Moving fast Bob.  

I'd be really worried about those idols.  

But the corals look fantastic.

Changed out the carbon & GFO from the reactors last night.

Also ran a full battery of water tests:
 
SG = 1.0255
temp = 75.7 - 77.0 F ( 24 hr max swing)
pH = 8.2
dKH = 9.4
Ca = 390ppm (I dosed some calcium after testing)
Mg = 1450ppm
nH3 = 0ppm
nO2 = 0ppm
nO3 = 0ppm
pO4 = 0.03ppm
Cu = 0ppm
 
I think it fair to say that, after running 72 days there was no measureable longer - term 'cycle' on this system. nH3 peaked @ less than 2 ppm on day 5 - and was again 0ppm by evening on day 6 - nO3 peaked at 10ppm on day 28 and was only above 0ppm for 4 days...
 
The Idols are eating mysis, brine shrimp, Emerald Entree, LRS Reef Frenzy. The larger one (female) also takes Spectrum pellets. I have been leaving a 1/2 sheet of Nori hanging to encourage grazing.

Another week and still looking good.
 
Tests were all same results w/ following exceptions:
 
Ca = 420ppm (up from 390ppm last week)
pO4 = 0.02ppm (down from 0.03ppm last week)
 
 
Took a bunch of photos on Saturday 05 / 16 - Day 78 of the new 150g Reef:

Sunday, I took a little drive up to Bird World / Pet Village in Bountiful just to check things out.
 
Found this little beaut while I was there:
 
 
 
 
Now, black is not a color you see too often in a reef; so when the opportunity presented itself I had to grab
this sweet 3" Black Ultra Maxima clam from Doug Clap
 
 
Here it is, getting all cozy next to its big brother the 6" Gold Maxima:

Been awhile; tank has changed somewhat...


Took out a whole section of live rock a few months back.

Took a couple of random shots this afternoon -
