The tank is doing okay, I am still fighting the cyano but I have some corals that are growing well. The tank is almost a year old and the only coraline algae is growing in the j tube. I think that the rodi unit I bought is not helping I went back to the water from the vending machine out side of albertsons. When that's all I was using I had no algae. Thank you for asking I didn't think anyone was interested in my system.

So I can't get an upgrade out of my head. I am planning on spending under $4000 and want a 125 or 180. I plan on getting the tank used from Craigslist and all other equipment new. I talking lights sand skimmer powerheads rock pumps. I am counting my chickens before they hatch. The plan will not happen till mid march I just need to figure out the stand. I want to do a DIY but not sure about the look. I'm thinking about finding someone that does cabinets to wrap it. Does anyone have any experience with doing this?

I don't but I looked up building a stand and it seemed real easy. Good luck I'm sure you can figure it out!

My skimmer is not working and having some problems. Water running thru and the air OS not plugged so why no bubbles?

About two weeks ago I noticed that my engineer goby had a wound on the left side of his face and his eye was missing. Not long after that it was all healed up and the color was back but still no eye. Today when he came out to eat the other side of his head is clearly wounded looks like a bite was taken out of him.

Thats not good anyway to separate them for a while? Take out the pink spot for a while? Add him in a week or so? After rearranging a few rocks. I heard that it tricks them into thinking it's a new tank and they'll be less aggressive cause they're the "new guy"
