    Thanks! Now that I've found a way to get the tough algae spots off, I'll be cleaning it regularly! It looks like a whole new tank!
  2. I’m glad everything worked out! That’s so alarming!

    Garth is my favourite! I wish I saw him more often.

    I planted today! Well, technically I planted yesterday, but water managed to escape even past the silicone and pool on the table. So I took it all out, and duck taped a double layer of freezer ziplocks in! Hopefully that holds up. This afternoon I stuck the plants back in. I just added pieces of the various houseplants scattered around the living room for now. Pico by orb1915, on Flickr This afternoon I also gave the pico a water change for the first time in at least two weeks since I finally cleaned my other tank. I didn't see the point in taking out dirty water to add fairly dirty water back in. I added a couple new zoa polyps from things that have grown well in my other tank, and cleaned the glass! Since the beginning of the contest, I've pretty much just removed the film algae. The hard green spots were tough to scrub off with a toothbrush. There was a lot, and the pico looked kinda gross. So this time, I tested a few things. A toothbrush, exacto knife, razor, and an abrasive scrubbing pad. The pad worked really good! The razor and exacto knife couldn't get anything off the glass, and I had the same troubles with the toothbrush as before. The class is squeaky clean now! Pico by orb1915, on Flickr The caulerpa has grown so well! It was taking over, so today i removed a huge amount and put it into my other tank. Pico by orb1915, on Flickr I also figured out today that the best way to make sure I'm removing the nasties is to gently baste the sand, and then immediately suck in the dirty water. This was the gross result! Pico by orb1915, on Flickr

    Today I did the first water change in about two months. Everything still looked great, but I figured I shouldn't push it too far. I used distilled yet again. I still have to test the RO/DI, but the replacement piece arrived and is installed. The media bags and racks were filthy, and there was a nice clump of hair algae growing in the usual spot in the back chambers. I scraped a bunch of coralline off the media and fuge racks into the dt in hopes of getting more coralline in there. It grows so well in the back, I think because of the sunlight. While cleaning, I noticed that cabbage leather was growing where I had previously removed it from the rock! It's pretty amazing what coral can do!

He came out and zoomed around for a while! Reef by orb1915, on Flickr Here's the reef as of now. Much cleaner! Reef by orb1915, on Flickr

    Wow, thank you! That means a lot

    That was mine as well. I crammed almost 30 pounds of rock in as a pile/wall when I started because I thought I was supposed to! Much happier since I removed a bunch.

    It’ll be fine. I removed a massive rock from my tank a couple months ago with zero issues. It was like 5lbs I think.

    I contacted a guy who is an hour and a half away who runs a reef store. He is placing an order in about four weeks, and I’ve asked him to order me a carpenters flasher wrasse and a yellow watchman goby! Definitely at the max for fish.

    If you’re only taking a small amount out, you should have no problems just taking it out. Your bio filter won’t be affected that much.
  12. It’s great to see an update! Sorry to hear about the problems, hopefully the fluconazole clears the bryopsis up!

    That’s a good idea! Do they make good house plants? For the moment, I’m just going to put in bits of whatever I find around the house, but come spring I have no problems with redoing it with more suitable plants!
