    So just flooded the tank with ro.....
    Salinity got down to 1.015. Immediately transferred the shrimp to a different tank and starting draining the water. Had some fresh saltwater for a water change so got that done. Corals aren’t to closed up and the clownfish seems fine. Last I checked I hve salinity back up to 1.020 and slowly working to 1.025/6. Started the ro to top off and wife said she wanted chipotle so off I went. No more topping off with direct ro. From now it’ll be by hand.

    Shrimp is making small movements here and there :/ feed the guy by hand everyday and he may be a shrimp but I really liked him and hope he pulls thru.

    As of this morning clownfish and all coral are fine. Didn’t look for the shrimp in his new home but he was moving around last night.

    I’ve mainly just been letting the tank coast. Only done a few water changes not near as many as I should be doing but getting back on top. I lost the short polyp torch and birdsnest. Zoas and one tiny trumpet head are doing fine though. Worst thing that’s happened is the garage was heating up cussing both tanks to overheat so I opened the garage door a little and a window on the opposite side. Came downstairs to a car in the garage and the clownfish morning where to be found... Theres a reason I don’t like them and another one added to it. I hand fed that fish everyday, not sure how the cat managed it but never found a body so I’m assuming it ate it. Fuge is doing well and with the more frequent water changes I’m hoping for things to really start growing.

    Updated the first post with some corals that were added! I’m going to be doing some large cleaning, add another fish and some coral to get this tank really shining.

    71EA4CD7-2C14-4887-A4E2-E7F48B8E746A.jpeg Still working on the tank. Got a frag from mike of utter chaos. Was a single polyp but by the time I picked it up it’s got multiple heads and as you can see got a new clownfish. Need to update totals.
