Tank is doing well. Need to prep for water change on Sunday.

Also seeing some GSA on the heater and glass. Indefinitely related to my lighting.

Lesson learned, tank doesn't not need more light yet.

If it cyano, you may need some more flow in the area is popping up if possible. I'll get small areas of out on the still parts of my sand bed every now and again. It's red though.

I would try raising it slowly. Maybe 5% a week and keep an eye on everything. You may also want to try keeping the actinics a little higher than the whites to see if you like the look of it better. I prefer more blues to whites, but its about your preference.

Thanks Paul I do like actinics my camera just doesn't

I've moved to another thread and did a mash up like TMRC of all my threads into one.

Since all of you guys are on here though I'll ask on here.

I got a bubble anemone a few days ago. Great news is my clown started hosting this morning!

But I was told I need to feed my Nem with seafood from the grocery store. Being experts.. What do you guys think? Should I feet it? How often?
