What did you do to your tank today

This will be a great thread that we can keep going. That way we can keep up with the small day to day tinkering of our members.

Added 1/2 teaspoon of Reef Builder. Ph is good (8.2) but my Alk is low at 3.2. By Seachem's directions I could have added double that based on tank water volume but I try and do everything slow. Especially if it's not an emergency and an alkalinty of 3.2 doesn't constitute an emergency, right?

Well so far this morning I tweeked my skimmer (it's new and still breaking in) and I picked up frags that the snails knocked down, and wiped little fingerprints from my 2 yr old off of the glass:-) I'll be doing more later I'm sure..

Great thread. Haven't done anything today, but yesterday I moved one of my K1's from the side to the back of the glass. They are now both pointing to the front of the glass for flow from different sides. Hoping that creates better overall flow.

Plus the power head was right over my frogspawn. It instantly grew out after I moved it.

Unfortunately now 2 of the my finger leathers arms are under the powerhead and they aren't coming out as much. Ugh?

I'm trying to keep my hands out of the tank. I'm always messing with it and pissing the zoas and baby plate off.

Well, I'm going to cheat and talk about last night ('cause I'm still within the 24 hour definition of "day"). Last night I removed about 30# of live rock from a clorox bath, rinsed it in the sink and am now soaking it in plain water. Today I'll rinse it again and begin drying it out. It had algae, polyps, slime, sponges, etc., all over it from being left unattended and neglected for too long. I'll re-cure it and put it back in my tank over the next few weeks.

be sure to do a Prime/water bath to insure that all the bleach is gone and had been neutralized.

Well I picked up the 2 frags the darn snails knocked down, moved some of the little leather babies to their designated pile of rubble, and fed everyone. The serpent star got his special treat (a piece of krill), and managed to defend himself from the blood shrimp who always tries to steal his food.

Anyone want a little leather? (No one with montipora; I'm quarantining against the nudis I had last month.)

I was hoping to say nothing, but I came home at lunch to find my skimmer pump quit working. Pretty certain I'll be doing something when I get home now.

I looked at my tank last night after lights were out as usual. This morning adjusted my light timer b/c i didn't do it last night for daylight savings... plan on doing a water change either today or sometime after I get my new stand and tank up and running. to make the cycle shorter and ready for the clowns and corals for it. and finish building my new stand for the zoa only tank... that is it for me.

Nada so far. Might mag float the glass later if I can..

Quick question.. Does anyone know if they make a 36" scraper? I keep finding the 24" ones.. That's not long enough though..
