Guess I'm going to start doin an extra 10g wc every week. Took my rock out in a tub of tank water and scrubbed it good. Going to lower my light cycle to 5 hours. Hopefully I can get an rodi unit soon.

I feel your pain on the hair algae. My rocks came covered, a good 70%ish.

The nem was probably a bad idea, they don't do well in young tanks. IMHO you'd be best off returning that

It was a freebee. Figured I'd try it a for a bit. There have been 3 closed up in the lfs tank for a month. I may be wrong in doing so but, I feel maybe it's better off. All there sw animals sit in water that is off the charts salinity wise with regular Wal-Mart hood lights. I almost died when I saw 1 green and 1 ruby mandarins starving in their tanks mixed in with aggressive fish.

If the nemmy starts doing bad I will take it a friend's mature tank and let him have it.

Thanks for the advise though. I do listen to you guys. I really want this tank to succeed so I can hopefully upgrade to a 40b and use this 29 as a sump

Found some new hitchhiker's today. These started peeking out from under my live rock today. And my snail also has a side kick
