    White spots on shells and rocks

    Okay.. so may be nothing, but these look like tiny barnacles, nothing really seems off, fish seem happy.. except the snail I see these on seems to be dying? Not moving much, if at all. Now I notice them on my rock?

    Wedge a heater in sump?

    So I got an ehiem heater.. but it is long, I can technically fit it in the return part of my sump, but it will be pretty tight, is there any reason I shouldn't do this? Would it be better for me to find a different heater, or is that okay?

    Question about tangs and tank size etc..

    Black Combtooth eating brine.

    I think you may be right, its all so confusing.. the lfs sold it as a "black blenny" but I have heard of bi-colors turning black.. but seeing as how I've watched him nip at a flipped snail AND eat brine.

    Black Combtooth eating brine.

    That is kind of what I was wondering.. I have noticed he picked the snail shells clean of algae.. and he has algae to eat in the tank.. plus I have added hikari algae tabs to the tank, what else should I do?
