I hope the new goby doesn't bury your corals! Picture?

No interest out of him in terms of burying the corals. He has picked a rock and already moved a ton of sand. That being said, we'll see if tax refund will be a new tank instead of tattoo work.

I definitely have an addiction to this hobby. I needed more pods, so I waited for the BOGO deal from reefs2go. Ended up getting a handful of snails as well, that the pyramid snails won't devour, and a rainbow monti.

Also, for those of us who have a refugium, how do you keep hair algae from growing on your macros?

I can't say bout anyone else but I don't get hair algae in my fuge. I got several types of macro in there with some mangrove. I run two skimmers, UV, and several reactors containing Rowa phos, purigen, and chemi pure. I also feed ALOT lol.

Hm, I have a reef octopus rated at a 150 gal setup and 2 reactors running high efficiency GFO and purigen. Still can't get rid of the stuff when I feed twice a week.

That's the same way I am. Hair algae just won't grow there. But it most definitely does in the chamber next to it. It's really all about the water changes with clean and healthy water.
