Here's a very surprising coral recently posted by Walt Smith Int'l Fiji. Too good to be true, right?
Here's the link to the video on Facebook (turn your speakers down): https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...type=2&theater
And a bunch of images. It came out of the ocean like this; it's not some man-made merging of two colors. Neat find.
I spotted this on Facebook today. Image by Reefkoi. Look at the size of the polyps that opened up on this Chalice coral. I read that it's from Jason Fox's collection.
The frag tank holds roughly 10g of saltwater, and the corals in there are growing bigger fighting for space. I've considered building a new one to replace this one once the 400g gets here. I don't know the date unfortunately.
Yesterday as I was looking at the tank, I noticed that one end was floating - which it never does. The first thing I did was put some shims under the end to support the corners of the tank.
Let's see your reefs! Take your pictures, resize them for web sharing, and post it in the reply field. You'll need to host it somewhere like Photobucket to share it in your reply.
Here's the 215g, which is over a year old now.
It's been an interesting week for the reef.
Testing alkalinity, I noticed that it was getting a little low, probably around 7 dKH rather than the normal 8 dKH. To raise it up slightly, I adjusted the pH controller from the 6.5 setting to 6.2 instead. The next day, I checked on the calcium reactor to find that nothing was coming out. Annoyed, I opened up the needle valve a quarter twist and flow resumed. The following day I checked on it again, and again no effluent.
