Drained water just past first sun coral group, and had about 5 gallons to spare.

Update on Flatworm Exit treatment: no flatworms that I can see, fish eyes are starting to clear, powder brown tank is fighting some kind of bacterial infection on his fins and forehead. Poor MoJo. Big water change to try to help him. I'm guessing the poison released by that many dying flatworms is causing the stress in the tank. Will continue with water changes and carbon changes.

Tried to drain about 45 gallons and took out water down to middle of garf bonzai and the top of the green acro was out of the water. It was too much water by about five gallons.

Replaced middle MH bulb. Replace this one last a year from now.
Was getting shocked in the water. Narrowed it down to a bad surge protector. Pulled it out. Need to ground tank to avoid it in the future.
Upgraded lights to 400w metal halide.
Changed about 40G of water and drained it to the point where just the tip of the blue stag was out of the water. Could have drained a couple more gallons.
All bulbs replaced. Front actnic cover was almost impossible to replace and back one is missing. Start thinking about new lights for next year when these bulbs are done.
