    as the title says ... dont you just hate Murphy????

    so after doing a wonderful job in my tank,yesterday i sold my filefish to @HOT SAUCE ,he collected in the morning ... so last night while relaxing and checking stuff in the tank ,something caught my eye... an aiptasia peeping out from between some button polyps!!!!! :m79: its like it knew the filefish is not there anymore... thanks Murphy!

    has Murphy been part of your reefing experience too??? tell us about it ...

    Lost the collection cup for my nano skimmer, couldn't find a spare one or second hand one anywhere, so bought an entire second hand skimmer just for the cup, about a week later I found the cup, what a waste of money. :(

    going to bed one evening, checked the skimmer cup was just above 1/4, told myself I'd clean it out in the morning, next morning the missus asks "what's that horrible smell"? Needless to say, something happened overnight that made it over skim just enough to let out some of the gunk..... Damn you Murphy!!!
