Still have fairly high amount of brown diatoms. Brushed off as much as possible and siphoned 2 gallons of water. I had glued the Duncan polyp, Frogspawn, Sprung Stunner chalice, and Jack-O-Lantern Leptoseris in place last week. They all seem to be doing OK. Duncan is opening up more now that I tilted it off angle from direct light on face. Second bud on Duncan is growing.
