My tank is just exploding with the beginnings of CA. The brown is turning lime green and then pink. I'm stoked but am already seeing how much maintenance I'm going to be doing in the future. Looks F****N awesome though!

Nice, i always advise people to scrape some off with a razor blade when it starts growing & let float around the water column if you want it to spread

That's basically what I'm doing when I clean the glass right? I just grad my razor and scrape the glass and let the stuff blow around, although I suppose I could scrape the rocks with my fingernails and that would do as well. Great Idea!

Glad I thought of it...

When it starts cranking you will need to keep a eye on your cal and alk. I like it scraping and maint. is part of the game.

I'm already dosing for Hardness at least twice a week. I'll have to do a calcium test but every time I test it's over 520. I agree the Maint helps to keep me connected to my tank. I'm so into what's going on with the other stuff I hardly look at Tommy, my Maroon.
