Ya I learned my lesson with that one already.
I have to thank Duke for filling me in on that one.
After my flat worm incident I set up a 30 gal for my new sps and played with the 120 for a few months and learned there is a fine balance between clean and to clean.
I now feed 5 or 6 times a day my own blender mush and if I don't get that film on the glass in a week I know I'm not feeding enough
The BB and the settling tank helps me to know were my phosphates are at also
I also like the Special Blend ML
