yeah, I was a little worried this time. Not sure why though. I think my major worry was that my ATO res couldn't last the full 8 days, so I added a bit more water to the tank to begin with (about 2g extra). I know this would dilute the salt content in the tank, but I figured 2g out of 130g is pretty minor.

Actually came home to two extras. I guess my "edit" didn't take (probably closed the laptop too quickly). My JF Screemin' Demon also split (just didn't look at the QT Frag/Invert tank). It's super small though. Was going to move it to the main tank this week, but I guess I'll give it another week to heal before my clowns get aggressive with it.

Welp... decided to replace the RO Filters today...

While tightening the canister, it broke the bracket, which put strain on the 1/4" nipple that connects the RO units to each other broke. So $100 later I have a bunch more upgrades to the RO/DI setup on the way. Going to a dual DI filter.

Also ordered a Flipper Max that comes in tomorrow.

Goodies arrived...
Glad I got the Flipper Max for the main tank and the Flipper for my nano. It's nice having them really remove all the stuff quick and easy. The big magnified viewer is pretty cool. Never had one but it's pretty cool.

The magnifier is pretty sweet. When something is the perfect distance it really makes it bigger. Hard to see it in the pics, but it really does help. The flipper max is amazing. The size is great and it's super strong on this tank. So glad I went with it. Cleaning the glass is a breeze now.

Added this Acro yesterday afternoon ( probably 20 min before pic's):

Good stuff. I especially like the clownfish eggs part of your update :LOL:
If you ever want to borrow my larval trap, let me know. Not needed at the moment.

lol my goal is to buy a tile / pot and put it in there and let you have them to see if you can raise them (I don't want any... too much work).
