New corals!!

My giant cup shroom ate my cleaner shrimp, poor little guy. My tank is finally looking like a reef after a year and a half. I also got a yellow tang, not too big, maybe 2 inches. He was really shy for a few days, but now he's been coming out. I felt bad for a powder blue I saw at a LFS today. They keep it in a small tank with no hiding places. I would have got one, but I only have a 55.

DSB, LR, Aqua-c remora skimmer, IO salt mix, distilled water. I had a emperor 400 on there with carbon only, but my tank does better since I took it off. I am now fighting ich, because my yellow tang had it when I put him in. My black sebae and black occelaris clowns got it, now there in a 10 gal QT with coppersafe. I just put them in there last night but they are already looking good. Does anyone have any advice when using coppersafe?

Got the carbon off the QT tank too? And a copper test kit?

How can your tank look better without the carbon in there?

Carbon is meant to make the water better, not worse :p Unless you were overdosing?

Get a UV sterilizer. It will help kill most parasites ,ich..in your tank.

Maybe I wasn't changing the carbon enough. But since I took the carbon out, no more brown hair algae is growing on my LR. That was the only change I made and it worked.
