I have a clip that is like that...and I'll be honest I would like it if I actually used it. My fish aren't tangs, so they really don't care. I moved it into the sump to hold cheato and it totally fell apart and died.

I hear that. I keep microfiber cloth near my tank all the time since I'm always shoulder deep in it, lol.

its just the petco 24" grabber. came with the needle nose grabbers and a knife attachment. not the best one but the 2-3 times ive used it in my tank its done its job. really nice part i like is the t-handle.

wow didn't even see this until now. im using caulerpa prolifera but its not really fast growing. (atleast for me) but it seems to be holding steady. ive run both a spiral bulb on it, and currently have a 24" dual-bulb t5, but I cant seem to get it to take off.
its been awhile since ive done a tank update, got a 1.4 lb bottle of Phosguard for Christmas, so I decided to fashion up a homemade reactor. I simply used a plastic jug , cut the main hole in the cap for the incoming water, then drilled about 15-17 tiny holes for the outgoing water. its made a noticeably big difference in water quality. at first the water was a bit cloudy but after it cleared up, wow!! almost all of the red slime algae has died off and left a beautiful lighter purple underneath. unfortunately, 2 or 3 of the corals haven't made it. the toadstool came unglued and disappeared, the chalice kept falling so I moved it down into the refugium, but the torch coral, both frags of plays, the xenias, and the other one is doing good. one of the most amaing aspects of marine life is that we were looking closely at the tank yesterday and noticed that at some point over the past month, a frag of zoas must have fell and gotten stuck in between 2 rocks...but its growing! I wanted to move it back but why even bother? going to get some pics up of the tank.

That is a really neat way to run that phosguard. I never would have thought that one up. I still have some cyano creeping on the non mp40 side of the tank. Thoughts on kicking up to a sps yet?
