Not much is wrong, aside from some bubble algea. Plus I think there isn't enough flow for sps, as of now. Me being how I am, I want everything to be prestine.

Got back from our mini vacation yesterday. I had to draw an extensive diagram to show our tank sitter, my grandma, how to top off our tanks. Everything was good when we got back. :happy:

It's going very slow, but after the big hurdles it'll go fast. In terms of getting it put back together.

While doing a water change I noticed that my green birdsnest has a little patch of white kinds of in the middle. I'm scared :( it has been growing like crazy and has at least doubled in size since I got it. And when all of the polyps are out, they are greener than can be. I accidentally skipped a water change last week, so I just did one and I'll see how it is in the morning.

Crazy adjustment. Also try the Hydor AquaClear powerheads (not the filters).

I think the tunze 6025 might fit my budget and my needs.

You'll be shocked how strong the 6025 is. I had two in my 60 shallow and was blown away. Long story short, they were super noisy so I sent them back (they were an older model). The 6045s are adjustable, so I'm going to try and have them be the only pumps in my tank.

I hope my powerhead comes quick. My birdsnest looks like crap.
