It's like 1.5-2" frag. It's orange and green mixed. I typed in war coral and it looks exactly like it. I got it cheap because they had a buy two get one free so I paid $50 for three frags, so I just say $25 for one and 12.50 for other two.

Did my pwc today for all the tanks - running a couple days behind... Anyway, I think I accidentally sold myself on LED's for the biocube. When the lid was off I decided, just to see, to put the 4-bulb t5's over the cube, and MAN! What a difference! The zoos popped so nice, the ricordia lit up, trumpet and gap were glowing and the whole tank just looked awesome...

Soooo, I guess it'll be sooner than later when I get the LED's.

Thanks - ill most likely be doing the dimmable retrofit for the BC29 from RapidLED - my LED combo will be (10) royal blue, (4) blue, (7) cool white, (3) natural white.

Also using an RKL to control them.

Yup - you guessed it... Cyanobacteria! At first I thought it was spots of coralline on the rocks, but after I came home from vacation this weekend, I quickly realized it was not...

Doing a PWC in the morning so I'll try to remove what I can. I've got cyano, hair, brown, and green algae growing not to mention the chaeto and red macros, which I might add are growing fast and looking great.

I'm just an algae factory with a Wartskin on the side.

I've been batteling some myself. Unfortunately- with low flow it's a risk I guess. I don't know how people with seahorse tanks can handle this. Lol.

That's exactly it too. I put in the tunze nano PH at 425gph, and the whole tank got upset, not to mention the angler had to bed down in a bunker. I tried every possible angle too.

So now I just have my return glow and still the angler struggles to swim around. He looks like a rock climber most of the time, clawing up the rocks.

I do have one very low flow pump in my tank right now as a make shift power head. I turn it off at night as that is when my guy seems to be the most active. He swims around more. I've been trying to slowly adjust it so that it on more and more at night so he comes out during the day instead. Even still though I am wiping the glass every other day. My guy likes to hand out on the roof of the caves I have made so I really have to look for him as he is a master of disguise. My hermits help some. But I am afraid this will be a battle that lasts forever. Lol. I do plan on adding more macro to see if that helps. My only other option might be more frequent water changes. Maybe a gallon every other day?
