Yea I have an overflow. I just need to hook everything up tonight.
Leather needs to go higher? It's mid way up in tank now. I didn't think they needed that much light ?

Looks like some kind of finger or tree coral.

Yeah he's got sps intensity light. I bet the coral was shocked when it was introduced to your system. It just needs time to get used to the intense lighting. That's my guess on what's wrongz

I agree... Try putting closer to bottom, let it stay there for a week or so, and move it up a lil if it's not thriving.

I know I'm full of questions! . I'm just excited learning bout all this stuff. One problem I had when I got the tank is it was very dirty. I think everything - the rock and tank, clean up pretty well. Only issue I have is the corners where it's siliconed have a little green algea. I've tried tooth brush and other brushes but can't fully remove it. Anyone have any suggestions? Can I use a razor blade or would I take chance of possible causing a leak ?

No razor bales by silicone!!!! Use a bug remover sponge for cars.. That works well.
