Honestly I don't know who I'm talking to. I did not look up your info to try and find a birth date. Comparing people to fish threw me off though honestly.

Then I'd say it's a safe assumption that you probably have a fair amount of dissolved organic compounds in the tank, even w/ the water changes. The skimmer may produce less bubbles after some more...

One thing I think worth mentioning is new tanks and tanks with high organic levels in the water will have more problems with micro bubbles than established, "clean" tanks. So if the tank is new or...

I would move any low light corals towards the bottom. I don't think shrooms will appreciate being high up in the tank w/ the new lighting. The devils hand should be OK as is. Just take it slow with...

It depends on what type of algae you are using. Caulerpa should be lit 24/7 to prevent it from going sexual. That can lead to water quality issues and a possible tank crash. If you use Cheato, etc...

Nice looking frags. Those are going to make some really nice colonies. Any idea what species the light colored piece in the back, left is? Kind of looks like a "deepwater" SPS piece.

That is what worries me. As Sadielynn said, this usaully is a very bad sign. If it looks like it's dead, get it out before it pollutes the tank. The other duster should get better w/ some time to...

Don't be afraid to overskim the tank. It's virtually impossible, at least w/ that model skimmer. I prefer to collect wet skimmate in order to remove as much waste as possible. As long as the cup is...

I ran 2x75watt VHO's over a 29 gal and was very happy w/ the results. 4X65w PC over a 29 gal would be a good amount of light. I'd say you could keep all but the most light demanding corals w/ that...
