ok well ive had a green film on the rocks for awhile now. only the rocks not the sand...some kind of diatom?

do you think it will fade or is it a problem with something im doing? my nitrates and nitrites are ok last time i tested. on a sidenote im getting nice corraline growth coming :) dripping kalk really made that take off

beautiful tank!! I love the cave, and all the clean space in front of it. lots of room for some pretty ricordea :)


Your fish selection reminds me of mine when I first started my tank... but alas.. my little chromis has passed on :(



what kind of light do you have on the tank?

looks really good, lots of room for the corals to grow, and great pictures too. and your not overstocking GREAT. hows feeding the sun coral everyday? thinking about getting one for the 80cube but it might be more work than its worth.

i actually think that the suncoral is part of the algae problem...all the excess nutrients. im thinking about selling it back to one of my lfs. i like it lots but yeahhh. all the uneaten food isnt fun.

also moved the ricordia into the shade.

yay! pom pom crab is what i got yesterday :)

he is being all shy right now but hopefully give it a couple days and he will get comfortable so i can get a picture.

sun coral is gone... <_< but i wasnt feeding right and i think some if not all of my algae problems come from its feeding. also doing a bigger water change than normal today. well we will see what happens...
