Yes ... there are Aptasia. No I don't care anymore. Nothing works to get rid of them.

Tank looks great. I wish I could keep my sand that clean.
Thanks. I have a 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inch sand bed that I vaccum with every water change.

I have a retrofit with typical MH reflectors around the MH. I run three 250W XM 10K bulbs and two 140W VHO actinics.

Dave great shots! tank looks really great
Thanks tims. I took these after almost 7 weeks of tank neglect. I spent the weekend scraping coraline, cleaning pumps, did a 32 gallon water change, cleaned the skimmer, and did a little reaquascaping. I'm still not completely satisfied with it yet but overall this has been my most successful tank. Before this tank fraging skills with sps was something that I never needed!

love those purple montis
I really love them to. They started out as one colony that had a small 1" plate break off during shipping. I glued the frag to the overhang in the picture. Here is a before shot of the colony.



And after
