There will be more LR added, but does anyone have any other suggestions? The current is awesome, swirls the whole tank. The diatom is slowly going away. My whole tank use to be red brown, about crushed me. Then I read up on some other threads and learned it's part of the cycle... Thanks to everyone. Ur advice has been priceless... Please keep it coming.

Where is the best website to get LR. The lfs doesn't really have much of a selection.

Since you have some live rock already I would put in base rock for the resr. It's sooo much cheaper and easier. Here's where i get mine. Free shipping on over 30lbs i believe.

ReefCleaners.org | Clean Up Crews and Macro Algae - Rock

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

LFS gave me this and said use it everyday. Is this a good or bad idea? Haven't gotten a tester for calcium, but was told I didn't need it, add this everyday and the soft corals I have will thrive... Need some advice.

I don't think youre at the point where you need to dose anything. And a good rule of thumb is to never dose anything you aren't testing for. Corals will be fine with water changes every week.
