RODI water testing 1ppm

New year, new goals... I just hard plumbed my drain line for the first time ever. Now 50% of the water goes in to my refugium and 50% into the skimmer section. ??

Just gave the green zoanthid a 5 minute bath in a 4:1 3% hydrogen peroxide bath... Hopefully they turn out OK. The polyps look white...

Green hair algae causing my green zoanthids to close up. Going to do a hydrogen peroxide dip to clear it up.

Happy birthday to me! Just ordered the Aqua FX Barracuda RO/DI system and it should arrive on Monday (my birthday). So excited to finally have easy access to pure water. No more lugging buckets from my LFS...

With winter coming, temperature seems to be dropping in the tank. Will most likely have to upgrade to a more powerful heater!

Tank is drilled, plumbed, and running smoothly with overflow box and sump. With the additional weight of the water in the sump we decided to move the tank to the first floor where it's less of a hazard. The brown stand looks kind of tacky so we are going to paint it with white chalk paint which will look really nice I think.

Added a green star polyp. Having a pretty bad diatom outbreak so investigating adding a CUC.
Added the rest of the rock so now I have just under 29lbs total of rock! Still letting the tank cycle with the addition of a few blue and red hermit crabs.
Tanked moved to first floor due to concerns of so much weight and especially the sump on the second floor. Will be also painting the tank white!
