Amuze-
If you aren't currently working with a Realtor...let me know.
I have lived in Mt Pleasant for 21 years and would be happy to help you with your house hunt.

The two times mine stuck...it stuck in the off position.  My tank blew bubbles and flicked the float switch and the ATO started pumping again.  Haven't had it happen in about 10 months now.

I have had the float stick on mine twice in 2 years as well.  Overall, it works great.

I use the JBJ ATO.  Works well and wasn't expensive.

They are pretty tough...I have hundreds of them at one time in my tank.

Looks like a small feather duster.

The Fish Bowl / Re: Trip to Columbia

The guys up at Fishy Business are all about corals! In the past they were really good about sending out their specials via email.  Not sure if I unsubscribed (don't get to Columbia very often) or if they stopped doing it.  They make trips to Florida to hand pick many of their corals at the wholesalers.  They run a lot of good specials so keep you eye out!

I use to check it every several months....
After doing this for almost 20 years...I can usually pick up on when my parameters are out of whack (coral not opening up/fully extending) and can correct the problem without having any major issues.
I honestly can't remember having a coral deteriate this quickly.

I will probably monitor my KH every 3-4 days for the near future... since it is an easy test to do.

I am honestly not sure what caused the drop.  All other parameters tested fine.
Only thing that I have done differently in the last 2 weeks was 2 10% water changes with Seachem Reef Salt.
I had to pull my snails and hermits out last week...my melanarus wrasse decided they tasted good.

I lost 4 colonies of acans in the last 48 hours.  The only thing I can link to die off was a drop in my alkalinity.  It usually stays around 9dKh...but dropped to 4dKh.
All other corals look fine except a portion of some of my candy corals.

I personally would let it go naturally.  I do not like adding chemicals to the tank.  You may need a few more crabs and/or fish to get your tank to cycle though.  I am not sure 1 damsel and no live rock will do it.  I always have clownfish in my tanks...and usually start the tank off with them.  They are hardy enough to last through a cycle.
