    haven't updated in a while du to a battle with bryopsis....which led to cyano.....which led to dinos.... used everything from frequent water changes to reef flux...to chemiclean....to vibrant i eventually just stopped water changes for 2 months. I then took out all my rocks and brushed them clean. vacuumed 50% of my sand bed. and reduced my light cycle to 4.5 hours. i also took out some live rock and separated the ones i had in there. i figured if i minimized the nooks and crannys, the algae will have less places to get caught in and grow. it's only been 3 days but my tank is looking cleaner than ever. fingers crossed!

    awesome. congrats! i've always loved this tank. your tank is evident that sps frags need to be well spaced so that they have room to grow out. after some time, the results are amazing.

    Not much to update...haven't added new coral. Growth has been real good though and seems like the tank is getting more and more stable. I had a cyano outbreak a month ago which I battled with frequent water changes. What really did the trick was some chemipure blue. Good stuff! 2 months ago... Today.... Also..my green banded gobies have been gettin' freaky... Sadly had 2 fish go due to my stubbornness of not wanting to get a screen top. The blue dashed blenny and watchman goby.... I'll have to give in and get a top before getting any more fish

    the bayer dip killed 3 of em... i noticed some white circles on my pink zippers which i thought a week ago were new polyps forming...but they're actually nudi eggs!!!! They're encased in this sort of gel so it was impossible to remove with tweezers. What did the trick were q-tips. Hopefully I got most of those little bastards..but I'll keep a look out. I've read they can be rather difficult to get rid of because they could be anywhere in the tank looking for more zoas.

    Woke up this morning finding these 2 critters... Turns out to be zoanthid eating nudibranches. I did notice that most of my zoa's were closed the past 2 weeks. i thought i was because of my host hungry clowns. I'll try a Bayer dip this weekend.

    I loved the 2 green banded gobies so much, I made them a trio. They're so interesting to watch...scootin out of rocks, darting into hiding places... Especially great for nano tanks because of their tiny size. They make little nooks and crevices into a whole world. Here's a pic of the trio (minus 1)! also added a Tomini to my liveaquaria delivery. Here's him getting the intros out the way through the looking glass
  14. I use the same salt. I love how I don't have to dose my water changes since the params are perfect with each mix. I just dose enough to keep my alk steady.
  15. What salt do you use? and how much does your alk fluctuate by from after a water change to right before one?
