I just received my new lights for my SW tank...a quad T5 HO unit with built in moonlights. Very cool...my corals are loving it, my snowflake eels...not so much.

did a 40% water change... still a little cloudy but will keep doing water changes daily until it clears up. If anyone has some advice on how to clear up cloudy water let me know please!

Add 1" filter floss to your HOB filter & keep changing it out, if it gets clogged.
You are getting sleepy... you only hear the sound of my voice... you must do water changes... water changes... water changes... water changes...

Nothing - it's still too early. Camille wakes up cranky and likes to bite things/hands/fingers. Better to wait for her to wake up first, then work in the tank.

Watched my crays go nuts and fight over fish flakes and blood worms. The breeders go NUTS when they finally come out of hiding lol

"Hum..Why is this huge bottle of fish flakes empty?"

"Oh, I fed the fish for you last night momma"

"What?!?", as I then begin checking tanks and realizing that several tanks have pink/peach colored water and an inch of flake food on the substrate.

"They were hungry momma!"

Watched my sleeper goby dig this really strange hole under my live rock. It just looks weird... have you ever seen an antlion den? That's what it reminds me of.
