Looks like aiptasia under your coral and towards the back. You are coming along nicely.

They hitchhiked in on a free coral, being a generous host Green fed the aiptasia some lemonade and they haven't been seen since.

Thanks for clarifying Seven.

On a side note...
Silica is found in the oceans anywhere up to 10 ppm and it is removed from our salts and our additives. Silicates help to produce different types of algae, that are more readily eaten by our pods, and other things in our tank (ie tangs and regular hermits).

I read about it in this article By Randy Holmes-farley

my cyno stage was terrible. Sadly I had/have a huge nitrate problems from DSB of crushed coral...i don't want to get into that... Eventually I ended up dosing red slime, and siphoning off the stuff that wasn't killed off. All clear now!

Between work and sick kids I haven't been able to put the time into monitoring and dosing the sodium silicate and since I want to do it properly I'll wait till I have the time and energy. On a side note I got quite the ich outbrake and have started a "Natural" ich treatment/experiment that I think will work. The experiment started on Tuesday afternoon and I have seen major reductions of ich on my tangs (may just be falling off to breed so we will wait and see on that one)... The flame wrasses still have a fair amount of ich on their front 1/4 (I think it's cause the shrimp are scared to get near their mouths) But overall I have seen a reduction. It will take 10 days before I will say if my experiment is being successful or not.
