I've finally turned the light off in the fuge for the past 2 days. Got a 5g HOB
with small pieces of tonga, caluerpra (sp??), and the usual pod population. The caluerpa (try this again) is growing fast too. Had 8 hrs of lighting on it. Had to run the lights with the main instead of opposite since the light sits above the main and bleeds into it heavy.
Had the fuge up for about a couple of months. Red slime all over the surface water in it and creeping into my tank now.
What can I do? Is there a certain water test I should've done before I asked for help? Haven't checked phosphates recently. All my tattle tale coral ain't talkin' and they're doing fine.
