Looks pretty good to me.

It does appear from the 3rd pic that you've got a film forming on the surface. Try increasing your surface agitation a bit maybe.

looks good just a little mashed in the middle.... my oppinion is just to have it spread out more so your fishes have more caves and things toplay with...

I think i may have a bigger problem now, last night before bed i did see a slight increase in the protine film on the top of the tank If i had to describe it i would say its a Clear film, oily to the touch and from what i can smell has no oder. Tonight when i got home from school its has more then doubled in thickness.

i will tell you what i have done that may have cause this

1)i started doing PWC every 4 days to help reduce the Algae inside of the aquarium. i change 5g at a time with petcos 100% natural real ocean water.

2) have added another maxi-jet 600 to the aquarium pointed at the surface 24hrs a day

3)added a cup and a half of chemical filtration (Reef carbon) from my LFS

4)Set my Protein skimmer back up and runs all day every day

5)cut my feeding back to once every 3 days

6)completely cut out the lights except for when i feed the fish and then their only on for about 30 min

What can i try now? Any suggestions what could be doing this? i had no problem with this film when the tank was dirty and was not being taken care of. I thinks its something i must have done to cause this.

thanks
Michael
