Today I made some calls to see if I could locate a hobbyist-friendly supplier of Weld-On #4, since Tapplastics.com has decided to no longer carry the product. I found a vendor in Indiana that is willing to ship anywhere in the U.S. and have added that information to the Tools page on my site.

Woohoo - Blogger fixed their software and I can make entries more easily again. Yes!
Today I tested the water in the tank. It had been weeks and I didn't really want to find out any bad news, if you know what I mean. To my surprise, everything is great!
Salinity - 1.027sg
Temp - 80.8F
pH - 8.21
Alk - 9.6 dKH
Cal - 450
Mg - 1360
Nitrate - 5ppm
Phosphate - .03ppm
ORP - 297 (but I think that is a false reading)

Yesterday I took over 40 new images from my tank. I posted these in my thread on Reef Central. You do have to be signed in to view them, but that is free.

I bought a new coral today. Since my camera was at home, I thought I'd try to take the picture with my Razor phone. ;)
It is actually a bubble coral, but only about 2" across. It looks more like a Ricordia. When I saw it, I thought the colors and the tiny bubbles were rather unique, and wondered it it was a cross between a Fox Coral and a Bubble.

Episode 17 is available from Reefcast.com - this show is the Flower Gardens presentation given during the Saturday night Gala at MACNA XVIII. The Flower Gardens is the closest natural reef to Texas in the Gulf Coast. The video and slideshow was amazing; the audio is the next best thing.

FYI, Reefcast Episode #13 is available!
I'm heading to MACNA on Thursday, and Evan is riding shotgun. We're taking all the goodies for our Reefcast booth in the vendor's hall. While I'm away, I've recruited some local help to check on the tank once a day.

New page for the site: AEFW (Acropora Eating Flatworms)
This is a work in progress, where I'll document what is working and what should help get rid of this infestation that devour Acropora sp.
