Last night my coral beauty died in the qt...so I decided to finish treating my wrasse and will not be getting another angel till I have a fowlr. I will be instead getting a Midas Blenny and maybe after awhile a royal gramma. The protien skimmer leaked all over and way a pain to clean up. I think I finally figured out how to run it after a lot of research but I hate how load the skimmer is. I also hope it breaks in soon because the amount of air bubbles is out of controls but I have a tpeice of fome that I'm hoping will help for the time being even though It is quite ugly. How long should I expect to wait before seeing brown stuff in my skimmer cup to insure it is working correctly?

New video of my tank

I have recently added a protein skimmer and have converted my aquaclear70 into fuge with chaeto. Since adding the skimmer and fuge I have seen a dramatic reduction of the red slime algae in my tank. I also have noticed a lot more coral growth. Up till this week I haven't seen any at all and suddenly everything seems to be growing. My acrapora have almost doubled in size. My frog spawn split its head, along with a Duncan that's gaining a head. All of my zoaths have new heads on them as well. My flasher wrasse will be out of qt on Tuesday and will be back in the tank. I'm planning on adding a seastar or clam can't decide what one I want because I don't think I can have both? Is this true?

Your tank is looking great and now that everything is growing it won't belong before it is filled up.

Thank you I hope the tank looks the way I have planed in my mind. Need to get a few more things. Also would my hammer and frog spawn do better in my rock work or in the sand?

Today all the red slime algae was gone. The fuge and protien skimmer have done their job and I am very happy with the outcome and it was so quick. Today the Midas Blenny was sold before I could get it even though it got in today and I was there an hour after they opened he had sold...even though I ordered it. After some words he ended up giving me a tiger pistol shrimp watchman pair, an emerald grab for 10$ and I am happy with that I've wanted to have a goby and shrimp pair so that worked out alright. He said he will be able to order me another in a few weeks so I said that was fine.

Well I think my watchman must of died, haven't seen him for 4 days now and the shrimp won't leave his den, he must be eating the watchman. I added a long spine banded erchin that is very cool and seems to be doing quite well.
