Thanks guys.

I really don't think you all understand just how small these things are haha. I'd say the acans are 3/4" diameter... A FTS just really won't show anything other than a bunch of colorful specks. I will, however, get one just as soon as it's clear enough to see.

I'm sure in a year this tank will be bursting with color and will be one of the best 40b reefs out there

While I have to sincerely appreciate that comment... I hardly think it will hold a flame to many of the 40 breeders I've seen. But seriously, thanks!

So I am interested in your water clarity issues... any ideas or leads on what is going on there?

I've narrowed it down to one of 3 things... and I'm farily certain it's not one of them.

-Caulerpa has gone sexual (no idea if it's even remotely close though)
-Sand getting stirred up by goby (went on a tantrum the other night...)
-Bacteria Bloom (I really doubt it... but it's pretty much identical)

If you have a petsmart, petco, or Walmart nearby, buy Crystal Clear for like $2 and it'll last along time. Plus within a couple hours, your water will be more clear than you ever imagined.

My guess would be the goby when I had one he did nothing but make a mess

I'm going to try and clear it up with PWC's first... before taking any drastic action. May hook up a canister to polish it too
