Things are still going well. Pulled out an algae ball the size of a softball last night. It was growing on my return line output. It came off without a hitch all in one piece too. i added a Yellow Tang to the tank about 2 months ago and its doing great. Everyone gets along pretty well.
3 x 10k 3 x super actinic. I will be going bluer when these need changing. The Maroon is the oddest fish. It just hangs out in the caves most the day. The lights have increased algae growth a lot though now i have to clean more. But my hard corals are loving it. I can already see new growth.
New addition went in today. Anyone want to guess what it is?

Little hard white spirals on your rock and glass causing confusion? When you look real close, do they have little feathers sticking out the end? Congrats, you got yourself some spirorbid worms. These little guys live in their...
They are actually snails. Perfectly normal i have thousands on the back glass in my 90 gallon tank.
The ones on your Palys on the other hand COULD be a desiese called zoe pox. unlikley though keep an eye on them. If they start to look bad give them a freshwater dip.
MTS has already run its course in my house having over 11 tanks set up at one time now im happy with my 4. He doesn't bully anyone really. The cherry barbs in there now have never been bullied. He is a really cool fish. Lets me hand feed him it is sure a sight.
Continuing from this thread
My tank has progressed very well over the past year.
Lots of coral has been added and unfortunately most of the fish from before were lost due to desiese. My Maroon Clown is the only original fish and other than him is a Banded eel.

I have had my 56 gallon tank for almost 2 years now and about 6 months ago my heater went on the fritz and cooked most of my other fish in the tank so now i have alot of extra room.
Currently there is one fairly large Koi angel and 3 cherry barbs in the tank.
Would it be possible for me to...
