After struggling with nitrates for many months and doing everything right I finally decided to take the bottled plunge and use Instant Ocean Natural Nitrate Reducer. It's suspended carbs, much like using the vodka method. Took my nitrates from 25 down to 2 in about 6-8 weeks now (not exactly sure on the time period).

Well... Thank you. I will take that into consideration. I have an open thread already started for this, so I will add this to the list of suggestions.

I gotta admit, I too have used the I/O nitrate reducer and believe it or not it actually works. lol I've only used it a few times but it can knock down those trates so you can get ahead of them with water changes.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Did you glue your live rocks together to get this formation or do they just rest securely on each other?

There are many types of worms that burrow in the live rock and send out sticky filaments to catch food.
