Alright I'll take a tank shot when I get home! And btw my coral had a few hitch hiking crabs yikes! But got all of them off and all is well now. The crabs blended in so well I didn't notice them until I closely examined the coral and saw something moving on the rock it came with

Thanks! i have just been dealing with film algae on the glass where i have to scrape almost every couple of hours, ( on the curve glass i see a little green and it drives me crazy!) i guess i have to get more of a clean up crew and run either purigen or chemical elite.
I also have to get a protein skimmer where im deciding on a hang on the back so i can keep the basket or get the tunze protein skimmer that fits in the middle compartment

Tunze is a really good skimmer. But yea, if your having to scrape every couple of days, there is something still phosphates in the system. I think I just wipe mine down, once a week or every 10 days or so, and its barely visible, I do it more becuase I get Coralline growing.

Yea I need to lower the phosphates by doing wc? I also just got the jbj protein skimmer kit for free from a friend that never used it so I guess it's better than no skimmer
I'll do a review on it. Once I get it

Water changes won't reduce Phosphates unless your using Distilled or RO/DI water. Tap water usually contains a ton.
