    I still have all of the rock with coral in with the fish. I’ll be watching for the cycle. In addition to all of the new sand I also added a number of bags of live sand. All of the rock is and has been kept alive so there shouldn’t be too many issues.

    It was looking good when I left this afternoon. I could see through it by the time I left. It wasn’t clear but it was progress!

    Did you put the marine pure blocks back in?

    Two of them are in there already, but one is still in with the fish and coral.

    Just the T-5’s, but the water is clear and looking good. I’ve got to get my ATO set up and maybe the Apex.

    Fish and coral made the transfer today and so far so good! Here is the view from my desk. I still have a lot of cleaning to do. IMG_3055.JPG

    So I lost three fish my blue hippo tang, naso tang, and my flame angel. Everyone else made it. Now I need basic coral colonies. I would like some simple ones like pocillopora and birdsnest. I would also like some easy and fast growing plating montipora.

    Ill bet the fish are happy to be in their new home. I can likely still get a decent chunk of idaho grape monti, and a slimer if you want them

    That would be cool! Should probably let things settle down for a week or two and make sure I don't have a minicycle though.

    Shaquille O’Eel seemed pretty happy and now you can see him all the time not just when he comes out to eat!

    Couple of new additions today! Two nice sized tangs! A male Naso and Vlamingi. The Vlamingi is probably a good 15” and I’d say the Naso is 7-8”. Vlamingi is a big baby and would hide every time I came near the tank. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Do you like clams? There's a big clam at The Fish Crew that they're selling for I think $175. It could use a nice big home like your tank. IMG_20180708_130008_HDR.jpg

    Hey Mike -

    I have some overgrown Monti caps that are desperately in need of fragging, you're welcome to grab some big chunks if you are ever in the area and want to stop by - I'm in central Denver near City Park and the zoo.
