The 90g has always been one of my favorites! Of course the 180g (old 125g) too! Wrasses are wonderful! Many, many colors. It's too bad the Flame Wrasses are so pricey, their colors are amazing. But really any of them are nice. I remember when I started to see my Sixline's slime coating in the morning as he woke up. I wonder if all wrasses do that...I only actually noticed it back in 2011 when he got moved to the 55g.

Not sure about a slime coating on any of my wrasses. the red coris sleeps under the sand and the lunar jams himself into the rockwork. Weird fish right there. lol The sizline disappears, not sure where he sleeps.

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

Carey, I was having a nice little discussion with a guy from Ecotech and thought I would tell you the one bit that stuck out as a huge bit, even on my end. With the height above the water line being 8-10 inches for the Radions, they recommend running them at 50-60% intensity, depending on what coral you are keeping. I think this might have been a big part in the issues you were running into.

I was going with 40% but even with that I have burned several of my corals. i am now down to 20% for about 7 hours a day. The algae has kinda stopped growing it seems, lol, just have some of the green fuzzy stuff left. The cyano took 2-3 days with the chemiclean to go away but thats gone as well. I did like a 50% water change the other day and all parameters are at 0. So hopefully the last bit of algae will burn itself out.

I am still soo confused by the radion adn its programming. I need to sit down and watch some youtube videos I guess. I can get the light exactly like I want it, but only in the third tab, where you play with the light to test out what you like. Not sure how to get that info into the first tab whre the schedule is. Not sure that made much sense, lol, maybe if you have a radion....

Third tab? They must have done some fiddling with the software since the last time I used it. I don't use it anymore since I have the reeflink hooked up.

Yeah there are three tabs, first one has the set points, the second one is for stuff i dont need to know about liek linking more than one radion, and the third lets you tinker with the lighting while its running.

I have been thinking of getting the reeflink, just $200 is alot. lol The vortechs arent even online yet are they with the reeflink?

I can control both radions and vortechs from my phone through the reeflink, but not through the webpage. Though, as it stands, my phone app isn't launching correctly. This is most likely an issue with my phone than the app though. Just haven't sat down to fiddle with it with a million other things to do.
