Thanks for all the nice comments! Thincat, I think I already need a larger tank. Looks like that 50g upgrade I want when I move might need to be a 75g. FWIW I'm done with the fish stocking. And I am pretty much out of room for corals, so I'll have to resist buying anything new until I upgrade.
Finally, a full tank shot, or 2 to make up for lost time!
I just did a water change last night...and the water was at the top last night, now I have to top off again.
As you can see, the tank looks alot better (or maybe only I can tell...haha). The hair algae isn't coming back on the walls of the tank like it was. I still haven't done anything to the rocks and am still contemplating cooking them in rubbermaid tubs.
I have increased my water changes to 10 gallons each week from 5g. I have added an aquaclear 70 that I turned into a refugium with rock rubble and chaeto. I have added more snails to my clean up crew and a lawnmower blenny who will have plenty of algae to eat.
Now for more pics!
Marvin the Lawnmower Blenny, my new fav fish
Chaeto...a little green for St. Patty's Day
Tiny Red Zoas...I call them Cherry Zoas
