Over the past month or so, I have sold off some of the larger coral, and some larger mini colonies that were in the brow out tank. I also collected, and fragged some digitata's,and zoo's that were beginning to overtake a portion of egg crate on the floor in the tank.

While things were rather spatially open - I removed as much reef rubble and detritus as possible.

This week I'm doing some maintenance on my grow out tank. In lieu of random egg crate towers that had been holding various frags ( picture ) , I am going to combine with (1) egg crate platform that is 3'x3' leaving 1' clearance inside around all 4 sides of the tank for various power head positionings.

The big challenge will be moving all the frags that I have off of the towers, and then installing the new platform. It's not too hard, just a PIA.

I'll put up some pictures when done. Hopefully I'll get them up tomorrow.

all generally went well, other than me getting a bit sunburned while repositioning the frags on the new platforms

One small problem -- my red planet colony is too large for the perimeter space, so it looks as if I will be moving it to the display tank over the weekend. Once that is done, I'll put up some pics of everything..

I was able to get things straightened out in my grow out tank. I thought I was going to have some extra space on the rack, but it's already pretty full...
at least now it looks somewhat more organized. The platform is 3'x3' in a 4'x4' tank.

Thanks Pat..

I had to sell off a bunch of LG colonies over the summer in the grow out tank to allow for the re arrangement of the platform.
