Yes, violas and clarinets...or bioload. Bioload and violas are in the same biological family.

Well regardless of bio load you should still be able to bring the water level in there up . Maybe turn the adjustment all the way up and put a pinch of frozen food in it just to see what happens. I find it very odd that your having problems with a reef octopus. Mine will skim a cup every 2 days.

Yeah. Heard such great things...I think the valve isn't working right, but haven't had time to take it apart. Either way, its skimming and with the gfo and purigen my tank looks amazing and algae issues have ask but vanished. Now I just need to find the tube for my sea clone skimmer so my 36 can utilize it. I stirred up about of junk that is on the rocks now. Want to hook out up and get it back into the water column for removal.

INC zoas. I was happy overall with what I got. The orange bam bams haven't opened up yet...but that isn't my displeasure. Each frag has 5 heads of what are supposed to be the same zoa...not true. You'll see.

They all look good! Its a little unfair for them to do that to you though, maybe email them with pics? If you can make it to aquaworld, they have some magician's palythoas in the 5$ frags. Really pretty.

Come on man, plans are made to be modified. My plan has gone out the window due to a local tank breakdown. It's the most fun and pleasurable part of this hobby.

Well I'm in the process of selling off my zoas to make room for acans so don't wanna back track now. Plus I'm at about 45 frags/colonies in my 46 gallon tank so kinda running out of room lol.
