Many mexican turbos coming my way on Tuesday. Here's hoping they do the job like I'm reading about. Also have a maxima clam coming my way...going to give my love of these guys another go.

Very cool! Can't wait to see that clam! Hope everything works out in your favor.

It should. Before work today I was thinking about already seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. Dosing the nitrate/phosphate has been increasing skimming, as the bacteria dies off to daily skim, and the growth has slowed as I've returned to normal feeding.

Just a quick update before I start the water change for the week that there are great signs of improvement. On the left side of the tank, where there was massive algae growth but not cotton candy type, there are signs of die off and can see rock in places where I was not removing algae at all. One step at a time.

Lots of snails in. Have a green bubble coral and a maxima clam to go with them. Content so far, though when coming home early from work to find the lawnmower blenny on the sandbed. Been wondering when that was going to occur for some time as its belly was never as full as it used to. Always ate, even last night. I really think that this is something that just happens to these guys, as it isn't the first time I've seen or heard of it happening.

Sorry to hear that man. Hopefully those snails help clear that stuff up for you. They are usually pretty hard workers. I'm looking forward to seeing that clam!

It's a beauty of a clam too. I need to figure out how to ensure this one stays. I know all the info, just haven't been successful yet.
