I had planned to finally empty the 120L today. All the fish have gone, mostly to the LFS. All the corals that weren't heavily encrusted onto the big rocks have gone too. Most of the CUC have been moved to the 40L although there are still a few more to catch.

The broken skimmer has been removed and the gyre is turned off. The filter still provides circulation and the lights and heater are still on. The decor has of course been completely disrupted while catching the fish; the two big rocks spent 20 minutes out of the water before being roughly piled back in. And of course the water was completely churned up.

After all of that, one of my totally dead Montipora corals is showing new growth! Look at those little sprouts out of the top of the dead plate. There's dozens of them in several patches over the coral (though not everywhere). How on earth did that happen?

And some of the others seem to be a little brighter than they were before as well, including the Porites which is dead in the middle but still seems to be alive around the edges.

I'm not sure what to do now.
120L: 2 clowns, royal gramma, yellow goby/shrimp pair, zoas, ricordeas, torch, easy SPS
40L: Tiger shrimp and Wheeler goby trio, zoas, ricordea, favia, tree

Sometimes marine live shows you it's tuffer than you think.
Maybe it's a sign

Let's hope the same is true on the Great Barrier Reef!

Let's hope so, I always try to buy marine aquaculture or frag farm corals.
