Well cool thanks! i've seen corallimorphs once before and they were some of the most beautiful things i've ever seen. And i figured i would help it grow. But i guess that means there wasn't enough calcium in the water XD since i left the LR in there for about 1 month before actually put a fish in.

I was informed only to feed it twice to three times a week. But the dottyback is swimming happily in the currents and has an unsatiable appitite. He goes wild when food is dropped in the aquarium. And btw i did get some better lighting sorry not posting it. I recieved a t5 strip and converted mine to t5 with the parts from it. So its not the lighting. I did put Kent marines Purple Tech in the aquarium for about a week up until i got the anemonie. Could that have been the Perc's COD or the anemonie's "Hidding" skills. Plus i placed the anemonie as high up and as in as much water flow as i possibly could but it scooted to the bottom and under the rocks within minutes?
Anemone's don't eat phyto plankton and I think purple up or like problems are a waste of money. You don't have anything in your tank to use higher calcium or alk. that a good PWC wouldn't correct. Never add anything to your tank that you don't have a kit to test for.

PWC = Partial Water Change
CUC = Clean Up Crew

Well i woke up this morning to find green spider web algea i guess. Here and there on the live rock is some green patches. But for most part everything is on the substrate.

If you think you've finished cycling, ZERO ammonia is the only acceptable reading. "A little" ammonia is not good after the cycling is supposedly completed.

Oh no. i just have some problems with the algea. my pH is 8.3-8.4 ammonia, nitrite and nitrate are all 0ppm. I did a water change yesterday and hooked my protien skimmer up with a more powerfull PH and but i guess i'll have to wait and see if anything changes with the algea. if not then its up to a cleanup crew.

How old is your setup and what do you have in it now?

Well it is about 6 months old. and fish have been in it almost 1 month. I have 1 anemone, and 1 Domino Damsel. Now since the bigger PH on the protien skimmer and after changing the flow of my PH's the algea doesn't seem to be spreading. but its still there, a giant blob in the center of the aquarium, and green spots over some the LR. I'll be able to get some pictures tomorrow or the day after.
