Red face aahhhh, signs of a rebound

ok so after my catastrophic wipe out (in my eyes any how) i have taken the time to sit back and reflect on my poor choices and attempt to make a plan for moving forward.... 1st i will get more sand.. 2nd a bit more rock... 3rd i will chill until all signs of life are growing like crazy before i stock.... as i sat tonight and checked out the tank i noted a few possitive signs... i have pods roaming round everywhere again (good) one of my corals looks like it is coming out of hiding (better) and upon testing all my water params are great (best chance for success) .. so the rebound is under way.

Sounds like you're on the right track. Good luck with it.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

give up?!?!?!? i may get cranky and whine a LOT but give up is just not in my nature... i am far to stubborn to bother... besides giving up is for quitters LOL.... i was very relieved at some of the signs myself and continue to watch and see where it goes .. i am also still planning on giving it a bit of a boost over the next few weeks to get things moving a little faster...

so over the last few days i was having this mysterious issue with my over flow to my sump not working proerly and almost flooding my dining room.... so i did the usual cleaned the line, force fed water through with a powerhead and all looked good.. still had the issue so i reajusted the flow from the return pump to the 1st chamber (set up to avoid burning out my pump and over whelming the outflow that can not keep up with full blast) everything re tuned did wonderful..... this morning i come down and turn on the lights and everything is running smooth however i startled one of my cats who thinks my sump is his personal sauna and drinking fountain while the little guy was scrambling to get out and not get in trouble i heard a "pop" sound. he moved a piece of plexi that hit the ball valve and readjusted my flow to the tank!!!!!!!! mystery solved he keeps messing with the valve.. so this weekend a new hood is to be built LOL
oh and i also noted the pods are running rampant all over the tank and i think i may be in for another diatom bloom which is a really good sign that everything is back on track...

sorry for the wall of text
