Did I miss an updated FTS- hint, hint
I second that
I'll get one in a couple of minutes but remember - I've been struggling with the algae I'll get a close up of. Any help IDing will be appreciated!
posts are below - my photography skills really stink. I tried to get a close up of the algae but it doesn't really show up. I'll see if I can talk hubby into taking a macro shot with his camera.
Nice OFK. Looking good buddy.
The algae is not that bad mindy. That's what I struggled with for about a year until finally it stopped growing. I would scrub it off with a toothbrush. I make it a point to blow off my rocks daily with a baster and now that my biopellets are fully kicked in plus gfo, my nutrients are well exported. It takes a while but stay diligent. Tank is looking really good. So where do you get the purple plaster from??? Lol
Looks good Mindy. Since you do not have a lot of corals that can get knocked down you might want to think about a pin stripped urchin.
hey girl! I do have an urchin in there - would 2 be too much? I really like inverts
What type of urchin?. A pin stripped is going to help keep the coralline in check and probably eat those small tuffs of algae, but I would be hesitant to add a second if your current urchin is also a coralline or other algae eater.
I don't think my current urchin is much of a coralline eater I'll go check and figure out what kind it is....it's black with long spines but I don't believe it's a long-spine - sounds logical I know lol
update - it's a short spine urchin so that really makes me look like I know nothing
