This is the 2nd one I have had we took the first one out thinking that he was killing fish. They both danced along the glass in the early morning.

I agree, Bubble Algae or no Bubble Algae, they are fun to observe. I have seen mine do the dance before too.

Just a photo of my sump after moving my skimmer to the outside and adding the filter sock. I had to change some of the plumbing to make it work. I also added new floss to all of the baffels. I forgot the photo, here it comes.

Will 4 weeks without fish in the tank be long enough to kill off ich?

I believe it's recommended 6-8 weeks of a fallow tank to be sure. :-(

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

After talking about emerald crabs and bubble algae I have now noticed that I have not seen the one I had in about a month. I am thinking that he is gone. I am thinking that this my be the reason I have all of the algae that I am seeing. Who knows he may have died and was taking care of it leading up to this?
