Well I ordered 30lbs of Live Rock Rubble to start with from toofishy.com it was 1.50 a lb. It its good Ill get some more. I called my lfs one wanted 3.00 bucks a lb but was out and 1 wanted 2 bucks a lb but they were out also. So with any luck Ill have fresh live rock rubble early next week. I am excited about this change because a long term goal is to have a mandarin running around in my tank. But from reading on this site I know how difficult they are to keep. But maybe this is a step in the right direction for that too. Who knows. This is a very addictive hobby.

Thanks for all of the help. When I get the rubble im going to add it to my sump and slowly over time start removing the bio balls.

A step in the right direction. You are at the maximum capacity for your tank but should be okay. I would slow feedings to once every other day. That is plenty. I feed my reefs about once every three days. Feeding once a day is certainly contributing to your NO3 issues. Cut way back (don't worry, your fish will be fine) and make sure you thaw and rinse all frozen food with RO/DI water prior to feeding the tank. Soaking it in a dietary suppliment like Vita Chem and Selcon is also a good move. Keep up on water changes until the NO3 is down.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
