You can remove the food for algae before it has a biomass if you do your pwcs before starting your tank... You get a little algae you scrub a little remove the small amount you get instead of scrubbing until you have gorrilla arms. You might not think highly of him,but when stuff gets weird, x has answers.

No, I never said anything of the sort, I think he's an extremely knowledgable individual, however I don't agree with him on this.

As I say, opinions, that's all.

It's called open debate, generally what forums are all about.

So white antics 8am-7pm
Blues on from 10am-7pm?

Ya, i'd like to keep the lights on, so the xenia doesnt die. Pest? Probably. But i am a beginner arent i?

If you like softies then xenia will be great, we all like our own preference, I used to like softies too, nothing wrong with them as a starter coral I guess.

Yes, but try and isolate what you have, I'd put the rock that it's on separate somewhere.

Easier than trying to peel it of other rocks.

Some Xenia is actually quite pretty, there are several different varieties.

Using your actinics as a warm up and cool down helps keep your livestock from getting scared from either a bright flash or total darkness. Sichas actimc on at 10am, whites at 11am. Whites off at 9pm, actinic off at 10pm.

Times are completely adjustable, just showing actinics on one hr before and one hr after the rest of the lights, if algae starts to grow cut back all lights by 2hrs and adjust from there.
