    About a week ago I went to the lfs and picked up a few fish: 2 percula clowns and a royal gramma basslet. I put said fish in the tank on Monday night after lights out. Upon my return from work on Tuesday. The clowns were dancing away in the current and having a grand old time. When I began my...

    Well, I know it is partially my fault, but green hair algae has all but ruined my love of this hobby. My tank has looked like an Irish Chubaka since late November.
