Looks good, get some siporax or marine pure to compensate for the lack of live rock...just a thought.

Thanks for the good thought big guy. If I ever get any Nitrates I'll consider it.
Currently Salifert tells me 0
Let's not forget that I don't have anywhere near the # of fishies you do

Crappy update ...

Bought some Lyretail Anthias and a Coral Beauty.
Put them through 4 weeks of observational QT and missed Brook
Put them in the DT and started losing the lyretails. Then the main fish started getting sick. Then we lost our fave fish Bennie the starry blennie.

Put all the remaining fish in the 36g bow and ran a round of Furan-2.
Then started Chloroquine Phosphate @ 80mg/g.
Lost both fairy wrasses.
Fish not eating.
A week later dropped the CP down to 40mg/g.
Fish eating again.
Lost the largest lyretail - again Brook - 1 left.

So, from 14 fish, we're down to 5.

Going to run the CP for a full 6 weeks, then flush it out and run them through whatever is needed next while the DT sits fallow 'till New Years (12 weeks).

I'll try to get the enthusiasm to post some coral pics some time soon ...

Built a feeder tube for the shrimps in the DT so I don't have to pollute it too much as I was getting some algae issues.

Sorry to hear Greg...you know me and my thoughts on quarantine....it kills more fish than by stressing them out and if you don't have a tank full of expensive wrasses and angels....

Sorry that happened Greg, quite disheartening that you took all the necessary precautions, yet still something managed to slip by, very unfortunate.

Hopefully the remaining livestock will pull through.

Just read your posts. That really sucks Greg to lose so many fish, especially when you are doing the right thing and quarantining. And I am wining about a bit of phosphates!!! Hope that you get your tank back on track.
