    Did I miss the part about when you changed out the bulbs?
    And if you are feeding the anemones?

    If it was my tank I would put some tank water in an container, scrub each rock off in that water and rinse with sw.

    Run some chemipure elite, and or purigen.

    And a macro shoot of the the brown algae before you clean it off to make sure it is not dino. Corals hate dino.

    i squirted some reef snow at them (the 1 cant find the other i just saw it) but it doesn't grow. All my anemones seem to deteriorate after a few months. I think its because when i started feeding them its already too late.
    Actually thats the same thing that happened to my colt.
    I'm going to do some of the rocks in a little bit, could I use RO water instead SW to clean the rocks in?

    An anemone does not need routine if the lighting is good. Anemones will thrive under the right lighting and water conditions. You may want to review your lighting system prior purchase of another anemone.

    If you do feed them it should be sm pieces of raw meaty seafood that you can get from the supermarket. Place it on the tentacles and remove if uneaten, repeat every to weeks to monthly.

    i woud get your salinity down maybe run some chemclean to me it looked like some sort cyano i had a problem recently ran chem clean and did a 20% water change 2 days later and everything is looking ten times better and you should be doing 10% water change every week or two at least if your having issues like this i also run phosphate sponge when i get algae issues good luck

    Looks mucho better Yellow Tang. :)

    Not sure about chemclean all I can think of is chempure elite, basically just good carbon and some GFO.
