    So I have plumbed the fragtank to my cube.
    Purchased a calcium rx, will setup in the next few days.
    There are some browned out mille and acro frags inside.
    Will post pics once they have coloured up abit.

    Dastaco would have been my first choice.
    Settled for reef octo.

    I have not been updating for some time, heres why.
    Been battling bryopsis for the second time on a zeovit system.
    This time tried the flucanazole 200mg caps for 21 days but could not stop it.
    My only theory is a strong bryopsis strain if it even exists lol.
    Lost most pieces and decided to treat the rock.

    First cube in 2011, running zeovit, bryopsis took over, had to shut.

    Removed liverock, funny thing, this scape was started with liverock I acid dipped.

    Hey not good to hear man - what reason you think for the coral all going south, too long low PH or something differant?
