    So I will have guests basically all day on Christmas day. Of course I want to show off my tanks. I run 7 hours on the SPS tank w/ 2x250w MH and 9 hours on the softie tank with 130w PC. Will running them for 12 hours or so (10:00am to 10:00 pm) for one day cause any problems?

    How to reduce flow in the big canister filter, change the impeller for the one from the lesser flow model, or cut the blades? Guessing here. I have Fluval 404, 340gph of the really high flow, more, than Seio's 600 gph, was used on 90g FOWLR. Now toying with an idea to make the nano...

    I am finally getting on top of a hair algae outbreak. Got a new cleanup crew and cut fish feeding in half. Remaining question is whether coral foods such as Microvert encourage the algae? I also have a tuxedo urchin that I think keeps eating the cleanup crew. Should it go back to the LFS?
