I run carbon on occassion, but not constantly, its expensive and only works for a few weeks at most anyways. Since you have live rock I would stay away from the ceramic rings, the extra surface bacteria isnt really needed in my opinion.
Do you have a mag flaot? That is the easiest way to get rid of the algae on the glass.

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

I do not have a magnet, I see some people using one but never looked into it. Am i too early to have a mini CUC ( few snails) to keep the algae i do have down.

Wanted to ask how your blennys act towards other tank mates?

Finished up with a big WC yesterday and curious how the test will look today when im out of work. I did a nitrate test last night before bed and had lighter orange color i believe its between 10 and 20 ppm.... Nitrite and ammonia were bother zero still so looking good. Cant believe long wait is just about over for my cycle ha never thought the day would come

Even though you are now cycled and ready for livestock ,
Remember to take it slow ,
Don't add too much too fast .

The only blenny I have had that gave anyone any trouble is my barnacle blenny and a red lipped blenny. The barnacle is the king of the tank he is in and the red lipped lasted about 2 days before him picking on super big fish finally got him eaten.
