You can soak them in vinegar and rinse them well. The vinegar breaks down the calcium that forms on the heads and can throw their balance off.

I clean mine every waterchange with water I pull out of the tank and scrub them with a bottle brush I bought

Staying up on it let's you get the incrustations off while still soft. I am lazy, so by the time I get to it, they are like concrete. Vinegar soak, then the bottle brush for all the lazy reefers out there.

I've only had PH's for a couple weeks, so there isn't too much on them yet.

Tank is doing much better... I'm still weary about adding anything (fish / corals) for a bit, just to make sure that whatever was killing the fish isn't going to anymore. It's now been over a week I believe since the last death and previously they were within a day or two of each other, so I'm hoping it ran its course.

At this point, I'm getting ready for the BRS group buy, and I'm looking to upgrade my sump, and possibly my lights.

After that, it'll be around two weeks, and I'll probably start with adding some more corals - looking at GSP's, Pom pom xenia, toadstool leather, etc - all softies and lps. Once I get a few more of them, I'll probably start with adding the pair of B/W clowns that I've been wanting.

I know I will get another Flame Angel, but I'm second guessing the Royal Gramma. It was pretty, but not much of a swimmer, and I'd really like to get an active swimmer if possible with a nice bright coloring. We'll see when the time comes.

On a side note: What kinds of foods do you or are you planning to use. A few keep talking about NLS foods, and I know BRS does sell them too, but I just want to make sure that I'm giving a good variety.

Currently I do, Formula II flakes, Frozen Mysis, and Rod's seaweed sheets. I think I'll add NLS pellets so my Goby has more of a variety too, as he only eats the Mysis.

I feed NLS flakes and pellets to all my tanks as well as a solid selection fo frozen cube type foods. I also put out seaweed and algae sheets as well for the grazers.

I can for sure see a difference in my FW fish since switching over to the NLS, they are growing quicker and the colors are more pronounced.

Top of the line food for sure, I plan on ordering more through the BRS buy.

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