As bleached as it is right now, I think mysis a couple times a week will be more beneficial than light, after it's finished w/ treatment of course.

If it were mine I’d go straight to the display after day 7. Nothing really to be gained by observing in a Qt tank if you don’t have any other gigs IMO. To be honest, if it goes downhill after cipro you’d be unlikely to save it whether it was already in Qt or if you had to pull it out of the display to attempt to retreat anyway. I think getting in a well established tank with much more stable parameters will help it more than anything else at this point. Don’t blast it with too much light initially though.

Oh. Well maybe stick with the 3 days observing then. Iíd still probably take a chance if it were me but being cautious canít hurt.

I think that was right after water change. it looks about the same fully open.

I put the Gig in the display tank just now.

Placed a ton of rocks on the corner for it to climb. It's at halfway point.

There is a Sea Swirl on top for flow. Beside that, I have a huge Panta Rhei pump on the other end of the tank. I think I need to pick up either a MP60 or another Panta Rhei pump for this gig. The other green gig loves the combo flow of SS + Panta Rhei. I think I'll only use the SS for a day. Allow it to move around safely.

fingers crossed

day 2 in DT. I turned the return pump to max so the Sea Swirl can give it more flow. Looks good, it's whole body moves with the flow.

Not many pumps that stick to 1" thick glass.

-Gyre 280, I don't think the anemones like it
-MP60, dangerous to the carpet, but loves the random flow. I'll most likely get this
-Panta Rhei 63, matches my other unit and create good flow. but cost 2k+
