  1. flow isnt an issue, I am running an mp10 at full blast on reef crest keeping sps. I have cyano in higher flow areas where you wouldnt think it would grow.
  2. Does light spectrum have much effect on cyano growth. I remember reading that running more blue vs white light will help slow down cyano growth? I am running a kessil a360w and have a cyano problem. I really dont think it is a nutrient issue driving the cyano problem, tank has never tested high in nutrients and I dont have a heavy feeding hand. I run my lights for 12 hours and have always kept the spectrum fairly white, will going as blue as the kessil gets have an effect on the cyano?

  4. I think any sps food works. Reef chili when I target feed, everything gets leftover rods food when I feed my fish.
  5. I only replace my carbon once a month so I'm not too worried about that. Why would gfo destroy the carbon if it tumbles?
  6. Is there much of an advantage to running gfo and carbon in the same media bag? I have read a few posts that claim this helps keep the gfo from clumping and water comes into contact with more of the media. Thoughts?
  7. I would steer clear of mandarins in a tank that small. Mandarins need a constant supply of food otherwise they will starve to death. The most practical way of meeting their dietary needs is through a healthy supply of pods. A mandarin would most likely consume the pod population fairly quickly in a small tank like a biocube especially without a refuguium for the pods to reproduce. Research research research before introducing species that require special care!
  8. Looks good! Is the tank still fresh water?
  9. 79 with an ink bird to make sure it stays there
  10. +1 to above post
  11. I don't think 1440 mg is something to be that concerned about
  12. Love the rock nems, one of my favorite things to watch in my tank, I love feeding them.
  13. I vote for # 1! You already have the gorg look going and I think some more additions would look awesome, especially a corky sea finger. Also I think the rics would add some good color, so KPA all the way.
  14. mp 10 is very common and does a good job, this is what I am running. I haven't seen many if any running the gyre as it is a lot of flow for this tank. Dialed back I think it would do well and if I didnt already have an mp10 and backup for it I would be tempted to try the gyre.
  15. Unfortunately my feather duster wasn't happy with his placement for an unknown reason. Below is a link to a video of the worm leaving his tube. I was not able to wait around for him to completely vacate his tube and found him being eaten by one of my acan colonies. I ripped him from the acans and then fed him to my RFA. Poor guy he was one of my favorite things to watch in the tank. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Qu5d4z_VaE
