    AquaFX Tank Update

    Time for an update. Our nitrates and phosphates are at 0 finally. We're currently working on getting rid of the hair algae. This will probably take some time. However, since the last post we have changed the light bulbs, our fish have returned from the LFS. They are doing much better, and eating now.

    Currently in the tank we have 3 pajama cardinals, 1 algae blenny, 1 hippo tang, 1 naso tang, 1 tamine tang, 4 clown fish, a sea hare, a flying sea hare, and a horse shoe crab.

    This morning our flying sea hare started laying eggs:

    I think the white balance on the camera needs to be set, but they look good.
    Good Luck,

    looking great.. I'll have to stop by n look. I'm sure its magnificent in person.
    Four individual systems Right now.
    Modified Red sea 250 with attached 20 gal frag system XR15 pro light on FRAG tank, combo t5 reef bright led on main tank, now @100 gal total mostly sps tank, auto WC, Custom life reef filtration system Fuge and skimmer. KALK ATO chiller mp10's.
    30gal red sea 130d lps/softies/anemone tank, kalk ato, reef bright led strip.
    40 quarantine set up.
    500 total gallon marineland 300 DD main system 18 months old now and stabilized. T5 VHO lights/ BLUE led strip, Fully custom built LIFE REEF sump and FUGE, AWESOME 60" tall skimmer, and 1000+ gallon rated custom Ca reactor, attached SPS frag system and LPS frag system.
    I am expanding into this one ATM bit by bit,

    Still lots to learn about the hobby but I have amassed a great collection of real beauties and a FRAG saw will be in my future I think. I have broken past the stage of keeping things alive and now there actually growing out. Which is a big hurdle for many beginners I must admit. Good information and advise is hard to get sometimes and the club has done wonders with respect to quality advise and help in the hobby.

    THANKS Orlando Reef Educators Organization!!!!
