Yeah. It's my favorite coral, so its nice to know the name. It's common name is from Ora, but the ones they have look a lot different.. Good enough for me.

I had a guy from my reef club come over and take the Xenia from my Xenia scrubber. He also bought my darth maul palys from me, so that's 10$ for some fish stuff! Also, I bought all that stuff a few days ago, and it costed about 60.00.... I checked my account right after and it took the money, I went back on today, and the money is back?!?! I'm not sure what to do..

So you spent money, it showed online in your bank account that you spent it, and now it is no longer showing the withdraw? You were not getting a refund correct? I've had something like this happen before and I advise you to not spend that money again. Sometimes a transaction will show in your account but be a pending charge. Then it will disappear but come back in a few days as the actual charge. Keep an eye on your account for a few days. It should appear again.

Yep, it went back to 48 cents today lol. Good news is.. I found 10$ in my pocket today! More to spend on the tank, im such an addict lol.

The bryopsis algae doesn't look much different, but the cyano is going away slowly. Ill keep on dosing..

So.. What would be the best way to enhance my lighting? I have the 120w LEDs, but are there any single strip t5s or something I could get that would supplement them for like 4 hours a day? I love the combo of t5 and led, but I can do halide too... Just need it to fit in the canopy.

If everything is doing fine under your leds, why suppliment? Questioning everything before doing it is key imo...i tend to throw money at problems to solve them. Not always the best practice when trying to save up for a house. But still the same concept in your shoes. Build up that rainy day fund incase of emergency. Yoir tank will love you more by addressing a leak or needing a new sump more than a small t5ho strip now.

Well, I've been finding that a lot of my corals have lost their colors now that the t5s have been off for a while. Heres a pic of my acan when I had them under t5, now they look ugly if I compare them. I know it'd be a good idea to start Saving for other things, and for emergencies, but this shouldn't be too expensive compared to other upgrades I would like to do. Ive been Saving a lot more since I'm getting a permit in a few months and my license in April at the earliest.

Hegan has some excellent single t5 fixtures you can get on amazon. By the way, my brother set up his 75 with a combo of T5s and LEDs and his corals look way better with both then with either alone.
