I've indirectly turned my refugium into a 2nd display tank... Now home to a Bat fish, Chromis and a Blenny.

Most Cauliper goes sexual when you fiddle too much, I've got 4 diff species on reverse lighting (12hours) all same temp, placement, salinity level etc etc... My belief is it's about stability.

Yeah, so far I have 3 different caulerpas and a chaeto. The grape and fern caulerpa are doing great however the suction cup caulerpa is having problems

Not my photo, but this is what it looks like. Nice looking stuff and apparently is good food for tangs.

Caulerpa peltata, and do not put algae eaters in the refugium. Completely counter productive. The refugium is a filter. It's doing a wonderful job. Hair algae is just as good as anything else at removing nutrients.
