    Im back

    Last time I logged on here was in 2006:b13:

    I've had my tank up and running over the years. But have fallen out of the hobby some what. Well now that im at home more. I find myself drawn back to my tank. Just upgraded my Power compacts to T5s. :b16: much better!!

    Less heat and power. And more light.

    Thanks. Not really much to show off at moment. Mostly small frags. I lost mostly everything in my tank 2 summers ago. While away on vacation we had a power failure and it was just off to long. My tank sitter helped to save some of the coral. but my yellow tang and 2 clowns among others dident make it. :b1: I really took it hard! If the tank wasint an in wall I think that would have been it for me. But I have slowly rebuilt the tank. I will post some pics for sure.

    I had a bloom of valonia (bubble) algea that I think is under control now. I increased the flow, added a green emerald crab, 20% water change. Now every week I change at least 1 gallon of water. I reinstalled my seaclone skimmer also. Although I dont think its doing anything usefull but wasting power. lol. Looking at purchasing a new or used skimmer. I have my eye on a coralife 220. and a Nautilus TE.

    THinking maybe the 220 is a little big for my 50gallon tank.
