Been flirting with one of those for a while. Just couldn't find one.

Do you have a full tank shot?

First I'd like to say thanks to everyones advice and help getting the tank back in line.

I lost some coral, mostly my Ricordia mushrooms.   Come to find out I had a bad test kit. My wife took my water to Aquatic Dreams and she told me my Alk tested fine so either she misunderstood or they made a mistake because it was sky high. So after several water changes things are back in order.

I'd also like to thank those who helped me replace some things that I lost that I really loved.

This hobby is frustrating at times but so rewarding especially when you have the support you have here with this club.

If it's one powerhead, be sure to readjust it every so often to have varied flow through the water column.
