    You need to post tank shot so everyone can see what they missed yesterday.

    Quick tank shot. I’ve been taking some large colonies out and removing some rock as well. Just put a few tiny Frags of mixer stuff in yesterday (thanks to my friends Andrew and Chris) hopefully things will grow in again nicely.

    Tanks look great! Is that a frag rack taken over by zoas in the top left?

    Seems to be opposite of the "norm". I have seen a few tanks in the past where they got zoas to grow up and down the back wall of the tanks.

    Just found this graph interesting. The yellow/orange is the ph probe reading and the black is the soda ash/alkalinity dosing record.

    Have you seen a significant increase in required dose of alk with the rise in ph.

    Yes but I’m not sure which came first... the chicken or the egg. The soda ash causes an increase in ph. If you recall a few weeks ago my salinity was pretty high. Everything fell back into place as I corrected that problem.

    Thanks Seth! My bad phone pics don’t do it any justice.
