heh, rock was clear this morning, now that I'm back home the back glass, sand and most of the rock is covered. yay.

But seriously, at least that gives me some bearing as to where I'm at on the time line.

True enough and quite smart of you to look at it like that. I try to do the same thing and just bear it knowing it's an inevitable phase.

the places on my rock that aren't dominated by diatoms, are starting to look very purple, I'm not sure if it's coraline forming or if it's the actinic. Either way it's purple and pretty so I don't care lol.

I'd guess that you got cured rock and that is the explanation. I seriously doubt that Cycle was of any benefit to you, JMO.

Don't know if I mentioned this before, but IMO a 75g is too small for a hippo tang. Just a thought.

What are your reasons and experiences with a hippo tang that leads you to this conclusion? I'm trying to keep my mind as open as possible.

I've seen a few in pet stores that like to wedge themselves in between live rock. I've read they like to hide a lot. Doesn't seem like they need a huge tank to feel secure and have lots of hiding places.

and various other inverts in time.

I'm thinking I should add the chromis first, Even though the tank is "cycled..." I'm not just super comfortable with it.
I would go with the chromis first as well and try to add them in odd numbers (JMO). My first fish was a blue/green chromis and thats what I was told to do by my LFS - he's now doing great!

Also, i hear the chromis do well in odd pairs. not even. Dont know why, and frankly dont care either, but i stick to the facts. odd pairs make better.
