The rocks were taken out, soaked in Muriatic Acid two times, and then soaked in a solution of baking soda, to neutralize the rock. That’s why the rock was revived in a large bin of used aquarium water with some live rock, to seed the rock and bring life back into it.
During this several week process I cleaned all the glass, bottom and coral bases of GHA, and did several 50% water changes.
The GHA did come back a little, but 30% waterchanges every week, the use of 2 ml Vodka daily and the use of NP Biopellets XL got rid of it once and for all.

Soon I will add more Cardinals to the tank, it is ?Apogon Reef? after all, and I can?t call it this way with only 5 cardinals in it. Because of the sheer size of our forum, we've been forced to limit selling and trading to members who've met a couple of criteria. Do you ever have problems with your tank being "too clean?" I have a barebottom tank with a larger skimmer and from time to time the acros get stressed out due to lack of nutrients.
I snapped a couple pictures a couple nights ago of the first time I caught my cardinals out schooling.
Some weeks ago I also added some more Apogon to the reef, it is ?Apogon Reef? after all, and I can?t call it this way with only 5 cardinals in it. Pulling the rock out of water and going at it with a dremel would work if that's what you have handy. Mitch, I realize that surface film will be my enemy, any suggestions, other than running the glass top?


I am not happy with the pump in my tank and do want a MP10, but i did think it too costly.If i go for a white back the pump will show even more. I have considered making the back og my edge white also, wonders what it will look like.I had it black in my FW versjon and was happy with that, but my fiancee did want it white and i have been wondering what it will look like since.
All of the coral except the kedd reds really look awesome with the new ATI blue pluses too. This effectively removed all the debris and green hair algae that was in and on the rock, but I also killed all the live on and in it. They become part of our family, and we devote a lot of time to them for their continued health and our enjoyment.
After the summer holidays the reef suffered a major outbreak of Green hair algae (GHA), that was very hard to get rid of. Long time no talk - I had a lot of issues and distractions so I am just starting to get semi-active on the boards again. Years ago when you were first posting pictures of the formosa forest, I set a goal based on your tank to be able to enjoy something similar every day. Just experiment with feeding more and reduce your lighting period when you having pale colors.
Got some super glue gel and a razor and glued some trimmings to a new rock of the green start polyps.
The location of the Duncan's was starting to interfere with 2 of the polyps opening completely due to it being fairly close to some rocks.
I have acquired a Pink lemonade SPS, a blue enchinada (enchinata?), some other SPS, a sunset montipora, a grape ape favia and a yellow eye challice and several zoas. After moving to the 75, I fragged a few little strips off to another rock with a little super glue gel. Reason I’m saying this is because I used to have a pair of adult banana wrasses like yours and they both jumped out of my tank after I moved and had no sand in the display tank.


I told my family how you had a thread on here, and that I recognized you (kinda lol) and your Apogon reef! When I look at the FTSs I don't ever get the feeling that what I'm seeing actually came from any part of the ocean or any ecosystem in the world at all.
The new reds have already produced 4 new polyps (the color is still kind of lame though), the blues have 3 new polyps, the eagle eyes have at least 2 new ones and no one is eating the hair algae off of the watermelons yet.
While I'm at war with the hair algae, the frags that haven't attached to rocks got moved to a piece of egg crate so they don't get knocked over. I figured with my algae issues, less food in the water coluMost of the zoas are doing really well. It also appears like the torch is ok after losing a few heads after getting knocked into the sand.
What are you planning on keeping in the tank?I like the sleek look of the light fixture, it is one of the reasons I went with the cadlight's, the light should be more than enough for softies.
Other then that, it looks like its going to be a great tank! I totally wanted to order one but I hate picos because I always seem to forget to top them off.
The slowest growth zoa is clearly the lunar eclipse, even the blue hornet is growing new babies. I figured with my algae issues, less food in the water column would probably help (shrimp steals most of it anyway).
The torch is slowly starting to look a little better and the duncan is sprouting new heads like crazy.
