so, it's been a while since i've done any sort of update so here goes;
I've added a bit more coral (pics to follow), so right now i have some zoa, green star polyp, kenya tree, duncan, a little red blasto, candy cane, and a little pipe organ.
i wanted to get a small amount of hammer head coral, but I've heard they can be quite 'stingy' and I'm not sure if i can put it far enough away from anything else to stop it killing others off.
Also, i've had a bit of a mysterious green algae bloom.. I've tested all my params and everything seems fine, i noticed i have absolute zero phosphates (which i'm assuming is because the algae is having it all). I'm still using chemical to remove the algae, but it doesn't seem to be working. My lights are on a timer and run for 6 1/2 hours a day. It's out of direct sun light and everything seems to be thriving in there..
also, i've noticed a couple of tiny snails (stomatella i think) have appeared, but only when the lights are out at night.
