While I have an open thread, I'm gonna change the subject a little.
Do you guys have any idea why my live rock would still look near brand new after 6-7 months? I started out with 60 lbs of base rock and 20 lbs of live rock (with lots of coralline starting) from my nano tank. All of the coralline died during the cycle and hasn't come back. I never had an algae bloom, and my rock is now kinda brownish, whitish. Not the nice grey that I see most live rock has.
I ask, because when I set up my nano tank, I literally had coralline forming on the dry rock within 2 weeks, and then the rock turned all grey within 2 months.
Could my parameters be bad for live rock or something?
This is it-
The blue lighting makes it look better than it really does
