Sadly it is GHA, it looks like rapunzel threw up in it it's weird GHA though with green film on glass. Will send pics once I'm home. Had class and just picked up my reactor. Dude gave me a skimmer lecture... I told him about my plan, he agreed

It took me about a month or so. Emerald crabs helped. I also had lights on for 7 hrs too. Turned brown and next day was gone.

what do you have your lights running on now?
I have my anemone in here, worried it doesnt get enough light.

ok, so I added the phos reactor loaded with carbon and RowaPhos, and placed my under-rated remora HOB protein skimmer in there. we shall see what it does. Betcha it doesnt change a thing LOL

gee, I can tell you one thing though: this 55g sump is just NOT big enough for ANYTHING!!! everything is already crammed in there and the phos reactor is actually HOB LOL I just need a bigger tank so I can get a bigger sump

I don't really think the light is the issue. It may add to the problem BUT when i clean the glass it gets green again in 3 hrs... Dunno
The reactor is in, the skimmer is in... I'm sure it can't hurt I'm 2 weeks in so according to what I'm told I should give it another 2 weeks LOL

Hope u guys are right, cuz I'm tired of looking at this lushes forest... It's like the amazon river over here, so green and "healthy" looking

I know I will need a better skimmer sooner or later, but I hope I can postpone that as much to the future as possible...
Oh boy, u guys should see the construction under my tank, it's crazy hahahaha would love to have one of those next-door-fish-room things... But I think my boyfriend would kill me O____O
