Good and bad.. Good: corraline algae!!! Keep lighting high and you will get more. Bad: hair I think?? It is bcuz of phosphates, overfeeding, overstocking, etc. Do pwc's and they will hopefully go away. Never, and I repeat NEVER use chemicals that have copper unless mr. X or someone with knowledge of fish and corals with a little bit of common sense tells you to. Also just in case anyone didn't know.... Never ever put tangs in nano reef.. Someone who lives near me put one in a 2.5 nano?!?!?!?! They need about 6 ft of swimming room.. I have said what I needed to say. Sorry for such a long post.lol
