    I never knew how much stuff could live on a snail shell until I took this picture. I see pods, worms and possible a small tunicate.

    I haven't posted any updates for a couple months. Some of my acros are still looking rough, but the issue does not appear to be spreading and some of them have improved. Hopefully I am on my way back. Shortening my peak lighting schedule to 6 hours seemed to help, but I still think it is a bacterial thing. I also realized that I had somehow set my WAV pumps to Mirror instead of Inverse. So instead of a back and forth motion, the flow was meeting in the center and swirling around. I think it had been that way for months and I just didn't notice. I also increased nutrients. My phosphate usually measured between 0 and .02 and my nitrate was somewhere between 5 and 10. I overshot the mark and my phosphate is at .15 - .20 and nitrate is between 25 and 40. Everything seems happier but I am still trying to slowly get the phosphate down to .05 and nitrate below 20. My fingers are crossed that I am finally out of this four month long mess. Here is my favia collection. They are my favorite SPS and definitely loving the increased nutrients.

    Here is a mix of some other corals.

    ARC Fireworks does not have the red polyps yet but it is slowly growing.

    Bubblebath Unicorn is also still coloring up but starting to grow a little faster.

    Here is an acan that was a one polyp frag from Jason Fox back in November.

    This goni took forever to get happy in a high flow, high light tank, but it is doing pretty well now.
