Only heard bits and pieces about it. Maybe, if it's on dr foster and smith for a good price.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of expensive. If you could see how slapped together this system really is, you would be in awe lol.

Speaking of redneck reefing, thoughts on keeping cheato in along side with my caulerpa. I need to order some pods and R2G has a pods/cheato deal. I'd get what I want and some extra, but am overall unsure.

I don't think there would be an issue with having both macros in there.

Done, cheato and pods ordered. That in tandem with the padina and the red macro that grow in my display I would think things are squared away.

Also, passed up a rose urchin that I stumbled upon. Considered reef safe, but lets be honest urchins knock stuff over constantly. And this guy was really big. Last thing I need would be the whole birds nest colony coming down on half the tank. And when I get home, ironically, one of the birds nest frags is down in the hammer coral.

It's pricey but IMHO good. I run all my tanks on it. At home and the store. It's what I also sell premixed instead of filtered ocean water. Almost got the SW storage tank with recirculation pump finished. Only another day or so & the RODI storage tank has a full friend lol.

I'll keep it in mind. Since the cyano just isn't going away, I'm having flashbacks to reading about this issue some have had with Red Sea salt. I find it hard to believe, but I'll find out I guess. Hope it isn't true because I really liked Red Sea pro.

Ok, so in the middle of water changes when it dawns on me...I haven't been updating any photos of everything going on and I've been promising to do so! Turns out that ~3pm is the 'magic time' to just point and shoot pictures of my tank. Ignore some of the uncleaned glass, like I said we're in the middle of water changes.
Also, here was a nice quick read on protein skimming that popped up on facebook today. What is a Protein Skimmer and How Does It Work? - REEF2REEF
