Yesterday morning, after the lights had come on, I was feeding the tank to discover that my Green Slimer (Acropora yongei) was sloughing off tissue.

A 50g water change was done tonight. During the water change, I made it a point to use a pump to stir up all the detritus in the sump and cause the water to be murky in the refugium to keep it in suspension.

More locline to the rescue

Here is a picture of the 280g reef as of yesterday.

The new tank is maintaining well. Temperatures range between 79 and 81F from day to day. pH tends to run rather low, around 7.9 to 8.1 but I recently started dripping Kalkwasser to see if that will elevate the levels to 8.3.

Finger foods? Nope.

Tucker is getting along just fine with the other tangs in the 280g. He still has spots were he was injured, but he swims and eats and it is a good indication of full recovery.

Banished to my son's tank

Tonight I was feeding my son's tank, and the Golden Eel came up to look for food. So I got him some thawed squid. However, he seemed more interested in my fingers than the meaty food! Looks like I'll be able to hand feed this interesting creature provided I get some silversides instead.

Tucker jumped!

I woke up just in time today. My first job was to check the 280g and make sure the fish were swimming right side up. Current pH is 7.8 (but that could be 7.89 because the pH Controller doesn't show the number in hundredths).
