Squishie's 90g Saltwater Tank

RSS

-I got my mesh so I have begun working on the lids. I zip tied the mesh to 1 of the lids and although it doesn’t look very pretty I am pretty confident it will work just fine. I will need to figure out what to weigh down the 2 smaller lids with so in case a fish tries to jump they don’t hit the lid and leave since the egg crate is so light. I need to re-do one of the large lids, and still have another large lid to cut out. But it is getting there!! Kind of funny I will probably get these lids done as soon as I have no corals to benefit from the extra light -.-  Ah well.
-The re-build is still at a stand still as I figure out where to keep the fish and inverts I am saving. I may end up having to buy a set up and set it up myself and maintain that while I do the re-build. The price for renting a system is just ….way too much. So it is either have someone else hold my critters or buy a set up as mentioned above.
-I am thinking about buying the Apex sooner than later so I can start fidgeting with it and figuring it out. It is a bit baffling spending so much on a controller, but the apex gets such good reviews and has a huge customer base.

Some recent photos

-20% water change done
-Spent forever prying the ricordeas off the fake reef. They are PISSED and I don’t blame them. I am going to give them to the guy for free.
-It looks like I might not be setting up a temp tank but having a local place hold everyone for me while I break everything down and re-do it.

Yesterday the octospawn left. Today the scoly, 2 rhodactis mushrooms, yellow goniopora (and 1 free coral) left! All that is left that is not pending is the kenya tree, hammer coral, tyree leather and alveopora.

I have the mesh coming for the new lids. I have the egg crate, just need to cut it all up.

I am not sure why my fish seem to work so hard on making me mad. Like when I am nice and give Van Gogh some nori and he managed to rip the whole piece off and it gets stuck to a powerhead. My fish want to be fish shamed, want.

for-science-sake:

The Sea Angel (Gymnosomata) Is a group of sea slug that grow no larger than 5cm. These obscure little creatures are found in a wide range of habitats from polar to tropical regions of the sea. 

Both clowns have been swimming away from the anemones more, especially since the galaxea went yesterday. It’s as if they are wondering where the corals are going. Can’t say I blame them! Hopefully they will be happy with everything once finished.

I have 2 more potential customers. One who want the frogspawn and ricordeas and another who wants the octospawn. If those go I will then only have the rhodactis shrooms, toadstool, kenya tree, goniopora, alveopora and hammer.
