My YWG came out for a photo op which is insanely rare for him. He's such a shy fish! Since I changed the lights and powerheads he's been out and about a lot more.



On a side note, the quiet drives seem to move a lot more water! Plus they are crazy quiet which is wonderful

Move more water? That is almost scary...but then again, I do have 2 mp40 in my 55...so more water might be a good thing.

I guess the EcoSmart drives were rated at 3200 gph and the new QuietDrives are rated at 4500 gph. I can't turn mine above 60% without blowing sand everywhere.

That's great. I didn't know that bit, only the rumors of the quiet drives being stronger. It's a good idea as some were skeptical of the product as them only being 'quieter'.

They absolutely are! I'll venture out and say that the EcoTech stuff I've gotten recently is some of the best equipment I've put on my tank.

My male clownfish died last night. I'm super bummed cause he was one of my favorite fish :-( a couple of days ago my wife noticed he was lethargic and just staying in the back corner of the tank which was unusual for him. He started to get worse, then I found him laying on the sand gasping. He didn't last more than a few hours after that. None of the other fish are having any sort of problems and he didn't have any physical signs of trauma or illness. I'm guessing there might have been an intestinal blockage of some sort since I've seen him recently eat some NLS pellets off the sand bed, but... that's just a guess.

To top it off, I've been fighting this scourge type of brown algae and the LFS diagnosed it as dinoflagellates today. Ugh...

Yeah I was pretty upset about it. He was an awesome little fish and had TONS of personality. The female keeps swimming back to where they would sleep too, I'm guessing she's looking for him. I'll get another one after everything with the tank settles down and gets back to normal.

On a good note it seems like the Dinos are a little less than they were yesterday. They've come off of part of my zoa colony thankfully.
