    Day 7 :p

    Still have not done my routine maintenance for 3 reasons

    1. Sick
    2. Getting the new tank on Monday, my hand will be in it enough.
    3. This thread turned into a personal challenge.

    Thanks for all that contributed.

    I've gone almost 12 hours without putting my hands in the tank if that counts for anything.

    Dang it!! I still haven't either :oops::rolleyes:
    I'm going to be in there either today or tomorrow, easily. haha

    my king midas zoas are now growing upside down. zoas, ah the coral you can throw in the sand and it will change it's growth pattern and then one day just melt away. haha

    Mr Bill, you are making me think I might be missing out on something :D

    It just seems like there's always something. Coral fell over, changing filter socks every 3 days, I try to use powerhead to blow out detritus as often as I can which lately is once or twice a week. I vacuum at water changes. Scraping coraline algae...Seems like there's always something.
