I agree,looking real clean,like most people I like the red. Is it a macro algae?
Sorry. i never got an email notification to let me know there was an update. Yes it was macro algae. Gracilaria to be exact. Unfortunately it was all eaten by my Pincushion Urchin.

Those urchins love their greens,and reds. Some times I will banish my urchin to the sump until the macros have time to grow in then I let him come in and mow the lawn.
he's probably going to end up at the LFS too. It's so annoying. All my planted macros get ripped out and dragged around, eaten or thrown into my circ pump.

What is your stock? Sorry for the questions, i havent been following the thread.

My tuxedos destroy any algae. Urchins and mexican turbos are the best algae eaters.

Nice ;-) What happened to the fridmani dottyback?

Once it got around 8 months old it became a terror. I've never seen a fish actually go into the Pistol Shrimps burrow and chase it out. He would pick hermits off rocks and attack everything save my female Clown. He had to be removed.

Oh wow, they are supposed to be one of the peaceful ones. The indigo is the most peaceful. I have a baby in my 110 reef, got it for only 5 bucks! Hopefully in the much bigger tank it will not be aggressive.

Ya my one of my local petcos got one and didnt have a price nor could they find one. So since the guy knows us, and no one could find a price. He gave us it as damsel price, so 4-5 bucks.
