Just got back from another long trip. Wife has been taking care of the tank. The first thing in my tank to catch my eye was the coraline. Starting to see alot of green coraline growth. Lost alot of purple and the pink coraline. The red coraline is turning nice and dark really looks good. Had 01 blue hermit crab died today(smallest one) . Still cant get my ph above 8.0 going to buy some buffer to increase it. Started feeding the clown fish twice a day. My refrigum not doing to hot my cheato is a little smaller than a golfball have a feeling its my ph killing it.

I just got back from my trip to find that the wife forgot to check salinity and record water temp. I need to figure out a way to remind her to do those things. I think I might try writting out the required tests for her to make it easier. I guess I will see if that works as I have another trip soon.
