  1. Did you get one?? I'm going to make a Yoda, Vader, Picard, and Warf to start. Noah can have Vader. And I'm sure I'll have to make a Minecraft Steve at some point too. Is it cheating to use a 3D printer in a school dramarama project? Oh the possiblitlies! I'm so getting one now Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
  2. Oh my gosh people! Kudos to y'all! My schedule kinda goes like this: 5pm blues on: (to myself)"don't forget to feed your fish and stuff today" 9pm: "you still haven't feed the fish and stuff yet ..." 11pm lights out blues on: "darnit, you forgot!" Then I get up (if I've sat down for the day yet) and feed my fish and stuff. Saturday is similar with the water change. Saturday night : "oh my gosh, seriously? You forgot. Again." Christy, I believe you have inspired me to get back on my schedule! Thank you [emoji4] I will now proceed to follow and observe, like the creepy guy in the corner of a store that just watches...

  3. Sorry, no, but I want one... But not to make cool inventions like you. To make Star Wars AND Star Trek figurines so we can all finally get along Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
  4. Good finds! Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for all your wisdom and help on this matter! It helps a lot. I cleaned the algae off a few days ago and the damage isn't as bad as I originally thought, so yay! I bleached my setosa as well and I knew that was due to light increase but the algae on the other 2 threw me off. I'm pretty sure I lost my setosa but we'll see. I did leave my lights on all night on accidentally as well. I'm sure that was a big contributor too. Thanks again for helping Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
  6. I knew all that [emoji4] except the fact that was algae and not illness. I've been hand dosing for 9 months. I would think after that long I'd see some of this before. I actually have an auto doser I've never set up. It's going to have to wait though. At least for 5 more weeks.
  7. It's the lights. I upped the lights a while back. I've turned them down since. I started noticing where and which corals were bleaching. But here's my parameters anyway. My salinity is never this low though. I'm good about keeping it at .024. Like I said, it's been neglected a bit. Nitrates: 20-30 (I said they'd be high) Alk:8; Ca: 450; salinity:.021 Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
  8. As far as feeding I'm much more efficient. Not overfeeding anymore, for the most part. But it's been like that for weeks. I got an urchin and he cleaned my algae right up. I still have some on my back glass, but nothing like it it was before [emoji4] . After what you said I think it's lack of nutrients combined with too much light, if I understand you correctly. I already adjusted the lights, like I said, but I'd like to get a reading on them. I'll at least go the store tomorrow and get my water tested. Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
  9. I dose once a week to keep it at around 9. Not sure how low it drops between doses but it's never been a problem. I have a horrible time trying to do water tests at home so I have to go to the fish store, in Austin. I live out in the boonies of Georgetown so it can be hard to get there. Any who, I usually test after dosing and water change. On the occasions I've tested prior alk was never lower than 8 or so. I have an auto doser I've never set up because I don't know where to start and I can't get to the store everyday to test levels. Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
  10. Still no parameters, can't make it out today. I did increase the light but I noticed my superman monti was bleaching so i turned them down a week or two ago. The monti is recovered. I went 3 weeks without a water change because my nitrates are always so low. I'm trying to find the right system to keep them at 5-10. I keep trying to use my skimmer, Tim. I think I'm going to have to give in finally and take it out for good. Lol Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
  11. I knew y'all would want to know LOL. I did a water change and dosed yesterday. It has been slightly neglected though. I'm pretty sure alk is low and nitrates are high... so yeah. I'm going to the LFS to get accurate readings hopefully today. I'll post as soon as I know. Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
  12. I have uckie brown stuff on my birdsnest and chalice. The coral is dying where the brown stuff is. At first I thought it may be dinos but I fixed that problem. Not sure if it should be noted but they sit relatively close to each other. Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
  13. I'll be out of town as well I really wanted to help though. You'll update to let us know everything made it, right? I can babysit if you ever need a break too. Even if you just need to work around the house or catch up on sleep. I want another baby but that's not in the cards so I can always use a "baby fix" [emoji5] Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
  14. Does it expire? Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
  15. Yay Ty! Congrats to you and your wife! In addition to being the funnest frag, it will be the most expensive frag too! But absolutely worth every ounce of effort you invest in them. He will never cease to amaze Sent from my SM-J700T using Tapatalk
