You probably have a local reef club near you. What town do you live in?

just google "Phoenix Arizona Reef Club". I did and found the Arizona Fish and Reef Aquarium Group. I don't know if they are still going , but it's a start.

Thanks KC. I currently have chaeto in the refugium. Is there any reason I should put another macro or mangroves in the fuge. Mangroves would be cool but I don't have much room.

X I live in So. Cal. I'll look into reef clubs in my area thanks.

After I posted I noticed you had some cheato in there, I have the worst luck with cheato not growing. I was told I needed to add magnesium to help with it's growth. Everything else grows like wildfire.

Thought I'd post my latest news...

BAD:

McCosker's wrasse never did show back up after went missing a couple weeks ago.
Still haven't been able to ID the 1/8" white dots that are multiplying and taking over the glass.
Woke up this morning to find my clam had become crab food - no clue how / why he died.
Blastomussa didn't pull through even moving to a lower light situation.

GOOD:

Everyone else appears to be thriving. My SPS corals are growing at an insane rate. The Monti plate has doubled since purchase and is now 12" across.
All other corals seem fantastic.
Got my two ric's on their new rubble - CorAffix worked well.
Within the month, if the universe lines up, I will have a skimmer, canopy, new sump design, and a pump for water changes.
Nitrates have been staying at 5ppm which is fantastic in my book.

Here are some pics of the white dot plague (which is not pyramid snails), and the ric's on their new spot:

I get the white dots too. Like crazy. I just scrape em off. I have no idea what they are. Just know they are annoying to see

I would leave them on the back pane. What are they hurting? I don't know what they are yet, but i'm guessing Q-tip sponges?

In my tank those white dots turn into coralline. First a light green then they morph over to purple after a few weeks. I have thousands of those darn dots! LOL

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

I'll leave em alone and see what happens. The only thing I really don't like is when I scrape them from the front glass, it leaves a white outline of where it was and it's really hard to remove.
