Well good news / bad news

Good news - My O.s. finally molted! It appears that the shell disease came off with the molt - I know that there is a possibility that it may return, but we shall see. I was able to locate and remove most of it's shed. Will load pics tomorrow as camera batteries are dead.

Bas news - While doing my water changes I noticed that the peacock tank was leaking - Further investigation showed a nasty crack forming on the back of the tank where I had drilled my drains.

I hurried to empty the tank - I had to temporarily borrow a tank from a local reefer friend and get it setup.

For the time being, the peacock is in a 10g until I can get a replacement tank and bulkheads. It'll probably be only a week or so.
