When is the last time you changed the filters in your RO/DI, and do you have a TDS meter? If so, what is the reading? It should be 0.

Although I have a smaller tank, i run two wavemakers on one side during the day and another larger one on the other side at night. Plus, I've got a 300gph HOB pushing water from back glass to front. When they switch from day to night I can see little bits and pieces moving around the water. Hope this info helps.

I don't always build a reef, but when I do I take my time. Stay patient my friends.

Building a reef is like going back in time and being 5 years old at Christmas!

Very good advice if you ask me. Also here is a good battle plan.

Adding a tang helped with my hair algae problem. All my reefer friends said that it'll die off with time but I added a few more snails and a tang and the tang cleared 75% of the fuzziness within a week
