    so sorry to hear :( but it's good that you got it out of there before it caused a crash. What are the reddish things on your rock?

    I have a few questions....

    1. what size tank do you have?

    2. Are you running a sump?

    3. Are you running a skimmer?

    4. What do you have for water flow? Do you have any power heads or wave makers? Which ones are you using?

    The tank looks a little light on rock are you using some type of mechanical filtration?

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Well Becky that was a given pretty much unfortunately.

    Tank looks a lot cleaner.

    If you need some tips on algae reduction, pest anemone reduction or future livestock choices just let us know.

    Very nice looking tank? How long have you been running it for?

    One piece of advice on nems that I got that's proven out well over the years is to wait to add them until at least 6 months after the tank is started.
