On 11/25/16, I was near CTE Aquatics and decided to stop in. I ended up buying a neon goby for my 6 gallon nano reef (and three wood shrimp for my 50 gallon freshwater tank).


On 11/26/16, the salinities were 1.025, 1.025, and 1.025 for the 12 and 6 gallon tanks and the make-up water. I lifted up the now detached glob of green star polyps on the left top of the 12 gallon nano reef and moved them towards the wall to try to get them off of my poor brain coral. They keep stinging the brain coral which has started to bleach on one side.

I tended to the tanks on Sunday morning instead of Saturday afternoon. This was because something happened that had never happened since I started with saltwater tanks in 2008, almost nine years ago. While the 3.5 gallons of saltwater was up on the stir plate being stirred in a plastic cat litter bucket, somehow I maybe snagged one of the electric cords going to the stir plate, aerator, or heater, and the entire bucket came down, flooding the laundry room from one end to the other. It took me half an hour to mop it all up and try to stop water damage. I made a new batch of RO water late Saturday night so I could change the saltwater tanks on Sunday morning.


On 2/18/17, the salinities were 1.025, 1.025, and 1.025 for the 12 and 6 gallon tanks and the make-up water. The 12 gallon's thermometer read 76 degrees F, and the 6 gallon's thermometer read 78 degrees F.

On 5/6/17, the salinities were 1.025, 1.0255, and 1.025 for the 12 and 6 gallon tanks and the make-up water. I made the saltwater from 3.5 gallons of distilled water from the grocery store as our well was opened to replace the pump and tons of chlorine was dumped down there on 5/1/17. While the chlorine was down to below 1 ppm (from a high over 10 ppm) by 5/5/17, I did not want to damage the RO system or trap chlorine in there for later release. Things should be back to normal next week. The 12 gallon's thermometer read 82 degrees F, and the 6 gallon's thermometer read 78 degrees F.
