Im digging the stand, I wouldn't worry too much about the brace-less front. Just from looking at the upper interior framework its easy to tell that its a very sturdy and well-built stand. You've come way too far to wipe the slate clean now and start over. Corals are a sensitive organism and sometimes random things happen for no rhyme or reason. if your procedures and the such are consistent and correct, everything else will sort itself out along the way

if you have 2 x 4's in the 4 corners, it will hold fine. store bought stands only use 2 x 3, and some not even that.

They are 2 x 4's. I still have the coral in the bowl, put in a power head, salinity is 1.019 in the bowl, hoping too kill whatever it is, that's it for him, now only time will tell. Hopefully I got him out before any others get infected with what ever it is.

I'm going to be using a 20 gal as a sump. I will be making my own. Right now everything is just sitting there, waiting.

No sense starting now, gotta work tonite, been sleeping 12+ hrs a day and it's not enough still.

Decreased the length the lights are on. Algae building up in way too short of time. I've been having to clean the class too much.

Maybe next week after my string of nights is done I will feel like moving the tank, til then, thanks everyone. I like the stand too just wasn't sure of it's sturdiness and since I've got people's okay on it, now I feel better about it.

Til next week or well honestly....whenever, ya'll keep those tanks moving along and beautiful. I'll be poking my head in and around checking things out.

That stand looks good and is way better built than most store bought ones

Need good algae cleaners, how many, what kind, and from where?

Can anyone recommend please? Thank you.

Also sumo/fuge or algae scrubber or both? Can algae scrubber be in combo in sump/fuge?

Anyone got ideas?

Look into higher magnesium levels, that can help. Otherwise, my Tangs eat the stuff, as well as my dwarf angelfish.
I run a algae scrubber and still am battling a old outbreak of green bubble algae. Scrubbers are good for densely populated tanks and take up a fair amount of room.

Mostly for hair algae.

No tangs for me and I don't want to add any more fish right now.

I am looking at getting more snails.

@ Mr. X it was the encrusted horn, he has no more flesh, it has turned into brown gunky stuff which looked like brown jelly. He is still in qt. The elegance and coco worm still appear
to be doing good. The favia looks to be getting some color back but if he is it is not much. The 3 fish and 2 shrimp look like thet are still doing good also.
