That doesn't matter. We see plenty of algae here and there in the ocean, so why not in your tank too? The important thing is that it looks good. A piece of the reef in your home has been accomplished

Well this is true. It is why I'm not too too worried about it most of the time. I just wish that I had more time for it as things stand.

Every time I'm in Erie, I always do a loop of as many sw stores I can. As it was Sunday, pretty limited. But I did make an unusual decision. As I stated into a tank of heavily bleached carpet anemone, I look into the tank beside and see a brown long tentacle, happily playing host to two maroon clowns. Well, after some discussion about its week since arrival and seeing even star polyps starving for light in the coral tank that he came home with me. I looked at my wife and said 'he'll really like the radions'. She agreed. Currently in drip acclimation after being diverted to work to help manage an issue, so was in the bag longer than I wanted...but I already have an idea where he'd like to plant himself. We'll see if we both agree as the night rolls on. And here is to him hopefully picking not to be brown as well...I'm wanting him to be brown from the poor lighting and that I scooped a gem.

I'm currently 'saving' a big lobo coral that had absolutely no color hoping that it will color up as well. It is showing improvements. My only LFS does a very poor job caring for anything saltwater. If that nem makes it through the transfer I'm sure you probably saved its life. Can't wait to see it. Keep an eye out though cause when them things die they can really mess with a tank so get it out quick. Had it happen to me on a bta. It got ugly. Goodluck!

Good for you man, save one life at a time. Let's see a pic? Soon it will colour up. I'm sure!

Well I'm not concerned about it nuking the tank and dying. The other anemone in the tank are solid. I put this guy in the tank, basically where I wanted him. He is really sticky, which is a great sign. Took forever to get him to let go of my hand.
