    Hey guys,

    It's been a while since I've been active. I have a 210 gallon tank that had an electrical fire about 2 years ago. It killed everything....or so I thought. I've kept the powerheads running in a dark tank for the past two years and considered breaking it down, but it is 210 gallons and that is not a quick and easy task! So, i decided to fire it back up. I replaced some lights and added some new ones. I cleaned the glass and fired up the pumps. Got some algae for the refugium and a new light. To my surprise 1 head of a duncan coral was still alive and is coming back! The tank is close enough to a window that gets a little indirect light, but I am amazed that it is that resilient. Anyway, I just added a few clownfish the other day and am so excited to be back. Going slow and will post some pictures of the rebuild.

    BTW....anyone still on this site! :)

    I just relogged into my account today as well after a few years...looks like this site has died? Latest post in a number of the form sections are over a year old or at least 3-4 months..
