Well, it has been a couple days since my last post... I was looking at the tank last night, and it appears I have some green... algae growing on the rocks and on the sand. Its hairy. Im guessing this is not the type I want in there, so.. I am going to cut back on the feedings and do a large water change this weekend (probably around 20 gallons or so). I did tests today on the water, and I am still at 0 ammonia and nitrite. I was at 20 nitrates.
I think the amount I am feeding is too much. I feed 1 block of frozen food every other day to the 7 fish in the aquarium. I'll try doing that block in half and doing it then.
My Pulsing Xenia and candy canes are really taking off. The kryptonite candy cane has split into 3 additional heads in the 6 weeks or so I have had it. The other candy cane has added another head. in the week Ive had it, and the pulsing xenia has doubled in size, and attached to the rubble rock I put it on in the cup in the week I have had it.
I also got my RO
filter setup in a perm station, so I dont have to move stuff around our washer/dryer to make water anymore. I have a dual TDS
meter on the way along with a refractometer which should be here early next week.
I also found a hitchhiker in the other live rock I got from the Ike evacuee tank. Its some type of hermit crab (not like the others I have), so I put him in the refuge for now.
I am now putting about $200/month away for an aquarium controller, and a webcam for the tank. That should get me a nice Aquacontroller 3 that I could end up monitoring both tanks with, and a way to put up live pretty pictures
