Just an update if anyone is still tagging along.

Both my O Clowns and the Royal Gama are all doing well and seem to be very healthy as are all the corals.

The only issue I have had is some green hair algae on a few pieces of LR. Tonight I modded a AC HOB to use as a temporary fuge to aid in nutrient export. I have also cut back on feedings, light time, and have been doing frequent PWC's.

Tonight I also discovered the mag float. What a difference. It looks like a REAL reef tank now!

I think I got what Speakerman is saying, but it only took about 15 times reading it to do so.

Congrats on your "dots", and your tank, it's lloking great. What are your light cycles, and feeding cycles?

Keep the pics coming

I am running the lights 10 hrs a day. I am feeding Omega One Pellets every other day and mysis once a week.

I think it is amazing when I feed the mysis so I look forward to it. Every nassarius comes out of the sand, the peppermints, hermits shoot right out, the sea serpant comes out, and my fish go crazy. I really think that none gets wasted. I was originaly feefing Mysis every other day until I realized this was to much.

Here is a tank shot to show how clean my mag-float got the glass, and a shot of my serpant out for lunch as well as a pic of the xenia I got for free. I know some people do not care for xenia but I think the way it moves is very peaceful.

Another first happened for me that I thought was cool today. That brown polyp in the pic, well I looked on the rock directly underneath and there was a tiny single brown polyp.

What a week, first coraline spots on glass, clown hosting zoo, and first runner polyp!

EDIT: If you look in the shady area under the brown polyp frag, you can see a tiny single polyp. I can't believe this all is happening so fast! (And I am working on the HA!)
