When my coralline grows in my tanks it takes on the form of little white circles first and then gradually changes to purple or red or green. Are they hard little circles?

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

kk so its all in the tank. shut down the pumps and emptied the pods. hopefully the live ones find homes before i get the pumps running again and they dont find themselves getting sucked into my skimmer.

thought i would have gotten alot more macro than i did. but its in there. hope the bulb i got is the right one.

my order was a day late so i will get to see how an extra day in a bag affects everything.

a lot of hopes in this post.

Just out of curiosity- are you adding your copepods to your refugium? Or your display? I was wondering the other day about this. And whether it's best to add phytoplankton to the main tank or refugium. Not sure of the benefits I guess to adding it to the refugium so that the population could grow.

i added them to the dt. i figured thats where i wanted most of them to be soooo. ive read phytoplankton can go to the dt too. that way anything that eats it can take it from the water column. i have not found where it propagates enough to just add and forget it. you can culture it and feed as needed though. i guess if i was a smart man i would grow both and feed my tank with them.
