good to have you on! for the record, I started my 55 with a 25-member cleaning crew and it was miserably insufficient. I just topped it off with 35 more from Garret at the premium aquarium and I'm glad I did. even by lights out last night they'd made a big dent in my algae, can't wait to see it tonight!

Also, Thanks to Jesse, for the Acan and the free stuff!! :D


New additions:


1 green Acan

3 types of Zoas

1 frag of Green mushrooms

1 frag of Birdsnest SPS




No problem. Hope the fresh frag of armageddons make it through. If not I can make you another one when your ready

Welcome aboard, you will learn alot from this forum and everyone on it. I hope your tank prospers!


Is that Aqueon 30 modded to be a refugium? If not, you should consider doing so...it will do much more good for you. Also, adding some sort of carbon would be beneficial.


With that size tank and that small of a skimmer, just try to keep your feedings at once every other day....until you have a better nutrient export system in place(sump with large skimmer, refugium, etc)

Hey Mandinga.... is there a thread anywhere which shows me how to start a refugium? I want to look into starting one in the near future... really want my corals to do well ... . . . .


And yes Mike, I need to start a QT... will a 10 G suffice though? And i am really sorry to hear about ur fish!! :( I lost all my fish in my smaller fresh water tank a few months back and it is tough!!! :(
