Just so you know, people have had success with Emerald Crabs eating Bubble Algae, so if it begins to become a problem you could look into them.

I already have one emerald crab but we'll see how it goes. So far its just one tiny bubble, probably barely a centimeter if that

Hi, great to see your having coral growth! Another coral i'd suggest is xenia. Really hardy and pretty simple to keep.

Ps. I have a duncan that i LOVE. started out with 1 head..then over the next several days of keeping it i saw 2 more pop outta the sides. Then, i went through some salinity problems where it closed up for awhile, and when i got it all fixed, i saw ANOTHER head, and the main head is starting to split! I suggestthis coral, really beautiful

That's awesome! I'll definitely keep an eye out for one at the store

Here's a little update.
I've been pretty busy lately dealing with my highschool graduation and getting a new job so I hadn't done a water change in a couple weeks and hadn't been running carbon and now I have some clumps of hair algae on the sand bed and base of a couple rocks. But now that its summer im back concentrating on my tank. Yesterday I got some chemi pure elite and did a water change and got all my levels back to normal. My corals are all doing great except my zoas seem to be staying closed a lot. Coraline algae is everywhere! Some rocks are almost completely covered so I'm excited about that.

Once I get a decent job I think I want to start setting up a much larger tank (50-125g) because I'll have the money to and I've always wanted a large tank. Also a small tank is kind of a pain with temp swings and all. I'd like something that can stay pretty constant and I can do some cool rockwork and have a much better selection of livestock. It would be a nice summer project. I'll keep an eye out for good deals on tanks

I would....it's from Hawaii man!! As long as you don't think there could be any die-off, it would be fine. If you think there could be some die-off, cure it in a separate container first.

It looks like its been dry for a while though. I think I'll let it dry out in the sun for a couple days just to make sure
