Overgrown Frag Rack


I think it’s funny that I let my frag rack get this overgrown, it’s more like a coral rack now.  I just recently broke the main stalk of this acropora off as the weight was causing the rack to almost fall off. The rack’s magnets aren’t quite strong enough to support a “Coral Rack.” Remember to not let your frags grown into corals on the rack!

Orange Guttatus Birdsnest Coral Die Off


The other day I noticed my ORP levels had jumped up 30 points, which is kind of unusual, so I began investigating.  The only thing that I could find was that my Orange Guttatus Birdsnest Coral (Seriatopora guttatus) frag was turning white.  My tank levels tested normal so I took the coral out of the tank. It’s a bummer to lose a coral but I would rather get it out before it caused further problems.

A quick underwater tour of the right side of our reef tank.  Mostly montipora caps, acros and birdsnest.

Coral Fragging


The EcoTech Marine Facebook crew sent me a small bottle of their coral glue after winning a contest. The new EcoTech Coral glue (gel) makes fragging kind of fun actually as it cures extremely fast! I have to say that I really like it, better than my other fragging glue (BSI IC-GEL).

My friend Kelan and I did a little coral fragging this evening. I hope the montipora caps grow in a neat pattern!
