lols.

on the aptasia front, I have one big one that I covered with Kalk paste. Emptied and moved the tank. Lost most of my coral and pow there he is poking out from under the GSP where he lives. Now I have a rock that looks like it has dozens of little ones making the side of the rock all hairy.

UPDATE TIME!
good and bad things.. the 3 aptasia that i dosed with aptasia x are back.. smaller and looking unwell.. but growing.. so when they get their fingers back and i can locate their disc's ill dose em again.

Got lots of base rock.. tank looks great.. also got a wavemaker/powerhead and getting good movement thru the body of water now..

Digital thermometer is scary.. i can see a 2 degree celsius movemet througout the day.. so should i aim for 24degrees to 26 or 23-25 degrees C????

(just remembered your mostly american... so
24 = 75.2 F
25 = 77
26 = 78.8
There you go.. oh and im running a 32 ish Gal tank with about 13 lb live rock and 22lb base rock and about 18lb of "coral sand")

Brown stuff growing on the glass.. looks like mould.. going to buy glass scraper/cleaner tomorrow..

once again.. CRIKEY! all this help.. its JUST what we need! thanks heaps "y'all"

As far as the Aiptasia, you should feed it to them slowly and you will get better luck. If you are keeping tropical animals you should shoot of a min. of 79 degrees and a max of 82 degrees.
The brown algae growing on your glass and sand are "Diatoms" and will go away as fast as they came. Get a clean up crew (CUC) to help you get through this faze of the cycle.

Im assuming a clean up crew is a group of animals that eat mess?

if so .. can i walk into my LFS and ask for a "clean up crew"

and im going to have to scrape it for now.. as im still about 2 weeks away from any form of livestock.. (except for the strange and wonderful things im finding on my live rock)

and ill give the aptasia another slower feed and see how that goes.

yeah.. the LFS was helpful there.. but didnt have anything that i was really interested in.. (huge pointy snails, hermits.. but didnt mention starfish)

got to do another aptasia x dose and then a water test and see how things are going.
