I was doing some weekly maintenance last night since my wife was at work and I had the house to myself. It's much easier to do some tank chores when no one is around to distract you. That way you don't miss anything or forget to do something important like turn the pumps back on.
Since I was finished and had my screen top off, I decided to take some pictures to share. My coral has really grown this year and you get much better perception from the top down.
Well with summer coming to an end, and fall is in the air, I decided to spend the afternoon cleaning out my skimmer, and refilling my calcium reactor. To do this I have to take them offline and remove them from the sump area. This makes it very easy to do some much needed cleaning, and vacuuming up all the dust,salt creep, and misc stuff when the equipment is out. The front of my cabinet comes off so it makes it very easy to remove the equipment.
