Mine just started after 4 years of having my tank set up. I know sounds strange, but since I am broke, I decided about 6 months ago to try to get more color in my tank by getting some coralline to grow on the rock and walls (FOWLR
). What has finally worked for me is I have dialed in my skimmer with a boost from an additional air pump, changed out the bulbs on my double strip (Just 80 watts over a 75 gal
), stepped up the water changes to every week using reef crystals. It is stating to get real crusty on the back of the tank and I see white paint flecks on the back as well. I am really excited because I have never had any luck with getting coralline to grow in 15 years.
