It's called a sour-apple birds nest.

That's an old pic. It's about the size of half of a volleyball now. It sticks out of the water in the 54.

This is the 2nd one I've bought for this tank - I tried training and it worked, but I work 2nd shift so when I get home at 1:00am they are bright and ready. It's kinda cool to just feed them then.

Here is the new coral in the tank. I'm planning to hang it upside-down in the cave, but this was initial placement until I train it to eat.

On the top left of the FTS you can see the birdsnest frag.

I've been battling algae for some time now and this week the macro algae the I had in the tank must've went sexual or something. It got all bubbly and now every surface in my tank including corals are covered in bubbles and purple / red stuff. I went to town today and removed 95% and did a water change. My chaeto grows like mad too.

My biggest problem for causing algae is me. I added in the damsels for my angler to eat and he's picky, so now I have (4) assorted damsels in the tank along with the angler. I've gotta feed them, feed him, and I was adding phyto feast for a while. I read another article about phyto just being a bottle of phosphates and not adding much to the tank. The only things that benefit are the coco worm and my clam in the other tank. I also found that dosing as directed is WAAAYY too much. I've now been told (2) drops, 3x per week is enough to support my biocube. I was dosing 2 teaspoons 3x / week.

I'm doing my best to net the damsels to return them for store credit, but they are so fast it's crazy. They don't trust the net.

In the meantime I am switching to daily (1) gallon water changes opposed to weekly 5-7 gallon changes. I read an article about the benefits of maintaining trace elements like mg, cal, alk by doing daily changes.

Ill keep posted.
