It is just a green haze over the RO water. I change out 2 gal 1week ago today. I clean the filter @ every water change. I use only RO water, never tap. I test the water with the test tubes and the drops of solution.
I feed the blennie and crab a few tiny pellets of food just 1x/day.
I am beginning to believe that there is not enough water movement. I will try to see what I can do about this.
To remove the Kenya Tree coral, do I just pick it off the LR? I can see where a few new ones have started.
Thanks, again, all of you for your help!!

One more question (sorry), but how often are you supposed to change the light bulbs?
Thanks,
Anida

Well it sounds like you are doing a good job taking care of the tank! Just cut back on the lighting a few hours maybe and also when you clean your filter you should be cleaning it in the old water from the tank to keep all the beneficial bacteria alive (you might be doing this already just thought I'd mention it)

As for the kenya tree, you can just pull it off the LR at its root if you want or you can try to break off a chunk of the rock it is on. I had my two larger pieces of kenya tree on small rocks so i just brought the whole thing into the LFS. I then pulled off the new smaller pieces that had attached to my larger pieces of rock and threw them out. The odd time i didn't get all of the root and it tried to grow back but i would just pull it off again.

Lights I'd replace at least every year. They say to replace MH every 6 months though so possibly sooner? I'm not too sure on that.

Yep!!! That's all it took was to create more movement on the surface of the water!!!
Thanks everyone!
