Im paying 5.00 /# here in Louisiana. Is the coralline algae the purple stuff or what? I have been buying a little LR from lfs and from petco and the stuff from lfs is way better. It's way lighter and has good color. Can I use like a piece of coral skeleton from an old piece of brain coral from the beach. It's fossilized probably. I am trading a couple snake hides for it tomorrow. just want to know if it will hurt the water and can the BB thrive in it?

Awesome I got a lot and I think it's spreading. I also have this funny looking brown algae that looks kinda like moss. It's trying to cover everything, but my hermit crab is giving it a run for it's money. I do need a better CUC and more LR.

Been a month and a week and still no cycle. Has anyone ever skipped a cycle before? Just looking for feedback. My Zoa coral is doing great and a piece fell off and started growing somewheres else. So far the only things that died were a big blue leg hermit crab, domino damsel, and a bumble bee snail that I found later to be brackish. Has anyone else had an experience where their sw tank didn't cycle?

This is the piece that sprouted from between two rocks. I am going to leave it there for a while and see how big it gets but there were only two when it fell off and now there are three. I have not
