    Default Post Storm Rebuild

    I am going to focus on the positive of this. The watermelon Chalice is doing well and one Picasso clown lived through the nightmare.

    Things that will be different:

    1. Tank backed up on a standby generator
    2. High power cost pumps going away
    3. Keeping Red Dragon as circ pump but will feed a small sea grass refugium too
    4. Two VOrtech MP40's for wave action on Bat back ups
    5. Three Tunze gen II will stay
    6. MH totally replaced with CREE LED systems
    7. Finishing lighting control panel w/ osram 10V signal Amplifier
    8. Denitrator is back on line now and will remain on line
    9. Continue dosing two part, mg, K+ but using bioptim for bacterial replacement


    Livestock

    1. More LPS corals included this time
    2. smaller fish such as wrasses and anthias
    3. more inverts like shrimp


    The aquascaping is getting a new look too.

    Sure thing Kozy. I am going to be revamping a lot of things back there. The electrician will be here Friday to get the ball rolling on the generator.

    I have one more of Novus two that I want to do to buff out a few mroe scratches and I am hanging the second light rail either tonight or tommorow. My shelf rock will arrive Friday and I got my 3/4 inch nylon rod and hex nuts today along with the Vortech and BB that would have been nice to have last week. Sand should arrive on Monday. I am actually plugging along. I miss hte tank a lot already.

    Mike Im so sorry that you had to go through all this, it is so hard to believe that an entire system could be wiped out so quickly.
