Thank you! I just scored a stunning Harlequin Tusk Wrasse and Baby DF Puffer courtesy of OBD in my QT. I can hardly wait to cut my frame for a 110 FOWLER that will be behind this DT. I bought my supplies, removed a closet and trying to stay out of further ER visits due from a major Sinusitus been battling since March 13th.

Naw...the corals didn't shrink. The fish are just bigger averaging 6-8" and each colony is wider than a 5g bucket.

Ahhh so your fish and coral are getting bigger!
What are you doing to battle the cyano? Just siphoning it out?
Or do you just not bother to not disturb the tank or spread it?
L@@ks great as always.

I and my son have been over indulging the fish this summer with blender mush seafood. So, prolonged nitrates are allowing the cyno to be persistant to return in the daytime. Stepping up the waterchanges has presented additional problems by over buffering the system 8.5 and increasing my Alk from 8dkh to 10.5. I started adding Redsea Nitrate reducing Bacterial booster to draw down the excess compounds. So...my torts are showing how unhappy they are by RTNg. Prevention is in the works to divide the dense colonies "again" to cut away the problem sections for healing to take place. No one is bullet proof! lol
