But this morning I snapped a couple of pics of them hosting it. Sorry for the pic quality and ignore the hair algae got a bad case of it right now. But I got some new urchins on it and though slow they are mowing it down.
    I had that happen once, too, where the clown hosted the anemone really quickly. . . I was pretty surprised.

    I tend to forget that those Centropyge angels are not always reef-safe, and whenever I think about doing a reef tank, I want to put one in there. This is a good reminded to me that it might not be a good idea. Glad you were able to catch it.

    Yeah no more with caution fish in this tank. I will only attempt it on a small tank. But this tank is to large to be messing with trying to get out a nuisance fish.

    I started dosing with algaefix on Sat to get the hair and red algae under control. I read a lot about people using it with great success so I decided to give it a try. After my Sat dose I have noticed that the hair algae growth has slowed considerably, enough that my urchins are able to start making a dent in it. However, the red algae is still about the same. I have a second dose today, I am waiting till I get home so that I will be there if anything goes wrong.

    Day after second dose. I am probably at half the amount of hair algae and the red algae took a beating and is probably at about 2/3 what it once was. No noticeable signs of damage to anything in the tank.

    Scarecrow: I don't know... But some people without brains do an awful lot of talking... don't they?
    Dorothy: Yes, I guess you're right.

    Apparently clowns have a natural hatred for grammas. My clowns chase my new grammas around.

    Updated FTS. Algae fix really worked well on hair algae. Not so much red slime but I can live with that better than hair. Also got some new rocks that I added to fill it out some more and give me more places to put new corals. What do you all think?



    New brain coral too.

    Looks good!

    How often and how much water do you change?
