I actually like the algae...b/c since everything is so new, the algae covers the rock, and makes it look full and real....otherwise there is to much bare rock w/out color or life. And the green algae is a great contrast to the RBTA.

I'm saying it gives a "natural" look to his reef tank.

My RBTA and Clown again. I used the envelope as a way to judge size. The envelope is 9.5" long, which puts the anemone at about 11"-12".
I keep moving corals out of its way, and it keeps expanding.

rook i just thought of somthing. if you extend your drain further into the filter sock, it would help. also you are aware that you need to change your filter socks every 2 days right?

the drain directly into the skimmer. also may i suggest flex pvc into the filter sock. it makes it a little easier to change the sock.

sorry if anybody has asked this already,
but im curious as to why there is gravel in the sump?

IMO detritus will get stuck in the gravel with time.

btw very nice
