Hey Sam,

Thanks, I'm definitely concerned about it at this point - I'd say it's bryopsis-ish at least, which isn't good. Sucks, this new rock too. Arg.

On the side is a ReefKeeper version 1....

Guessing I'm about half way through, there's still a trace of ammonia, like 0.1. Nitrite is around 2ppm, and nitrate is around 5ppm.

I think there are some predators, but they aren't very effective, like urchins and slugs?

I have TONS of coepods and amphipods in the tank now. Also saw what looked like a centipede crawling around on the rocks like it was hunting (definitely not a bristle worm), probably about 3/4" long....

I'd say you are certainly at an elevated risk for tank failure at the very least. Don't think I'd sleep well myself with that situation. ;)

It should be simple... you're right.

Sounds like the filter floss is basically the first thing, and you just aren't using chamber 1 at all? When the level in 3 drops down because the floss is...

Uh, you should do it like you normally do with a water change. Remove the 2.5 gallons and put it into the new tank. Then, replace the water in the old tank with properly premixed ASW.

No prob. I would probably cut out the mid-day for now at least. Then cut the photoperiod back by a couple hours. Sounds like a nice light setup though.

Good luck with your algae, it should go away...

Whoa, that looks like a LOT of hair algae. I'd say CUC and cut the lights down... Manually remove some of it too if possible.

Looking good so far. What kind of skimmer is that?

I'd be curious to see if you really skip your cycle.... you got rock from LFS, so it will likely have some die-off from transport I'm guessing.

Need a surface skimmer! ;) I think you need some more color in there too. Yellow/brown is dominating.

I think as long as you don't keep your rock out of the water for any length of time, your only concern would be if you have a deeper sand bed, disturbing it might be a problem. If your sandbed is...

I like it, it's really unique and different from most of the tanks we see around here. Did you ever do anything to address the possibility of the bottom cracking from the rocks?

Looks nice.

I like it. I personally wouldn't build up an higher. You've left room for frags/corals that you get that will come on rocks, and room for growth. Is it nice and stable?
