Thumbs up Thank you

Your start up is magnificent, your levels are perfect, and your cyano is pretty normal. I wouldn't suggest syphoning all at one time, and this is only because I stalled my cycle at the phosphate stage (with cyano starting) because I removed too much at one time and didn't have the beneficial bacteria that was covering the cyano anymore. I know I'll probably get snobbed or trolled for this, but if you get another decent sized aquacultured live rock and chip it into medium sized rocks and leech them you may get some of your CUC for free and live rock has an amazing ability to filter your water.

RODI water..... I actually have about five pieces of dry rock that are all small pieces maybe a pound a piece with one maybe three pounds that were taken over by hair algae. I bleached them. Would it be good or bad to add them to the cyano spot. That is where they were previously.

It really wouldn't matter as long as you added flow to the location cause if you didn't it will spread regardless

By looking at my pictures, should I place my circulation pump on the opposite side of my other power heads?

You can take out and lightly clean off if you want but put it back

I have a maxi jet 1200 marine land brand head/circulation pump that I originally was using to mix my salt water. I configured it to use as a power head and put it in my tank but it seems to be extremely powerful. Is it too much? The specs aero as follows: 295 max GPS in power head mode and 1300 max in circulation. Any suggestions?

Also I have been told that the specific coral that I have isn't very popular because it is known for taking over the tank. Any way to contain it if I put it on a rock in an empty sand space or will it still spread?
