I like the Jager Eheim heaters. Work very well and are consistent. I would still get a heater controller if you have the $ for one. Peace of mind is worth the extra $50.

Halimeda is a calcareous macro algae. It builds its leaf blades using calcium. Grazers won't eat it. It's up to you if you like the look of it or not.

If it's dry base rock, I usually let in soak in a bucket of RODI water overnight and then brush it off before I add it to the tank.

Can you remove some and build one side up? Could use more space between the rocks.

You can brush it off with an old toothbrush. I like removing it before adding it to my tank.

That'll be fine. Depending on the salt type and ambient temp of the room, you may not need to use a heater to mix, just a strong PH or pump.

Definitely an anenome. Can you take a pic of the underside of the anemone? The presences or lack of verrucae (spots) will help identify it.

I would get the fish that are suitable for the tank you have now. Possum Wrasse are pretty cool little fish. A couple of nemo's will also add some good color to the tank.

Unfortuantely, many of those fish are not suited for a tank that small. The yellow coris wrasse needs a 40g+ tank, a lawnmower blenny and purple dottyback need a 30g+ tank.

Looks like you're making progress. If you're done with the regular cupramine treatment, I would definitely wait a few weeks and see how things go. If things are fine, I would add him to the DT then.

I would give it a couple weeks and observe how it does. Has it been eating more lately?

Corals and anemones will require decent/expensive lighting.

CUC do not add substantial waste to our systems. Their bioload is negligable as far as our hobby grade test kits can detect.

Pictures would help, but odds are it's a bristleworm. They're generally reef safe, but the bigger ones tend to get a bit on the nasty side. Up to you if you want to remove them.
