    Tiny brown flatworms

    I've dealt with them in the past too. Before I had wrasses I got a Springer's damsel. Really nice looking peaceful little fish. I've never seen a flatworm since. I got that little fish 6 years ago and it's still going strong.

    So long Yall

    I can't believe you're already moving back! Right after your tank was getting settled in too. I hope the move back goes smoothly!
  3. I'm no expert on acropora, but in the event that something did get in the water, are you running carbon? Poly filter?

    I agree with this. What about a foxface if it's too small for a tang? Sent from my Nexus 6 using Tapatalk

    Tank update

    That's looking really good! I'm glad you were able to get on top of it.

    That looks like some serious flow!

    Cleaning a Dusty old Tank

    Assuming it's not possible to rinse it out outside with the hose, just a good wiping with water and some vinegar sounds good. I don't think you need to soak it for weeks before getting started.

    (Your tank looks amazing btw!) Another vote for hanging the lights if you can. It looks so much cleaner and you don't have anything in the way on the tank.

    Gone - Apex breakout box

    NIP. I'm not going to use it so hopefully someone else can. I'm located near southpark meadows.

    Greetings Programs

    Welcome to the club! Sounds like a nice size to start out with. I agree, lots of things have changed over the years. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it!

    I can't imagine it makes any difference seeding from the display, sump, or refugium. The bacteria and all is going to spread everywhere in the system.
  12. I had such a great time! Thanks for putting in the work to make it all possible. It was great to see everyone!

    Sounds like it's really coming along. Looking forward to pics!

    Have you checked your new salt water for phosphates? I wouldn't worry too much if everything's looking the way you want. I mean, bring the phosphates down with gfo or something, but don't stress too much. Sounds like you're doing all the right things. Victoly would definitely be the one to ask about this, but maybe adding another carbon stage instead of another DI would be good.

    I think TDS is more like calcium, mag, salt, etc, things like that. That's how I understand it. It won't tell you phos or nitrate.
