yes the mesh is replaceable. it's the same as changing a window screen.

as for the frags, they were from a local reefer who gave me a good deal on a frag pack.

my next shipment of frags will be more higher end including a walt disney and bunch of old school ora pieces. future dbtc sps.

another thing, you may want to move your photos away from the lights, long term exposure may speeds up yellowing your framed photos, unless you don't care about that and can be printed easily.
The moister from the water will destroy the pictures. Ask my ex wife why her pic are ruined and mine are not

his wife doesn't care.
man. why is everyone asking about those picture frames? frames were from ikea. pictures were prints from walgreens when they had the two free 8 x 10 promotion.

just a quick update. went bare bottom and couldnt be more pleased. added a jaebo ow40 wave pump. moved some corals around and added a chalice section in my tank. letting some sps grow and encrusted some more before adding more. thinking of removing the two 8x8x4 marine pur blocks cause a fellow reefer said it leaches aluminum, but everything seems fine.

no3 2ppm
po4 .003

Have you double checked your test kit first?
yes - i have been using salifert test kits. i also have the alk and cal hanna checker to double check against the salifert results.

You are going to have one crowded AF tank when those things start getting bigger, and better not go back to China that tank probably is sucking calcium up like a sponge.

That said, some super awesome frags you got there.
