we have to be on your friends list to see the video... you need to make it a public video instead of private.

Nice video... What is your Question? let us know what you know and we can try to help you from there. Those are nice nitrogen bubbles in your sand.

Anything anybody sees that I could do differently in the tank? I hate that i have nitrogen bubbles which means the SB is doing its job yet I obviously have Nitrates and/or phosphates that i can't test because the algae is eating them faster. I did install a Phosban Reactor Wed. night and just ordered another one to fill with Seachem DeNirtate hoping they will help.

You could get some livestock that likes to eat the cyanobacteria.

It looks like your sand is working as fast as it can.... you either need more rock or some plants or to have less livestock... because your system is out of balance... do you have a refugium?

I have 100lbs of rock, 60 lbs was live rock been in tank for years 40lbs was reef rock that was put in back in Nov or Oct 2009. I have 4 fish in the tank 2 Green Chromis, Bicolor Pseudo, a maroon clown about 75 snails and a serpent starfish. I had Nitrate levels of 160ppm for a long time and now that I have gotten them to bounce between 2-5ppm I think my rock is leeching it out after soaking it up for so long. I think that is what is causing my Cyano. So I bought a Phosban reactor and got some phosban even though Phosphates are reading 0 and I have another Phosban Reactor that will be here Monday or Tuesday that I am going to fill 3/4 way with Seachem's De-Nitrate. The plan is to fill it with tank water and some bactreria cut it off and let it sit for a week, let the bacteria multiply and then cut it on to a slow steady drip of about a drip a second. I like Seachem sorry! I donot have a fuge wish I had the room. I am thinking of getting about 40lbs more reef rock and break it up and slowly add it to my sump.

Then it might just be a balance issue and over time things will balance out again. I still say get something that likes the cayno
