    I have some I can send you. But I'm waiting to here from them if it's still good. I ordered from them when they were sending out free samples, but never used it.
    I just sent the email earlier today. I've had it on my shelf for about 4 months.

    That would be awesome! Getting tired of looking at a blue tank-lol. Actually from the look of things it doesn't seem to be doing a whole lotta good.

    Just heard back from Nuagli and they said the product has a 3 year shelf life.
    PM me your address and I'll drop it in the mail.

    Checkout the thread on R2R and see what others say.
    The dosing instructions are on the website.

    I spent an hour last night reading every post on R2R like you suggested-lol. Got up this morning and turned my heater down. Tank temp is now at 79.1 will try to drop it at least another degree.
    I'm a bit nervous because of the 1 who says his tank crashed from using it. But on the other hand there are many more who are having/had great results/success with it. So because of this I'm very willing to try it.
    Once again Marty you've gone above and beyond. I am so very grateful to you. Thank you!

    nice looking corals! Do you keep your favia at the bottom? I am having trouble getting a brighter color out of my favia. I want it to be a brighter green.

    Great except for this crap on my SB-lol. I'm really wanting to try this Nualgi but I'm scared ya know. Debating on, should I wait to see if it clears up on it's own, turn my white lights down even more? I don't really know what to do.

    I gently stir up the surface in hopes of disturbing it enough to be removed via the over flow. Every time I do this, my sock & skimmer get really nasty. So it's doing some good. But the stuff comes right back.
    I know for a fact I'm not over feeding. Only got 2 fish. I'm not using any coral foods, nor dosing anything else. Nor do I think it's diatoms, although it "looks" like them.
    If I leave the SB alone then it develops little tufts of algae. So something is definitely bound up in the sand itself. I'm almost tempted to do a deep cleaning of the SB. Thinking I got some bad Live Sand?

    On a good note all corals are thriving and fish are doing well

    Sorry for the rant...just frustrated

    I've never used the live sand in a bag myself.
    I like to clean my sand just as much as possible before adding it to the tank. Seems like the potential for adding unwanted things is higher. But then I like a shallow sand bed. 1" to 1-1/2" at most. I do deep clean this. All the way to the glass bottom.

    I'm getting cyno in my 233 on the sand bed and a few rocks. I haven't had to deal with that in years.
    It's kind of ugly too.
    I'm pretty sure it's from a combination of over feeding and new sand.
    I'm feeding twice a day now. I have a couple anthias and everything I've read about them is they need 2-3 feedings a day.

    So I started using GFO and carbon last week. I think it's helping a little.
    I also added more flow from a Vortech MP40.
    Could really use another, but now that I'm on a fixed income, funds are tight.

    I have a un-opened container of UltraLife Red Slime Remover sitting on my shelf that I am very tempted to try.
    I also have 2 bottles of Boyds Chemi-Pure I may try too.

    I really like the ChemiPure Elite. Been using it for years. Does a nice job gently, unlike a reactor that sometimes strips quickly.

    On another note. I think I may have made a big mistake Been trying to raise my ALK. It's been running very low. Yesterday a.m. it was 6.7 so I dosed 25ml of BRS soda ash. Tested this morning and reading was 7.6 this is good. So I dosed 30ml. Tested tonight and damn, it's at 8.4! Didn't think it would jump that high that quick! Not sure if it's the cause but my Birds Nest did not look happy! Only partial PE which is very unusual Man I hope I didn't kill it.

    Times like these I'm wishing I had a doser.
