  2. If all of your parameters are testing within range, it could be that your lights are too intense and encouraging excess algae growth. I experienced recurring cyano after increasing my red/orange spectrum in particular. Took a minute to realize this was the cause, but after adjusting the light settings it has not returned.
  3. I have a Zetlight over my Cad 68g, same width, and it's great. Price is right too... http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/zt-6600a-led-light-apex-ready-zetlight.html
  4. Rastas, duncan and wellso...
  5. RBTA, scrambled eggs and blueberry...
  6. Here is an updated shot with a few new pieces including a bluberry gorgonian back right.....
  7. Is your tank near a window or getting hit with sunlight by chance? Only time I battled algae like that was when I moved into a new place and didn't have window blinds yet.
  8. I like the island rock. Did the same for some Xenia to keep it from spreading everywhere.
  9. Yeah man, all good. Got their skimmer and reactor too. No complaints except the return tubing was a little flimsy so swapped it for something more sturdy. I upgraded from a 24G NanoCube and glad I did. I much prefer the sump to an AIO and with more room to work maintenance has been easier. There is a link to my tank post below.
  10. But if it doesn't you'll have a sweet setup at a great price. I took the risk haha
  11. Yep, that's what sold me. I've seen a few poor reviews and complaints about customer service. Maybe I got lucky, but no problems with anything. My order arrived as advertised and all works great so far. Would definitely recommend.
  12. Agree with above that #2 is a goniopora and #6 looks like a blastomussa to me, not an acan. Off to a good start!
  13. I would try to reduce or eliminate gfo and/or bio pellets. Could be he's just over stripping the water. Seems it's more the stony stuff that's struggling while the photosynthetics are maintaining but not showing much growth. I'd let it replenish a bit and see how things look in a week or so. I had some sps turning white, cut bio pellets and color started coming back in a few days. All good now and haven't needed the pellets again yet. His skimmer and fuge might be enough on its own for the bio load, especially since not feeding much.
  14. I had a 12g Mr. Aqua and currently have a Cad 68g. I'm a fan of both and think you'll be happy with either. As for which dimensions are better, I would base that decision on what you plan to do for lighting. Big difference between the spread necessary for a 24" vs a 36" wide. Figure out the lighting situation and I think you'll have an answer on which tank is right for you.
  15. Doesn't look like aiptasia to me either. What happens if you irritate them? Do they close and shrink up or retract into the rocks?
