be more then happy to donate a frogspawn and hammer frag.
  8. Sorry to hear, I loved your shop and every time I came in it was better then before.
  9. I would love to have that guy for a while. I have a frogspawn and hammer frags I could trade if you are interested.
  10. You could add a little alk to your ATO to slowly bring up the alk in your tank. If your not dosing daily yet, and your tank is consuming alk you may want to add 2 dosing pumps and start dosing alk and cal. The kamoer dosing pumps are cheap and people seem to be liking them. Reef Builders actually just said they are in top 10 reefing products of 2019.
  11. I use finnex heaters with digital controller built into them, but my apex is what actually controls the temp. If the apex were to ever fail on, the built in thermometer in the heater should control the temp. My tank stays steady 77.6 - 77.8, usually just bounces between 77.7 and 77.8. I will have to say the finnex built in controller temp is way off, I have them set to 83 to keep temp at 78 if I were to not rely on the apex.

    Well if it pulls thru and grows to a point where I can frag it, the first frag has your name on it 😉

    Im not ruling out it could be something else but it sure would be a weird coincidence of events. This morning I looked at the garf bonsai and possibly it may survive, polyps still green, just the skin around them has bleached. Got my fingers crossed.

    Im pretty sure rust is what did it. Especially since it was just flaking small chunks/dust off the treads of the clamp as I loosened it. I would have been more doubtful if it were just a chunk of rust, but I think it ended up being a fine dust it just entered the water column instantly. I wonder how long it will take to get enough out of the system to be acro safe again. Im also nervous it may end up in the sand bed and laying dormant till something stirs it up.
