Your tank is looking good and I like your aquascaping. I understand your comments when it comes to the feather and razor caulerpa algae. I had the feather growing in my tank for a while because I liked the way it looked, but it soon started taking over so I ended up pulling most of it out and putting it in my refugium. The remaining amount that I could not get to was soon eaten by the sailfin tang that I added.
