Lis..what parts are you still looking for, I have about a bazillion pcv connectore left from my last upgrade. Lmk before I actually return them to the store!

Looks great so far! Hope we can get the mesh cover done next weekend for you! When do you expect the light to be hung and what plan did you finally come up with to hang it..wood or metal?

Tank looks like its coming along nicely, but that plumbing looks complicated. Also why is the sump positioned like that?

That was the joint that dripped. I siliconed around the joint and it seems to have stopped the leaking - I know, not the best, but I did what i could. It isn't leaking anymore..

Tank changeover is going extremely well. I started moving my coral over to the new tank on Saturday, and I've been slowly moving a few pieces every day. I would like to do this process even more slowly, but quite honestly my electric is having a difficult time with the two tanks running simultaneously. That being said, everything is adjusting very well to the new light and new tank conditions. All coral is opening up beautifully. I haven't moved any fish yet - they'll probably go almost last. :) It's looking good .... I'll take photos when my leathers finally open up again. They're all pouting at me.

Tank switch is now 99% done! THe only thing still in my old tank are two peppermint shrimps. :) I think I made the switch with minimal casualties. I'm not sure my feather duster is going to make it. I busted one of my monti caps into about five smaller pieces, but the pieces seem to be fine and I'll just glue them all together. My birdsnest was originally really happy with the new light, but now it looks like it might be bleaching a bit. I haven't seen my yellow assessor since he went into the tank, but I have faith that he'll come out once he de-stresses a bit. The blenny and the wrasse immediately began swimming around happily - I'm sure Mr. Wrasse is especially glad to be able to stretch his fins a bit.

It's possible that I hate this stupid ESV sand. Hopefully after tonight it will have settled down. I added a bunch of flow today and little dunes are forming at the front of the tank. Still having issues with the dursos gurgling and with microbubbles.

It was sold as a Yuma - I agree, it looks a bit like a hairy shroom. But it was sold by Ronen who I would assume knows the difference. Aren't there a form of pacific yuma that look like hairy shrooms?
