    Bummer for sure. Other than the crash...I hope all is well. Dont forget about us when you get it going again. Even if you dont get it going anytime soon, dont be a stranger.

    The crash and burn is so disheartening.

    pest anemone invation

    the good:
    clown survived
    2 pepermint shrimp slowly starting to attack the pest anemonies
    my radioactive zoas are slowly opening up bout 4 eyes survived out of 40
    another coral that i cant remember the name of
    and my conch an a few hermits

    so its been about 3 weeks since the recovery process began, did a large water change the other day after several smaller water changes and everything seems to be remaining stable, the zoas in the tank and the other coral are opening up very nicely,

    things you learn along the way secure all drain hoses lol spilled a good 10 gallons of tank water during the water change lol

    il up load some pics soon as i remember my photo bucket pasword, dont have one of the total crash was too bumed to think about taking any but have one shortly into clean up and one recent, Rostr thanks for the offer bud but im on the eastern end of pa in stroudsburg just a couple hr drive down 80 haha

    Kalk can kill them but you have to make sure you get the whole aiptasia or they will regrow from the leftover parts. I have always had problems with them retreating into their holes as soon as a get a syringe full of Kalk paste near them. If you get peppermints that will eat them they are great for eating up small aiptasia.
