    I know to expect algae in my new reef tank, but I was not ready to see it so early. My tank has been up and running since March 25th. March 29th the live rock arrived and was added to the system. I have been testing ammonia on almost a daily basis. I have tested Nitrites and Nitrates as well...

    Pix of new leopard wrasse now that she has become accustomed to the tank and other inhabitant. This is a very pretty fish! The leopard is now rarely in hiding and seems to always be out and about. My sixline wrasse was the only fish that gave the leopard a quick chase at first, but has since...

    NH3 and NO2 are zero. Added cleaner crew today (10 turbos, 10 astraea, 10 nassarius, 3 hermits (red legged), one sally lightfoot, and a lawnmower blennie). Hopefully they make the HA go away.

    Ok, got the tank mostly set up. Here's a few pics... The chiller will be connected soon, I just need to figure out if it needs additional shelter (or if the awning will protect it). Here's its guts. 2 250w MH's and 2 65w actinics. The 2 cooling fans are visible as well.
