yeah pretty much just green hair algae with a little bit of bubble algae. i had some slime algae but it seems to be clearing up. theres also probably 20 or so aiptasia in there.
yes i definitely need someone to throw ideas off of. i can't decide what to do. i tend to travel at least once a month so i was waiting till i had time to be home long enough to do everything. i fractured my arm last week so ill be home and have the time now but having a cast on makes doing things difficult lol
I could get 80lbs of sand from reef rocks for 30 so that wouldn't be a big deal.
i guess what i'm not sure on is if i move livestock and liverock to a holding tank. get the main tank all clean with new sand and the new baserock i ordered how i should go about adding the rest of the rock and livestock back? if i moved all the liverock back in after cleaning and treating it would the hob
filter be enough filtration to keep the holding tank going since i'm assuming the main tank will have at least a mini cycle which would keep me from moving the liverock and livestock back at the same time.
another thing i'm worried about is having food for everyone while in holding and after. my blenny is always munching on the hair algae along with the snails and emerald.
also im going to look at a 24 gallon aquapod tomorrow. it comes with the tank, stand, sand, and 30lbs of live rock. seller says that there isn't a scratch on the glass hopefully he isn't lying. all that for 140 obo. good price? if i end up with that i could use it for holding if that would be better than the 29 with the ac50.
sorry for such a long post. not sure if all of that made sense. i've got so many ideas going through my head its getting hard to put things together lol
heres a pic of the tank as of about 5 mins ago.
