    Nah... She paid me gas money bought a couple frags from me and then gave me quite a few of the frags I cut as well as a mini carpet nem. Well worth the trip IMO.

    I have taken photos, but poor cell phone camera quality leaves me wishing for better and true colors! (and the orange filter is worse yet!!) Things are opening up well today. I am so pleased. My corals all look smaller, but they will come back in more appropriate places and the pesty stuff is no longer running over everything. Doug was a God send and thanks to him, If/When it needs doing again, I will be brave enough to do it myself! Need to work on the water flow, despite turning the gyro down, my xenia still can't pulse. Even the back corner has too much movement! (and I was worried about dead spots!!). So, guys, what should I look for at the swap? I would like another Duncan. Am I ready for brain coral? Acan or Lobo? Stylo? An anenome for my clowns and what kind? The dark maroon clown has been thinking about using the hammer. Oh, and I had the bright idea to put some mushrooms and corals on the back, so got magnet plugs. The magnet is not strong enough for my overflow. Ideas? I am in love with my new cloves. Havent' gotten a real good look at the suran yet. And, like the Sunny D MUCHbetter than i thought I would from photos. Tank Redo from East.jpg Tank Redo from Front.jpg tank redo from West.jpg So, here is the "new tank" from East, West, and front. Pretend it's prettier than the photos show...cuz it is!!!!!

    I like it, looks better, cleaner and definitely back on track. Watching everything grow back is all part of the fun. Congrats.

    It amazes me that Doug put more of my rock in than I've had in (took some out of the sump), yet it looks less crowded! Lots to be said for experience!

    It has been a month since Doug came and helped me with my tank. Things are growing WAY fast...almost fuller than before we cleaned out!! The only thing I haven't found are my red mushrooms. The acros that I purchased at the swap did not make it. But, everything else is doing GREAT! Unfortunately, I managed to put some deep scratches in the glass. No fix, so I guess I'll get used to them! I do enjoy my tank and it's inhabitants! Now, at least one more fish (the husband likes them best) and some more "cleaners"...such as snails. This is what help and support looks like! Now, to get better photos!! And, that bright color. Thank you to all that supported me in this...and Doug for doing so much!

    Bummed about the lost red shrooms... guessing they are under some of the rock work?? Ps. That ,mini carpet anemone is doing well and is very sticky :) Other frags I got from ya are doing good too.
