On a side note, I find myself repositioning half my corals when I put a new piece in. Anyone else run into this?

Low bioload is the cause of the wet skimmate IMO. I get the same thing in my tank and all I have is 2 clowns, a YWG, and a bunch of corals in a 120g. I've never produced anything more than super wet tea colored skimmate.


On a side note, I am now insanely envious of Greg's euphyllia garden.

Thank you! And glad I'm not the only one with tea colored skimmate...

I think almost everyone does thins to some degree when they put a new frag in. I do it quite a bit as well. God forbid I get a few frags in the same day...then it's a whole tank redesign lol.

I would just note that repositioning them may work against you as they acclimate to light and flow patterns. Might slow down the corals propagation. Also remember they do grow, so leave reasonable space between them as at some point they become difficult to move at all.

FTS... Sorry about the pic quality and complete lack of color. My phone doesn't take the best pics. Looks a lot different in person.

Looks awesome under the blues. I'll try to snap a pic with the blues very dim and see if I can capture some color. All 3 of those are different colors (peach/blue/green)... I'm going to add some more and fill that corner in the front of the tank once I can get some money together and visit Coral Frank. He's this dude who has a 180 display plumbed into (4) 40 breeders in his basement and sells all sorts of crazy pieces... Good prices too.

I want to stuff a ball of some sort of macro, either caulerpa or chaeto, in my sump. Any places online to order these from? I remember seeing macro in a bottle somewhere just don't remember where...
