I finally got a skimmer , but the bloody thing leaks . so for now a repair is in the works if I can and if not I am back to square one.If I can I will be running it only 2xs a week till I can find a filter to fit all my probes and heaters in , then I will have 2 filters so it would be filter skimmer filter . I have started to save up for an RO/DI unit as well .... we shall see if we can get one now
As for updates I need to shoot some more photos at some point and time in the near future . I have also increased my lighting by one hour (first up time in nearly 5 weeks) since I am still batteling a bit of algea

Wow, I missed that additional set of pics. They are nice. For a 10 gallon tank it sure holds a lot of different items. Looks great. Where dd you get the skimmer from and what type is it? Is the seller going to make good on it?

What are you talking about? Ahhh, the advantages of being a mod.

Nice tank Sadielynn, the aqua c nano is a really good skimmer, you'll like it once you get it going.

Here are some updated shots of the 10 gallon
I have gotten a better grip on the dinos that we are battling . I have so far done 100% water change along with a 80% water change I will be continuing till I see no traces of it . I figure a couple more largish changes will dilute this down and I can back them down to 50% or a bit less then . Please ignore the green globs of hot glue we have heavy walker neighbors that knock stuff over if it doesnt fit tightly or isnt glued down . in due time it should cover in coraline

Since I seem to have a handle on the dinos in our tank .It took me nearly 2 years of trying to figure out what they were and another 6-12 months to kill them off . I think I finally have the upper hand on it .I lost some corals from it :cry: I figured that I could order some corals to try again . For some reason my lps and shrooms seem to be doing well but the zoas and the rics were the ones that took a sever beating on this battle . So I ordered some corals for the tank .I would have thought that with the set up I have I would have seen some growth of the zoas as well as the shrooms . All perameters are WNL and nothing seems out of place but here are the corals that I ordered there is a 3rd one but I forgot to get a pic of it .

The bubble shroom is sorta like a BTA and I hope that with time my clowns will host them the dumb things are hosting the power head and the macro algea that I have :


Since I have seen a dramatic cut in them since I started doing my increased changes, I decided this would be a last ditch effort to add any thing else to the tank . Except if I can find a cleaner shrimp . I would also like to get the purple pseudo chromis out and add something else but eh as long as he behaves I am golden
I will have to update pics of it I missed last weeks H20 change and when I did so this sunday past it really was not all that bad . mostly on the glass . I hope that we continue this progress .Now if I could get my sand white again

Here are the new corals from coralmorphologic I would hands down recommend them all the way there customer service is OUTSTANDING! :thumbs: :thumbs: The pics on there site is dead on except for the bubble shrooms they were better than .
From the begining to the end they were there . So far there are no issues at hand other than som pissed off corals . The water temp ran 68* but no issues . The rock that they did make fit nicely into the tank not too big not too small , it fit right into the void where I had the torch . The torch got moved off to the side . and the frog spawn to the back area .
The shrooms needed moved since they were being blasted with the water movement so I moved them and ticked them off even more . I am going to fashion a cage to put over them to keep them from getting blown and allow them to foot better on the LR I have for them . it will just be an eggcrate cage for now that will sit on top of it and just hold it inplace . Once we see that the foot has hold (probably 2 weeks or so I can remove it . I will try and remember to post up pics of it .
1st ones are the new corals that I recieved !

Thanks that has to be one of my favorite too . It really does have the look of a BTA .. It is still small about 2" but it has some nice expansion too. There is a green one like it as well

awesome sadie, i cant believe this is only a 10 gallon. the growth on the blasto is amazing. good luck with everything, seems like keeping up on the water changes is making a big difference.

Thanks ItalianSausage it has just been massive H20 changes , I have roughly changed out about 50X the volume since I have been hitting it hard . , I still have some traces of the snot but I think that by concentration on high water volume export that has helped it . I have also been stirring the water a bit more when I do changes then I take the filter pad out drain the filter box and replace it .. Alot of work I must admit since water changes went from a 20-30 minute job to closer to an hour since i have to try and hand clean each area ..

Thank you .

It has not been with out its battles and ups and downs . I must admit . I lost corals with the battle of the dinos . I could never really figure out why I was unable to keep zoas. I have good lighting for what I keep , zoas , LPS and shrooms and 3 leathers .(80 watts PC) I run a higher K rating (50/50 and actinic) so I know that slows growth down a bit . I faithfully do my water changes , and maintain the lights by changing them out every year on the dot .All my testing is WNL ,so I figure it was the dinos that killed them . I finally got some cheep zoas here locally they have green eyes ,and blue stripes in them so we will see what they "morph" to .
There have been weeks that I just wanted to rip the dagnabbed thing down and flush it , but in talking with a couple other reefers they said it would not be worth it just to keep battling it with 100% water changes for a while , then with 50% weekly once we see it nipping it . I still can not figure out why the skimmer is not really pulling any thing out ? I guess the water is to clean ?
In seeing what most of your tanks look like mine dosent hold a candle to any of those ! .
Thanks for the support guys/gals , and the compliments it really does mean alot to me

That is a great collection of corals. I would address the slick on the top of water column tho'.

What size is it; it has a big look to it.

Puffer it is a 10 gallon tank ... The slick is just camera angle , if I aim the PH any higher I get spray big time and over shoot ...
