Nice frags. Your tank is looking great. I love frag swaps and broke some myself by trying to wedge them in but they survived

Thanks Daniel! I was a little mortified by the frags breaking. :/ even more mortified when I woke up to no acans. :/ got to build a rack to place my sensitive frags in. My butterfly fish ate the acans and went to town on the existing zoas I had in the tank. My bf loves the butterfly fish (he bought it for me) but I told him its time we swapped him out. He got sensitive. So rack it is for now. Maybe in the future I can swap him out for an acan!! Hahaha.

Doesn't look to appealing with that egg crate inside but I had to keep my zoas and acans safe. Most of the acans were destroyed... But there's some life left! I'm crossing my fingers they will be ok.

Camel shrimp... I'm not sure if it has blue eyes or not. But from the picture it looks like it. He hardly comes out. He's always hiding in the rocks... So I finally got a good picture of him!

Can someone help me on what type of cuc to get? I'm noticing green algae on my rock. Didn't notice until today when I was cleaning the diatoms off the front of the tank. I only have 8 narcissus snails in there. My params are ok. The PH is a bit on the low side and my phosphates are around .08ppm... I have a phosphate reactor but it doesn't seem to do the trick. So I think my lfs was either mixing his water with tap. Started using an other lFS that I know uses RO to mix their water now... Hopefully it slowly lowers it. I do about 15% water changes every week. Should I increase the water changes and scrub the heck out of the rock? Can I do this without harming the bb on the LR? How do I remove the rock when I have my corals glued to them? Thanks for your help guys/gals!
