  1. Thank you @wangspeed and @Origami for your input. I'll investigate if a bubble (or sediment) is trapped at the U bend at the bottom. Otherwise, it looks like I'll run double pump from the sump. Happy Holidays!
  2. Yes, sorry. The center pink overflow going to the frag tank (small tank on left) is the issue. Very basic drawing but elevations are pretty accurate. The tanks been in this configuration for about 9 months, but this only started like 2 months ago. Could be a bubble in the elbow. Should I have done 45s instead of 90? Any recommendations to remove the bubble? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hi all, I'm having an issue with slow flow into my frag tank. Hopefully the picture shows up clear enough. I'm draining one side of the display (durso setup) into the frag tank, with a shadow overflow from the frag back to the sump. I'm having slow flow from the durso so much, that the water level in that side of the overflow is the same level as my display. Even if I turn off the return pump, there's barely any flow to drain. I would think that gravity drain should be quicker than ~1gph. Yes, it's that slow. The other overflow (direct drain to sump) is working fine. My first step to remedy was to change the air line in case of any blockage, as it's been submerged in water for a while. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I thought about changing the setup again to have two return pumps in the sump, but I'm looking to avoid that if possible. Thanks!
  4. My lights are off and I tricked it out, so nothing showing, but I ended with 3. There’s a very small one past the two large polyps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. My monthly update. Moved it in the tank, growing much better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. It does! Yea it's now in the middle of the tank, still just as stretched for 3 days. Taking it nice and slow, gotta keep this thing! I can't be the first to lose :P the second is fine, but not the first! Maybe telegraham will lose first Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. One is the loneliest number. And it's stretching like crazy. Any suggestions? Been a while since I've had zoas. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Same picture, attempt at making true colors. Still going seemingly strong, despite some challenges. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Great point! If that's the case, I wouldn't win, even if it grew. I might not be able to take monthly pics if I couldn't find it! I actually found it since my lights were in actinic and there was a fluorescence floating around the sandbed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. It's ok. Don't worry. I claim sabotage last night by telegraham as the glue didn't hold I had to fish for it and glue it back on the plug. It started opening back up, so now we all have one polyp. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My tank is a 120 with now 4 kessil 360we controlled by apex. It's about 2 years old, but I finally got it stable since I just added the fourth light 2 months ago. I've been slow and steady, hopefully getting more corals now that I'm stable. I ATO with mrs wages kalkwasser, and occasionally dose NOPOX. I'm trying to reduce that though and just go water changes every 7-10 days. I feed frozen mysis daily, a chocolate chip star every 2 weeks (for the harlequin I got from telegraham), and nori maybe every two weeks. Also, I coral feed with reefroids once a week. Are we putting water parameters in this post? Nitrate: 5 Phosphate: 0.07 Alk: 8.5-9 Calcium: 450 Mag: 1320 Ph: 8.1-8.3 Flow: 5000 gph using two wav pumps (gonna find a dead spot for this zoa) Lighting: max intensity is 28% for 1 hour. Still rising slowly but now getting growth. Willing to learn to improve. I designed this to be SPS tank, but I'm still learning that trade. LPS I'm a pro. Can't kill that stuff.

  12. +1 your idea for 2 threads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Will we have a private thread to post all info/pics? Or doing it through this thread? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I'm in! Telegraham will spot me as I can't make the meeting Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
