    Default Frag Grow Out

    Main Tank

    90 gallon AGA to 15 gallon Marineland sump
    2 250 MH
    4 65 PC
    2 Korilia 3's

    Frag Tank

    60x16x10 acrylic to 55 gallon tall converted to baffled sump
    1 175 MH
    2 50 T5
    1 50 watt heater

    We haven't decided which frags are going in which tank yet. Best of luck to everyone who is trying for the saw, even without the prize the frag pack is worth the money>

    Changed 5 gallons of water in both main tank and frag system. salinity in main tank was 1.025, frag was 1.026. water used for change was 1.025. the zoas are all open under the t5s, the colors are not all that prominent though. added a teaspoon of fuel supplement with water change. new filter floss in overflow on frag system.

    Changed 5 gallons of water in both systems yesterday. Had to cut away 2 green bay packer polyps due to the fact that they were starting to melt down, rest of colony looks good and polyps are open. Had a friend come over Sunday to try and take some good pics to post. There is considerable new polyp growth on just about every frag (at least 1 or 2 new polyps some with mouth some not yet).

    Wow - new growth already? This is gonna be tough.
    I collect PEs, and I'm always looking to trade for ones I don't have yet.
