Hey Jasoninnm, is that a remora skimmer u got? I noticed the pump.. dude cover the hole that the pump takes the water from the tank into the skimmer because I also have a remora and I found one of my damsels dead cuz he got stuck in there.. I covered it with floss then I put a ruberband around it so it wouldn't get sucked in.. and that just happened today..): I've Ben trying to capture the damsel for some time and bring him to my lfs but I couldn't because all the liverock he was really meen but no fish deserves to die.. especially like that): well I'm just giving u some advice from my experience because sooner or later your clown might get sucked in there and ul wish u did... let me k wut u think.. best of luck

Be careful what you ask for. I got my pink and white algae going a few years back. Combination of proper lighting, calcium availability and Kh.
It is very hard to clean off the glass or acrylic. This is a hard algae that can scratch the tank easily with the force required to remove it.

It does show that the water quality is pretty good, as it has to have calcium to grow. And I don't think a reef that cannot grow it is as healthy as it needs to be to grow coral. Especially hard corals. But it can be a real pain.
