With the opposite schedules do you have a lot of viewing time? I have my lights 11-9. I've always though about changing the schedule some.

We're at home at night so we watch the tanks then.

Did another water change....sucked out a bucket of algae 🙄. Next week I'm ordered a #### load of snails. At least I have a fat happy blenny 😑

Well here we go, I just finally set up the new aqamai kps and I really like it. It's so small and now there is room. It took me a few to figure it out, but it's in and looks awesome.

 

I also just took a bunch of pics of the tank with the new filter and macro lens...check it out and let me know what you think 😏

It's actually my pixel XL (phone) and a set of clip on filters with a macro lens that Katie got me for Christmas 👍

It has yellow and orange plus a 10x macro. They all screw together and you can mix and match. Those shots are all yellow. I might mess with the orange in a little bit.

Thanks WV😀...I'm really surprised how well they came out. Those are actually closer to the glass. The back ones it might be a little tricky to get good shots.

Ok, I thought I had set the pump up, but I guess i didn't. I can't for the life of me get the pump to connect to my wifi....🙄 I've read every step and it won't connect. Wtf

Looks like it may be similar to the PolypLabs one I have, which also has orange, yellow, and 10X that screw together (!)  and seems to be in stock at this time.

Ok so my Weds night picking of algae and water change is done.....I'm so sick of picking algae 🙄..looks like I'm gonna buy a red mithrax crab.

I'm trying everything to get this crap under control. This really is a hard battle to win....I'm wondering if I'm gonna have to do a water change every other day and see if that helps. Readings are off cause of the algae. Phosphate has never been over .1 even before the GHA started. Who knows, cuc, macroalgae and a crab and see what happens.

 

How many is too many in the snails department? Looking more for GHA eaters.

I actually used all live rock from my lfs tank. Really only got this problem a few months ago. All this time since march I've been good with no tank aids as Sancho puts it lol. I still think if I throw some nice macros in the tank they will out compete the hair algae. Could be dead wrong though.

I'm gonna get some cerths, Ive read they are good at eating some GHA. Blue legged hermits are supposed to be good as well.

 

Thanks for the help guys 😀
