  1. So if it's kept under control I shouldn't worry about it? I also don't mind how it looks.
  2. Is it bad to leave it alone for now?

    Here is a picture from the top of the tank. Is there any real way of telling without irritating it and getting it to close up? From above it almost looks like it is "splitting"
  4. So any ideas on what the "purple stuff" is? I'm assuming some sort of macro? Unless it's harmful is it bad to let it grow?

    Things are coming along nicely. I would still love to add another sort of invert or small goby, but I'm going to let the tank ride as is for a bit. Also is my darker clownfish a run of the mill clownfish with darker colorations or different than the other one? My first additions, the Duncan and the green hammer look to be pretty happy and showing great growth. I was also doing some reading about hammers and.it appears that mine is the "wall" variety as it is not branching into new heads but just getting larger. Is there any for sure way to tell at the moment?
  6. Here it is again after growing for almost another month. Also any ideas on what's growing on the rock below the purple thing? also any ideas what this guy is?
  7. I know the pictures are junk but I tried. What ever they are they appear to be slowly growing? Some of them are more hair like, and others appear to have flat "leaves" Thanks for any help.

    Everything is still doing well, and I added some new stuff from divers den last weeekend, a Photosynthetic red plating sponge and a branching green star polyp. I don't have much faith in the sponge making it as I cut it off of the giant frag plug and harpooned it to a rock with a toothpick haha.

    Reactor for Im peninsula 14

    I ordered the IM reactor and some kolar labs gfo, they should.be here Tuesday. As far as carbon goes can I use any old activated carbon, or should I look for ssomething reef specific?

    Here are some current pictures of the tank. Its starting to come along nicely.
  12. I don't want to run chaeto so I like the idea of a media reactor. I already run purigen and chemipure blue in my media rack, and have a mighty jet return pump and a tunze ato float in the return chamber, so the reactor would have to share the middle chamber with my cobalt 75w heater. I'm mainly looking to run gfo (maybe mixed with some carbon?) so I wouldn't need a giant reactor. What will work in my space? I would prefer to try to keep it as silent as posiable, and in the tank also. I have looked at the innovative marine one and like the removable center chamber, but have herd bad things about the reliability of the pumps. Is ther any truth to this?
  13. Is this too much light for my tank? I've read that this can be run off other controllers instead of a slave off of a regular m80, but I can't really find any information about what will properly run it. Am I better off putting this thing back in the box and waiting for a new tank buld, or should I find a way to control it.
