That is super awesome lol. So far so good for me. I must be doing something right coz my fish seem to be healthy and nothing else has died. I did see a pretty big serpent star inside my protein skimmer but i'm afraid if i try to get it out that i might break my skimmer or kill the star. I have quite a bit of red bubble algae growing in my tank on all of my equipment and some of my LR and the hard pieces of dead coral. Should I be concerned? Will my colt coral (tree) reproduce on it's own? Can you frag it? J/W thanxx Kayla

colt

when the colt coral is nice and healthy ...and has several arms or large nubs get a new razor blade and cut a piece off then put it in a cup as i have mentioned before making sure the water is not too stagnent and yet the frag does rest on the bottom....wait until it adheres to some rubble or small rock and there is your frag....

red bubbles

the red bubbles are probably cyanobacteria....this is not a good algae...get a water chemistry check when you can...check nitrites, nitrates, phosphates....if this is not the problem try bumping down your light regiment...or more clean up crew as in hermits and snails....some crabs but some of those can be predetory...dont be to alarmed as long as you get rid of the cyanobacteria before it gets out of hand you will be good... vacuum up as much as you can to help curb it...

I saw a picture of Botryocladia skottsbergii and it looks identical to what's in my tank. Is that different from cyano? Can I manually remove it? Thanxx for all the advice you have been giving me. I have a wish/cart list of some supplies that I need like lights and such and tomorrow's my anniversary so maybe my husband will agree to spend $150 or so lmao :)

light

50-50s are one of the best lights you can get when only one bulb can be used...its gonna be so much better for your photosynthetic invertebrates...and the color will be more apealing as well...
