    Strider the tank looks fantastic! Would love to see a fts
    55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013

    20g Long --> currently concoting a build plan

    Check out the journal to follow my 20g SW tank

    72 pounds I think Cliff. Darn your math is good.
    They are down to apple sized pieces of man made rock and are cleaning out their stock so the price went down $2.00 a pound. Best deal I've come across so far. I just may have to go back for some more before it's all gone.

    Thanks HockeyHead. I'll try and get a fts as soon as I get a good one. Me and the camera are still learning.

    OK I just finished playing mad scientist with my reef test kit.
    Readings are;

    Nitrates = 0.0ppm
    Phosphates = 0.0 to 0.25ppm, tough call.
    Calcium = 440ppm
    KH = 143.2ppm

    These all look good. The reason I tested tonight was because my Blue Anthelia coral which I've had since Feb 2013 isn't really looking all that good again. It has a few open "hands" waving in the current but most are closed up tight. I have moved it to a new spot (higher with more current), hoping to see some results but after a day it looks the same. Adding Fuel two nights ago didn't make a change either.
    I have read that Blue Anthelia requires a trace amount of iodine which I was hoping came from the reef crystal salt mix I use when doing water changes. I changed out 25% of the tank water 4 days ago.
    There are about a dozen new Blue Anthelia polyps growing in the live sand down current which are doing great. They just kind of showed up in the past few months.
    The rest of my corals are looking well (the green star polyps vary daily), so I'm not sure if this particular colony is just at it's end. I used an eye dropper to gently wash away any surface debris built up on the rock 2 days ago and only 1 polyp came loose to float down current.
    What am I missing or is this normal for waving hand coral?

    I would think with those parameters and a large water change that all your trace elements should be in line. Are you currently dosing any supplements ?

    I have also ready about waving anthelia to die off in a tank pretty quick and the owner never really being able to determine why it happened. I've never kept that coral before so I'm afraid I can't be very much help here. Perhaps your water is too clean for them ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    At this stage in the game I am not dosing any supplements.

    I think we read the same "die off" posts and the only thing I got out of them was iodine. I may research this a little further.
    There is no bad smell to the rock or the water like some have reported. I'm not seeing dead polyps floating around or laying nearby.
    Thanks for the reply Cliff.

    I've been busy this week checking out all the reef stores within an hours drive from me.
    I've picked up a large feather duster (looks like a Hawaiian but has a soft tail section), some very dark green candy coral, and some sunburst coral polyps.
    After acclimating them this afternoon and using coral Rx on the corals, I've placed them into the tank at what I read was the correct lighting and water flow.
    We'll see in the next few days how it all works out.
    Question; the sunburst coral I was told needs to have every polyp fed as the food isn't divided between them. Is this correct? If it is then thanks in advance Cliff for that plastic bottle top trick. It will keep the cleaner shrimp at bay while I do the feeding.

    I do believe each head on your sun coral needs some food every week or so. At least that was what I have been told by people who keep them and what I have read

    This is so weird. Today I was staring into my tank at about 1:30pm and noticed what looked to be a 1cm long nudibranch of some sort. It looked to be eating the algae on the front glass. I called my son up to have a look at it to confirm what I thought. We both watched this white little creature grazing on the front glass about half way up. I was indecisive about leaving it in or taking it out. I couldn't really see any colours on this creature except white but the body had the nudi shape. As I was getting ready to get the turkey baster out, my Tomato Clown made my decision for me. She came up to the glass and inhaled the white worm like creature, chewed it up and it was gone. Mother Nature at work!.

    Now that doesn't resolve the issue I am having with my 4 different colonies of zoanthid's. They have mainly stayed closed up now for 3 days. Since I added the large feather duster (some white worm like things came out of it's mouth opening after adding it into the tank 3 days ago), there doesn't seem to be alot of zoa activity. I am getting ready to dose my zoa's again with Coral Rx to see what fall out.
    Salinity, water parameters, and lighting all seem stable so I'm thinking it must be a pest of sorts.
    Any one had a large feather duster expel little white worm looking things before? They didn't seem alive when they hit the rock and the fish didn't pay them any attention. I thought it was just feather duster waste at the time.
