Do you quarantine fish? What's your procedure, Eric?

 

Well I always say Im going to QT when I setup a new tank but for one reason or another I never do. I just try to buy fish from sources that are known to have healthy fish and so far it has turned out ok. 

 

For frags, I just dip them in either Bayer or Revive & Coral RX but thats about it. I just visually inspect everything. 

 

I think that if you are going to QT fish and don't QT everything else you put in the tank you are just wasting time so for that reason I just take the risk. With that said I if I buy a fish thats shy and not wanting to eat I put the I'm a separate tank to get them eating before I put them in the big tank. This is very rare since I always try to buy fish that are eating but thats about it.

Yeah that was one of the others we were considering before we when with the C-quest Wyoming Whites. 

 

My favorites are Picassos but decided to go with these this time.

Yeah the helmet Picasso's are my favorites I've been looking to get ahold of a adult pair of picassos to be a breeding pair for me.  

 

Doni's Snowcassos are beautiful but very expensive and hard to find now that she no longer breeds them.

No much of an update but I did get my float switch holder today and it was a breeze to installed. This skimmer has yet to overflow but I rather be safe than sorry. Don't want a mess in the sump lol.

Thank you Christian!!

 

Things have been moving slowly with the tank. Had a brown algae outbreak from getting to happy with Reed Roids :) *totally my fault* I did a 3 day blackout plus GFO and 90% of its gone now, still a few patches here and there but nothing major. 
 
I ordered a Building An Obsession camera tube so I decided to get some top down shots of some of the nicer frags. Colors are starting to come back now, they did get a bit dull from the 3 day blackout.
 
All pictures taken under 100% Royal Blues!

Lawdy, those LED blues really makes those corals shine! Out of curiosity, what are you current parameters for your tank?

The flame angel is reef safe ?

With caution, whatever that means hahaha. 

 

I had one in the past and never bothered my corals so I figured I'd get another one and see. First bite and he's out though.

Well water changes ain't doing it anymore so the GHL doser 2.1 had to go online a few weeks ago. Currently dosing 16ml a day of both Part A & B. Thanks to these slim gallon jugs from BRS I still have some room left on the right side of the stand.
