    Sir patricks system-

    Tank set up-

    65 gallon breeder display
    40 gallon breeder sump/frag tank

    Equipment for display-

    6x39w tek t5ho fixture
    Vortec MP-10
    Koralia evolution 1050
    Offset left side mega flow overflow

    Equipment for sump-

    DIY PVC skimmer w/ odysea 500 pump
    Blue glow classic frag rack
    2x39w 10k GLO retro kit t5ho set up
    Par 38 20k spotlight
    Carbon reactor
    Quiet-one 1200 return pump
    Rio 800 pump for flow


    Still unsure as to placement of this grow out pack.....keep it on the frag rack in the sump? Create a zoa garden on a rock w/ all the peices? Or- go for the win, place them in the display, and place according to type/needs of each polyp???? Still not sure what I will do.....they are all on the frag rack in my sump for now.


    To start, I am guessing- things are hard to count still-

    Better than Kedds Reds (3 polyps)
    Purple Deaths (3 polyps)
    Devils Armor (2 polyps)
    Eye of Rah (4 polyps)
    Gobstoper Play (1 polyps) <--this was the mystery frag
    Green Bay Packers (5 polyps)
    Lunar Eclipse (2 polyps)
    Cherry Corals SkyHigh's zoos (3 polyps)


    Heres my first pic!

    One day soon, I will write up a break down on the parts, as far as I can guess, and post them up.

    Well....not the greatest update today......

    I have some algea issues in my sump. Plugs are growing algea pretty well. Kinda hard to get a good count. Still trying to find the perfect rock to start a zoa garden with these peices. I will be transfering them as soon as i find the perfect rock, and they will be added to my display tank.


    Because of the algea, i cant get a good count.....

    Had to move and clean up my frag plugs....got some really dark green snot algea growin like mad in my sump. It tried to overtake my frags!!!

    Cleaned them up a bit, but got them all out of order. No polyp count this time. they are mostly closed, and I cant tell 100% which is which!

    I do have a pic though-

    The skyhigh polyps are very slow growers for me, I dont think I have a baby yet! I was able to salvage one polyp of the purple deaths, hopefully it decides to kick into gear now.
