Looks good man,pretty nice blend of light when they are all on.How long has it been up? Did you already go through your algae bloom after your cycle?

You don't mean a orange shoulder tang do you?

Some one might call the Tang Police :) .

Don't worry I am not one who goes on and on I just know that there are some people who do.So how long has it been up? Two weeks? Without a skimmer,sump\macro,a ton of live rock,or really good chemical filtration the algae is still to come.What is your clean up crew looking like? If you end up wanting to try out some macro I can send you some for free,you pay shipping,as I always have too much.

Well the offer stands if you decide you have the same old run of the mill macro algaes where you are at.If you have some thing odd where you are at maybe we could do some trading.I like all sorts.

Mad daily water changes would be so nice, I bet your tank residence love it. I find myself topping off a gallon a day some times but not changing a gallon.
