One interesting aspect that I have noticed so far is that the bubbles when popping on the surface of the jar have coated the inside of the lid with a very fine layer of filth at the moment, I guess that this filtration system (airstone) is acting almost like a protein skimmer within the jars lid. Which is cool, but it does mean that I have an additional item to think about when it comes to maintenance


I also need to check that my mag cleaner will fit on the jars curves

Thanks:

No these were quick snaps without the Orange Lens on my Mobile, not in Pro MOde either as I need different settings on the Jar compared to the reef due to the curve
The A80 usually sends my phone's camera completely blue and here i have a A360WE in close range so my phone just doesnt bother with white balance

Ahh, I get it now, my note 9 seems to see the tank as I do, but my Fuji X30 just seems to see the blue-maybe that's it the phones have auto correction

I had a Samsung S8 before the WB went up to 14k, this (Huawai P30) maxes out at 10k so is very blue, even with yellow lense, needs the heavy orange to shift the spectrum back.

Any who, Derek out and about on the glass.

 Thank you for this post it’s great to see them your end. The heat took its toll during posting especially by the looks of the hystrix, but I hope they recover soon. I look forward to watching them bloom

Its odd, lights off they look bleached and almost completely dead. Lights on and they have the most amazing Polyp extension, even when the skin is off the Skeleton.

How strange,  well there's still a chance if there's even a tiny bit of flesh left so fingers crossed! If there are polyps it sounds positive.
