Introduction

Large clean up job with the acrylic tank and base, but doable. As for the plumbing (Sump, Pump, Protein Skimmer, ect...). I have not yet decided if I am going to clean it and use it or just buy new. It is a bit older that what I thought. As a result, I may extend out my "get wet date" for the tank. After all I want to do it once and do it right.

Maintenance

I am buying this Aquarium next week. As you can see it needs some TLC.

- Drain and Move the Aquarium
- Move Livestock to their new LFS home
- Clean Light
- Clean Tank inside and Outside (Plus Overflow)
- Use Acrylic Repair Kit and Fix Minor Scratches
- Clean Woodwork on Cabinet
- Clean and Evaluate Sump and other Equipment

On average you perform a 4.9% water change every 12 days.

0% total water change in May.

Fishlips (Blond Naso) is looking better. Rita has indicated that Dorie (Blue Hippo) is Hiding alot (next to where our cleaner shrimp has setup shop).

I took Pics and video of Dorie Eatin
Lost my other Conch - Probably because of the Water Level Fallen Valve on the PS. Salinity was real low as a result.
Arrrgh. Water Change. Turn the Pump back on. Bubbles in the Tank. Why?

Chamber that contains Pump - Low water Level.
Not a lot of Skimate in the Skimmer.

It took 2 Da
Torch is looking better. Polyps are starting to extend again. Rita noticed the heads may be getting read to split. Maybe I need a pic and go talk to Rob.
