You will go through periods of time when the population reaches high levels but they will sort it all out in probably a few days or weeks. i get mass amounts of them on my glass every couple of months.

Like said above, fish like to eat them and they help complete the life cycle of your tank.

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

Your tank has been up and running for two years and that is the original rock?

My tank has been up for over a year and my rocks are no where near covered in coralline, IMO that has nothing to do with the lights.

You can't convince me lighting doesn't make A difference.Granted I have MH but here are pictures of my tank in March and now.I have Coraline spreading all over the base rock already.

BTW I said spreading.Look at the attached closeup pictures and if you don!t see the splotches of Coraline growing than apparently you don't recognize it when you see it.disregard the third picture it was from two months ago .
