Good job on the rock work. I think i would stand 1 of those rocks almost straight up since you have alot of skinny tall rocks though.

That looks like quality base rock you got out of the box. Where was that ordered from? By the way, the pepermint shrimp typically will not eat big aiptasia(glass anemone) you will probably have to kill the big ones yourself and then the pep shirmp can keep them from coming back by eating all the small ones. 8-pep shrimp is more than enough for your tank.

rocks from here
ReefCleaners.org | Clean Up Crews and Macro Algae - Rock/Mud

I believe all the aiptasia is gone (at least the one that I saw before.)
I kept 2 peps in my refugium.
man those shrimps n hermits r smart and when I throw food into the tank, all of the sudden, they will come out from all direction to the food. haha

alrite here's some picture of the new green star polyps
see where they are?? and the water have clear out.

there they are, right in the middle of the tank.
mangroves have moved back to the refugium, since there are diatom everywhere in the refugium, so hopefully the mongroves will control them a little bit.

some little update and questions for you guys

update:
-stand infront of my tank for an hour and finally caught 1 peppermint and put in back to my refugium...(omg they r super smart...and jump fast)
-adding 9more nassarius snails from refugium to the DT.
-green star polyps are getting better.

questions:
this morning I saw one of my peppermint caught a small bristol warm, they r like killing all the good things for me......what is going on OoO?
my calcium is way to high, it has been up to 560~580 after I add the base rock. will that harm my corals and other inverts?
