  1. Nice build! Can't wait to see some coral in there!!!
  2. There are all kinds of man made stuff. Really depends on how much you want to spend as to what you get. If you have a local fish store you can stop in to just to see types and how much a pound of rock is in size. I just picked up a few pieces from my store that was $1.5 a pound. You can buy Marcos, BRS, Billy's reef connection type rock. It is very light and has lots of room to place frags. Real Reef Rock is very nice, but it is 8.99+ a pound. Then you have to decide if you want regular looking rock, Tonga branch, shelf, or a mixture of all. As far as how much rock you want is totally up to you. Some people say 1-2 lbs per gallon. Personally I think that is too much. I like more negative space and complex structures, compared to a rock wall. Everyone has their own idea as to what is appealing when it comes to aquascaping, so let your creative juices flow!
  3. I just put up a bunch of stuff on reef trader. Feel free to check it out and let me know if you have any questions. https://www.reeftrader.com/users/663/listings

  5. Do you have tube worms? I have acros that will encrusted around the tube worm, but the worm builds its casing faster than the acro encrusts. So I end up with these weird off shoots of encrusted tube worms. Lol
  6. Yes, I got them from Reeftown.com. Super easy to order and they have great customer service. After the aptasia is all gone, they will no longer have a food source and die off. So the last round cleared everything out, but then I introduced a frag that ended up having an aptasia on it. Upon initial inspection I didn't see it, but noticed it a week or two later. By then it was to late. I have waited because they aren't the cheapest option, but it wasn't a huge issue until lately. I had never seen eggs before this shipment. One of the nudies ended up laying eggs in the container. Looks just like snail eggs. Hopefully they will hatch and I will have a huge population here soon!
  7. Another round. Aptasia is overtaking my tanks.
  8. It's been a minute, but I'm back... Until I'm not. Lol
  9. Welcome! Looking forward to the build.
  10. When is the last time you did a water change? Your LPS and SPS will require calcium and alkalinity to create their skeletons, so yes it should be a concern to a certain degree. Generally with smaller tanks that are not over stocked, you should be able to take care of it with water changes.
  11. When was the last time you have been to animal kingdom? The New Avatar area is AMAZING! Flight of Passage is the best ride I have been on in my whole life. No joke.
  12. Reef. Does munch on CUC, but I think my wrasse was more of the culprit.
