Is that branchy thing soft or hard. If hard I think it may be some sort of macroalgae if it is soft it may be some sort of sponge and those might irritate your Zoas.
Looks easy enougn to just remove it and be safe.

Do as TC says and rip out that assumed macro....I have similar and once it sets in it acts like a weed and breaks apart very easily, thus new colonies elsewhere. I'd take the rock out and scrape it off, then running under water.

Did some testing today and this was the results:

Ammonia: 0
Nitrites: 0
Nitrates: 10
pH: 7.8 (its stable, so i'm not worried)

I was planning a water change for today, but I didn't get it done. Hopefully tomorrow or the next day it will happen. I think I'll test everything else before the water change.

I fixed the conduit to hang my light fixture. Right now I have it hanging about 1-2" up (from the legs to the tank rim). I can get my arms in better to mess with the tank like that, so I'm gonna leave it.

I also think I got my skimmer working. The water level in the first chamber stays above the intake of the pump now....still not even half of the chamber, but I really don't know how high its supposed to be. The siphon atleast appears to be working though.

And I finished the screen top. So, hopefully nothing can jump out.

I'm getting 7 frags from a friend. 6 various Zoas and 1 Clove Polyp frag. They will be here tomorrow!

If my parameters stay good, I plan on going to the lfs on Saturday to get the Hi Fin Banded Goby, if they still have it. And I'll check out their corals and see if any need to come home with me.

Clowns are doing well. They finally ate today. Not voraciously, but I'm not so worried about them anymore. They ate some flakes and pellets. Hopefully they'll be more voracious about mysis. They didn't really go for it last time I tried.

Pics tomorrow or Thursday!

Try some frozen brine, that stuff is like candy to them. Just melt it and rinse with RO/DI so you don't get all the phosphate.

I'm glad to hear you got the skimmer running and your tank is doing well. As thominil said they love frozen brine, brine/spirulina and mysis. The funny thing with the frozen mysis is that they sometimes get spooked because some of the shrimp are pretty big but eventually after studying it, eat it.

Oh yeah, where are the pics?
