  1. Cool! It's a clam, great filter feeders. That species is relatively common on maricultured live rock. from Florida or the Caribbean.
  2. All my systems will go a week without needing any attention. I have autofeeders and either ATOs or large sumps that will handle at least a weeks worth of evaporation. A couple of my systems go 2-3 weeks without needing any attention like this one in my thread here: https://www.austinreefclub.com/topic/40758-icp-test-results-90-gallon-mixed-reef-w-tapwater/
  3. Well, retiring to Portugal sounds pretty awesome! 👍
  4. Your system is looking good! Sorry to hear you have to tear it down!
  5. There are butterfly fish that might eat it but they are not really good choices for an aquarium. Here's a video I posted in the video section on using stainless steel straws to remove unwanted algae and polyps that should be usefull for you. Just an FYI but while cryptic sponges are very beneficial in recycling the labile DOC in a system research also shows some sponges work with algae to create feedback loops that are detrimental for corals so removing any nuisance algae also would be beneficial.

  7. For those brave enough to catch them Blue Dragons have been showing up on Padre Island. https://www.ksat.com/news/texas/2020/05/08/beautiful-but-dangerous-blue-dragons-discovered-on-texas-beach-are-rare-find/?outputType=amp&fbclid=IwAR0JBzC04QxC4Et7ciMUyWNlFiSdSAM2skFDAaTAzAJ9xpef4o2Ki-tDFA8
  8. Looks great! How about some top down shots?
  9. Tank is looking much, much better!
  10. It's good to see you got Regal Tangs of different sizes (ages) and 561 gallons may be big enough for three but you should still be ready to rehome one or two in the future as they settle in. 😄

    Looking good! Nice seeing a bright white interior! Good to hear you're working too!
  12. I'm glad to hear things are coming back!!!
  13. Kinda depends. First of all you should be aware there are aging processes in corals that may show as changes in coloration. (This paper on aging in corals is fascinating but it is a bit thick: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/brv.12391) An example below is of a Povona cactus colony in one of my tanks. The change to brown is evident in the older polyps (lighting varies from ~150 - 175 PAR across the whole colony). Light availability is also a very common factor in changes in coloration of the lower parts of colonies, once you've added your new lights I'd expect to see some improvemnet in a few weeks but if you don't see any after a couple months it's probably not going to happen. And flow may be a factor also. Growth of a colony plays a big factor in both of these variables.
