    Hey, i just wanted to say thank you and to ask , in your reply to my leather frag post you said "you never decapitated one that large" so have you cut the whole head off of smaller ones? And did they heal alright? I have had smaller ones in the past that i had fragged the whole thing but i cut it into quarters and left a part of the base with each piece of cap. Thanks for your help....

Fishie additions

by Phurst on 03-15-2010 at 05:09 PM
I picked up 4 chromis and a flame angel from a fellow reefer who was breaking down his tank. The flame is of course a bit risky as far as possibly nipping at corals, but the previous owner had no problems, so we;ll see. I've also done the chromis song and dance twice before, and had the numbers dwindle to 1, but i know plenty of people have had success. including the one i already had, that's 5 in the tank now. they all hang out together, but we'll see how they do long term...

Lighting upgrade

by Phurst on 02-18-2010 at 04:57 PM
So, I finally got around to upgrading my lights from 250s to 400s. With a 31" deep tank, there was no way around it. The tank looks MUCH better now IMO. I did photo acclimation over 5 days and everything seems just fine. Colors are shifting, for the better I hope. I've got some onl 10K bulbs on there until my 20ks come in hopefully today or tomorrow. I took some pics, but with the camera doing it's auto aperture dance, you can't really see a difference in the pics.

Phurst's 150 updates

by Phurst on 01-25-2010 at 11:53 AM
You can see my previous thread on my 150 here:

Couple of updates. First, I have begun 2 part dosing again. I top off with straight saturated kalk, but it appears it can no longer keep up with demand, so i dusted off the old peristaltic dual dosing pump and mixed up some 2 part last night. This is the lab grade pump I'm using.
