I think purple up, in the end and honestly, isn't worth it. I had a bottle I bought last winter that I just finished up with a few weeks ago. I never noticed any increased growth of coralline while using it. I do however think that it's pretty useful when aiming your powerheads. It makes the water milky and you can see the flow of the water.

Yep, all levels are good. I've had that frag since the first tank I had, it was in my 29g LOL. It's since moved tot he 55g and now finally to this tank. It's been growing so well, love it!

I'm so excited! I just got my bristleworm trap today and I just caught my first one! he was about 6 inches or so all stretched out and a real fat one too. Best $9 I ever spent. i still have to do every tank too, for some reason they are rampant in my setups. dirty little worms....

I've got it in there now, lol, I keep checking every few mintues. I'm so lame. It was so thrilling to get one of the nastiest ones out though. I used minimal live rock in this tank too, no idea where they all came from. Right now I'm de worming the 20g rimless, it has more than the 125g does. LOL

Thanks for always reading, I appreciate it.

Good luck with your "get rid of the bristleworms adventure"! I'm glad the trap works, there is nothing worse than buying something and not having it work!

Just sat down after dumping another one. It's a cheezy little device but yeah, it does work. 2 so far and dozens to go. lol Just refilled the bait section and hopeful to get some more of them before I go to bed. I'm probably getting new corals tomorrow at the frag meet so I totally need to redo the 20g and 125g rock before I put more coral in. So much to do!
