    ha, yeah.. phones and fishies make for horrible pics. Maybe algae will come through better though seeing as how it's not swimming around

    check out the reefcleaners.org site. I've never gotten anything personally from them but i've heard about them constantly on here and apparently they rock. Awesome cust service and sounds like they always load you up with extras... I personally like bumble bee snails, think they look sweet though sadly they don't have any of those. :cry:

    Thats not a bad issue IMHO

    running GFO in a reactor will certainly help reduce available nutrients and should help to reduce this and also help prevent it escalating rapidly

    additional CUC would be another good move with a mix of additional snail types, so that the tank walls, rockwork and sand bed all have species that are best suited for that purpose

    Yea its gotten better :) I will run some GFO and I will work on getting a good CUC. I think it will go away soon, I'll cut the lights and add some more snails and what not :) thanks for the help :)

    That's a massive crew with the current CUC - they're gonna get the job done pretty fast! lol
