So my tank has been going pretty well. Almost too well. My Montipora has been putting on a measured growth weekly, gorgonians open and growing, even my goniopora has grown and attached to nearby rocks.
But I've always been unhappy with the tank.
Last week listening to Gary & Christine's Reef Threads podcast (which is a nice replacement to the Reef Addicts podcast since it is updated like.....NEVER! I'm looking at you Melev!)

The local Petco is having their $1/gal tank sale right now. And they have litterally stacks and stacks of 40 breeders. I don't have any tank plans right now, except to upgrade my 55 to a 75 eventually. But those 40's are a nice size and shape for a nano project. Hmmmm...
So yesterday I got my shipment of the new MP60 and the Apex wireless module. I needed to upgrade the firmware and the web pages from apex as I was behind one update. Those of you that have not updated recently may want to becase the new pages are live and look like the ones Curt had at MACNA 2012. Here is my status screen as an example:

Well couldn't overcome the hair algae issues from a second hand tank I bought so all live stock sold and tank stripped down. When removing all items the state of them was awful and all now cleaned up and like new.
Decided while tank stripped going to buy the Tunze 9002 upgrade and Media rack as they seem to improve the water clarity and flow etc.
Taken a while to do but worth it as know when complete will have a lovely tank again.
Algae! But only on one side because someone forgot to turn on ALL the lights one day.
Got in on a BRS group order this week and broke the proverbial bank. That sobbing you hear is my wallet crying in the corner.
