    I might also consider using the dry rock in the library since I’ll be adding water next week and use some of the live rock from the library in the classroom.

    Either way, I’d try to get as much of those polyps off as possible (hammer and chisel if you have to!). Maybe then you could go after the survivors with kalk paste for a few weeks.

    I will probably remove other corals that I want to keep and cook the rock with the yellow polyps.

    What’s the plan to cook it? Safety first!

    You put it in a pot and boil it right? The steam is supposed to be exfoliating right?
    Lol this is a joke. Don’t do this.

    I’m just kidding! I will probably put it in a brute cover and raise the temp.

    I assume you are being sarcastic here. Dont want any newbies to get the wrong idea and end up in the hospital.

    That’s why I immediately followed it with “I’m just kidding.”

    I could not tell if you need more pendants. If you do, send me a PM with what you want and I will buy them and donate them to your project.

    Good thing you said it was a joke just saved me from a disaster. Looking forward to seeing this thing up and running.

    So where is this tank at? I’m in Aurora but not familiar with Aurora Quest?

    Quest is the K-8 that I teach at. Right now the tank is sitting and waiting to be put up outside my classroom.

    Cool. When the coralline is coming in nice, stop by for a bunch of high end acropora frags... I am happy to donate to a Halide tank.

    Stopped and grabbed some scrap acrylic at Plasticare to make my in sump mangrove sand box.

    Any updates on the move? Dates in mind? My wife’s parents will be in town in a few weeks. Any chance we can schedule it then so I have an excuse to escape?

    Planning to pull coral, rock, and fish on the 16th. Hoping to get the plumbing done before moving the tank into place that week. I’d like to move the tank like the 23rd.

    I have to wait for the custodians to strip the floor and wax it.

    Hey man, I picked up some live rock from Chris down south, between that and what was in my 75g, I have maybe 50+ ibs if you’d like.

    It’s dry now, but free for your project if you’d like
