    Very nice! I had a feeling it was a vine haha. The corals are looking great.

    Thanks. I only wish that damn blue/green cyano would puff, disappear. This was a quick fts shot taken at lunch with my phone. You can see the green from a mile away.

    Lost this guy yesterday... I said to myself I would build a screen top a while back. I did not and as a result I lost another fish. I better get on this asap.

    Alk of 4.7? That's way too low IMHO. And the Mag?

    The alk may explain the low pH. Alk is one thing I've always had to dose regardless of how much ca.

    I need to do this soon too.. I'm thinking of using egg crate and clip it to the size I need. $200 Golden Dwarf Moray dried up on my tile will not be a good start to my day!
