After all that I forgot what i was posting about...
came home from work and found that a bubble algae that had been on one of the live rocks had popped and the shell had traveled about 1 foot. I took it out and didn't think anything of it. now about 4 days later my water has this greenish haze and the live rock all seem to be greenish, the back wall down by the sand seems to have taken on that same disturbing glow as well. I scrubbed the walls all that i could reach anyway and I changed 25 gallons of the water last night and it looks a little lighter but maybe i'm deluding myself.
so what do u think-- one little bubble algae do all this or what??
ps- how can you tell if your rock is starting to go purple, doesn't it start green??
