New Corals include
* Blue Stylophora
* Hystrix Birdsnest
* Light green DW Acro
* Blue Staghorn
* Encrusting ranibow Montipora
* Red/blue, Green, Purple cap montis
* Orange Acan-lord
* Green Duncans

And some others I am spacing... It was a long day gluing frags in place! These were taken at "Dusk" so... hard to get colors to pop

Closed flowerpot... the two black spots are where it stung the sh*t out of my fingertips. WEAR GLOVES (on both hands)

Also "beefed up" the skimmer pump..... 2" intake, 1 1/2" output into the beckett. Big step up in flow from the old pump... just needs some tweaking. Prob going to lower the pump so its more efficent, as lifting water 3' is hard for a pump, vs pushing it. It was 1" into the beckett, and it took some customization to get the larger union in place. Did some "porting and polishing" with the dremel to help flow.

Got the Calcium Reactor plumbed in, and will be hooking up the bottle soon. Need to rebuild the feed manifold as 2 of the 4 crappy ball valves have a drip.

Uploading more pics now... :cheers:

Went up for the first time in 2 months to do controller updates and figure out the problems with the manifold. The shitty SCH 40 ball valves dried out and leak, so I will be revamping the return. We ordered some trick little 3/4" SCH 80 gate valves to fix the problem... So In short I will be chopping the return apart, installing the new manifold with 5 gate valves, moving the 2 GFO and carbon reactors to beside the skimmer, Moving the UV horizontal above the reactors, and leaving the CaRx and effluent chamber in the same place. During that time we will move all of the controller modules under the stand (waterproof box??), and get all of the wiring out of sight. Also adding a 2" drain through the stand to the sump so we can tuck the discharge hoses and not have to run much vinyl tubing.

Tossing around the idea of updating to the new AI Vega fixtures :gringringrin:

As for growth of corals... I am extremely impressed! The lights are still only at 60%W 65% blue, and still on the ramp up. I will post pics when I tear the thing apart and make some upgrades.

Things seem to be doing well... need to turn up the LEDs as they are only at 80%, and get ready to bring the calcium reactor online. Weekly water changes of 50 gals have been enough to keep things in check so far.
