  1. Does anyone else have issues with algae in the rear chamber? Thankfully, I have no issues with any nuisance algae in the front. But the back is a different story. I clean off as much of it as I can weekly. Just curious if this is normal since theirs no CUC back there, or a sign of a larger issue I need to address. Below are a few pictures for reference. Thanks in advance!
  2. Since you're only making 1-2 gallons at a time, why not buy a 2.5g jug and just shake vigorously a few times to mix. That's what I do at least.
  3. Welcome. And best of luck with the new tank! My aquarium keeping background was pretty similar to you. I set up my first reef, Nuvo 10, almost a year ago. Only major upgrades are the AI Prime, sicce return pump, media tray, and spin stream nozzle. It sounds like you're off to a great start and I look forward to seeing things progress.
  4. Good luck with the new setup! Where in South Florida are you? I'm in Tampa Bay, always good to know local reefers to swap frags with.
  5. Media baskets and SpinStream nozzles are great cheap upgrades.
  6. I know nothing about the C-Vue, but I own a IM10 and couldn't be happier with my choice.
  7. Tanks only two weeks old? Not too late to scrap it, and start a reef tank! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜‚
  8. Do you thaw the whole cube and feed? Because I believe theirs a lot of excess sh*t in those frozen cubes, could be wrong. But I put the cube in a little strainer and run it under water to thaw and then just feed the actual shrimp pieces. So none of the filler junks up the tank.
  9. I'm sure there's a better answer someone will add, but to start. Manually removal as much as possible, and cut back on feeding to every other day as well as cutting back light. Also test your phosphates, and if they're high additional water changes and potentially add a phosphate removal pad in with your filter media. These methods will help buy you time until you get a grasp on the algae and what's causing the issues.
  10. Here's a very informative 101 overview playlist of videos. It helped me a lot when I was just starting in the reef world.
  11. My pair behaves the same. The pistol will also snap whenever snails or crabs get too close to their entrance.
  12. Asterina Starfish, I've seen them in my tank from time to time and left them be. But I have read online of them multiplying like crazy and becoming a nuisance.

    Coral Fight Club

    Reviving an old thread, but I'm really curious how this matchup has played out. I've got a Digi finally starting to take off and it's right between two birdsnests.
  14. That's crazy. Keep us posted on how they grow out. I'd buy one if it gets to the point you sell them.
  15. I was actually just about to start a new thread on this, but I've got some red monti cap frags from a recent trimming. This is my first time fragging the monti and would also be my first time shipping a coral. I know they are very hardy and I would think they'd survive non-overnight shipping. If we can see how much it'd be to send 2-day or so, I'd be happy to send you one for free if you want to cover whatever shipping might be. Just let me know!
