  1. Thanks Weetie!
  2. So I have some new additions to the tank! Tiny Cown Goby, Scarlet Skunk Cleaner Shrimp and a Firefish. Also a ric frag. Everyone seems happy and even ate when I fed this afternoon! Also picked up both Ca and Alk testing kits. LFS tested my water and Ca was sitting at 420, Alk was at 10.
  3. To google!!!!!!!!
  4. So I was looking my tank over today and noticed these little growths on one piece of macro. Anyone know what they are? They have very small fans at their tips. Photo is about as good as it's going to get....
  5. Looks great! Hooray for new stuff!
  6. Thanks! Me too!!
  7. I win.....the undesirables have lost their battle with my macros! GSP was just rolled over by a snail....it got pissed. Everything is still testing well. Going to try and find a few more cheap frags this weekend. Maybe Zoa's, torch...not sure yet. I want to find a fun shrimp too, and my third fish!
  8. Nice! First 20H I've seen posted about since I set mine up. Great start!
  9. I just finished battling this myself! I put some display macros in the tank. Took about a week, but I'm finally seeing clear water and glass. I don't have space for a HOB refugium, but if I did I would have gone that route. It will def compete with any other bad algaes that try to get a foot hold. I wouldn't get rid of any snails. Nassarius snails do a great job of stirring the sand bed. Sometimes these things just need time too...
  10. New stuffs are always fun!!!
  11. Congrats! Tank is looking great!
  12. I just did the same thing. @Weetabix7glues macros all the time and gave me the same advice. You could always go with fishing line as well. Then cut the line away after the macro attaches itself.
  13. We have progress!!! Testing showed I'm finally low on nitrates! Scrubbed off the last of the GHA. 🤞🏻 Moved a couple things around. Still having to clean the glass off, but it looks like it's not coming back as fast...Time for pics!!
  14. It's all on the glass. I feel like it's a viscous cycle. I clean the glass and the water is cloudy. If I leave the glass the water is crystal clear....It also only covers the glass where the light touches. It follows weird patterns with the light.
