Fish get pale when they are stressed. It is hiding as it is adjusting to the new tank. Assuming this 'floating' isn't laying on its side in the sandbed of course. Just give it time.

Fox faces are one of the worst shippers IME!
Hopefully he will come around.
Just give him peace and offer good algae based food tomorrow!

Thanks, he is swimming. Looking up, not sideways and not on the sand bed...
Obviously stressed...

Then just let him adjust. Leave the lights off until tomorrow.

Also true. Many fish do this while they sleep as well.

Looks like it was just my paranoia. When the lights come on he goes straight to life, swimming with his reflection. I've never seen that before.
Lots of algae building up though. Need to think through a CUC before I look at corals

Thanks, I'll be checking out the stock at the lfs tomorrow for some CUC but am considering ordering a package online. I am trying to figure out, the sump is blowing particles of some sort into the tank. I'm not sure what it could be other than salt or maybe overflow from the skimmer? It appears to have no impact on the parameters. I am only checking ammonia, nitrites, nitrates, pH, and alkalinity. Should I be checking other parameters at this point?

I'll be trying to figure out how a RODI works this weekend. That may be an adventure but soon to follow will be making my own salt water....

I went away for the weekend and an Algae bloom came in. Here is a before and after picture....I have been reading macro algae can be good while micro is a nuisance. Are any of the algae in the pictures beneficial? I think the red algae is beneficial. Here is a before and after picture. I know the hair needs to go but any other issues?
