So it got a little worse but now it's all better 😅.. was starting to worry me bc it got worse each day for about 3 days... 😦

 

On a bright note I'm seeing less alage on the glass and the cyano seems better this week too. Maybe cleaning the sump was the ticket 😊

Nice. So all clear now?  I need to do a water change and a major cleaning. Theres just not enough time in a day.

Wife almost bought a waterbox today. Decided to hold off and try to figure out of it's better for her to get a small tank, or take mine and I get a larger one.  

Oh bigger tank of course!!!

I did a big sand siphoning today. Broke down and did my water changes all early since I need to dedicate tomorrow to paper writing. Had some nasty algae in the sand beds. Gotta get a better siphon for the big tank though. The gigantic one I have currently is just too big and clumsy to work with and so difficult to fit between the wall and the rocks. At any rate, I expect to have good parameters tomorrow

I really like my current tank. It is sort of annoying though that I cant keep many fish though. Like I have 7 currently in this tank and only 2 swim around, and they are all small.  Next tank that I get will most definitely be tang sized.  Cant speak for my wife though. She really liked the 28 gallon waterbox "frag" tank.

Yea I get that.. something about the tangs and their free swing that is so relaxing.  I really want to get another kole tang... still stumped why my first two died.. was really weird. Thinking I didnt feed them enough and the tank was just WAY to young.

I like our coral beauty too. He and the tang are both good free swimmers. The wrasse, clown pair and YTD all kind of hang out in one spot in the tank. The YWG has lately been swimming straight up the water column like he's trying to swim into the light...

I love angel fish they are so fun to watch.. just dont want them to pick at the corals.. Imo it's more a question of when they start to pick at corals then if they will😥

I hope so too😊.. from what I read coral beauty's are supposed to be the most reef safe! Honestly those peppermint shrimp you have is what makes me worry the most.. I had one that was great for awhile then ate 2 corals almost over night.  It was an apsista eating mofo though

Yeah I remember your warnings and I'm watching Bonnie and Clyde close. That's the nice thing about having a sump. I can snatch them up and toss them in there. Of course, they'll have to contend with that coral banded shrimp that lives down there....

I don’t feed any of my dusters. They catch what they need.

They usually sort of attach themselves eventually.

I’ve found you have to be careful with flow for them and they’ll hide for a while when you move them. I keep mine with part of his tube in the sand bed but his body stood up against the rocks

So at the store he was out. Never came out in the bag.. as I set him in the tank he was coming out.. serously the second I set it down it was all the way out.  Kinda crazy..
