So I picked up all my live sand and live rock from Dan (Dano) today!! It's all in the tank and I am about 20g short on RO water I am so annoyed! I wanted to get all this done earlier and had to take my mom to do a few things that took way longer than I wanted and now Aquatica is closedDisapprove

Everything is moved over!!! Question how long does it take for your corals to be happy again? Mine all look pretty bad today but I tested all my params and needed to get the cal and alk up a bit so working on that but everything else was in check.
I will post pics soon tank still has a bit of a cloud to it:)

Get a flood light that has the CF inside the hosing.  They will say 6500K for spectrum.  8 dollars at Home Depot.  Perfect for the macros.

Or, you can mount a MH in there and double it as a frag tank. lol
