    It really is. I was doing a water change and he stopped right in front of me. Right at the surface of the very still water. Made for a great picture.

    Rough weekend.

    Saturday morning I woke up about 8:00am to start some laundry. Check my tank as I do every morning, all is well. Head back to bed for an hour. When I get back up, I hear a dry pump running in my fish room. Thinking it was my ato that went dry (which it was), but it was much worse then that. My 110 gallon fuge had sprung a leak. The water in there drained into a trough that I had built with a drain hole to my basement. The design worked well, even though I'd guess about 100 gallons went through the floor. Hope that the damage to my floor joists and basement is minimal as I haven't been able to assess this situation too much as of yet. Once all the water was cleaned up and the tank was emptied, I assessed how bad the situation was, and it was bad. The 110 was not repairable. Now in order to remove the tank, I had to break it apart with a hammer. It was intense. Once the tank was removed, I went and bought another brand new one. I went with 75 gallon as my baffles can be reused with the same I.D. I placed the 75 in a trough similar to what I had done under the 110. It now sits perpendicular to the 220. After spending a lot of hours plumbing and building a refugium, I can hopefully start this new setup back up tomorrow (fingers crossed).

    My 220 hasn't seen any negative effects. Fish and coral all seem good.
