Nothing yet, least that I can tell. I do have algae that grows right along the sandbed edge along the glass, annoys me to death! I have to scrape it with a razor to get it off. Is that normal? Or is it the PFS?

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

Thanks Leo, it's been driving me crazy LOL. I have it in the cube too, right at the sand line. Guess I'll keep scraping.

try not to disturb it to much, or you'll risk trapping junk under the sand

I should still remove it though right? I try to be as gentle as I can be to avoid mucking up the sand.....but it really looks awful and drives me crazy lol
