    Rock Boogers

    For the pods and phyto, what did you use? When I first started the tank I just dumped a thing of tiger pods and a random tube of phyto in the tank. Not sure if either will sustain itself after one time. For the phosphorus / nitrate I have some aquavitro fuel I'll have to check that out to see if I can bring up the levels

    Rock Boogers

    Not sure if any of this is related, but I started the tank with man made rock /dry sand and everything that has gone into the tank has been dipped in peroxide other than an anemone. I'm almost thinking my lack of biodiversity may be to blame. Also have a low bio load ( 2 snowflakes and a firefish ) and have been dosing aminos ( ME Polyp Extender ). The snotty stuff came before the aminos though so I don't think that has any impact.

    Rock Boogers

    Anyone know what this stuff may be? Tank is still pretty new, so it may just be from cycling I just have never seen it before. Can't tell weather it's an algae or bacteria. It has no consistency and if you hit it with a powerhead or anything it just falls apart and gets picked up by the filter. It's only in areas of high light and takes about a week to slime up like this again if I blow it off the rock.

    Local Knowedge Needed QT Coral

    In my experience nothing beats Bayer for softies and sps and peroxide for zoas. I got coral rx for an anemone when I added it to the tank and tried it on some zoas and it did nothing, still had to dip them in peroxide

    Captive-Bred Mandarin Dragonets

    What does it eat when it is that small? Think it would go for some mini pellets? We were thinking or ordering one after our spring break trip.

    Captive-Bred Mandarin Dragonets

    That's pretty cool! If we were not planning on a vacation I would go for it. Totally going to check them out when we get back if available still. I have heard with other mandarins even if trained to eat frozen food you still have to keep up your pod population. Wonder of that is still the case here

    Indoor plumbing

    Thanks y'all! The insurance is cool so the recovery has not been bad. Just wanted to make sure to share the experience so I could hopefully prevent it for someone else. Like others mentioned, a quick check / replacement sure beats replacing house lol

    Indoor plumbing

    Well, here is my friendly reminder to learn from my mistakes. Don't cheap out on your plumbing. I hooked up a RO/ DI filter in my laundry room, I did a splitter in the fresh water line to my washer so I could also put the drain into the drain for the washer. Figured the best way to ensure I did not get copper in my lines was to use a cheap plastic Y valve. Well... that turned into the valve not digging the 15 degree weather while I was out of town in the upstairs of my house. That turned into a downstairs where I used a broom and an open door to drain the water. Then a downstairs with no ceilings, walls, or carpet and an excessive amount of very loud fans Please don't use cheap plumbing, and if you have please consider swapping it out.
