I'm getting a lot of brown algae dust over the glass of my dt
It is brown
Tank: 244 litres inc sump
Going on 8 weeks
Phosphates very low waiting on new test kit
2 x clowns
1 banded shrimp
Some zoas and an anemone
I tried to let it take hold to burn itself out but while I was out my son cleaned the whole tank!
Any advice appreciated

I've been reading the getting started guide, http://www.thesaltybox.com/forum/help-and-advice/110278-setting-marine-tank-basics.html, ( for about the millionth time! ) and just have a few quesitons. This is probably impatience as i'm just starting a tank for the first time but i can't necessarily see an obvious answer so thought i'd ask.
So, if my ammonia and nitrite levels are zero is there anything else to wait for before adding a clean up crew? I've read some things...
Need advise please. lost my coral beauty last Friday which was really unexpected as he seemed fine Thursday night. Then I lost my yellow tang on Monday and now 1 of my chromis had died. Had the water checked and all is fine so I'm baffled. Worried now for the rest of my fish.
Hi saltys.....just after people's opinions really. Over the last 4 weeks I've lost nearly all my fish from what I believe to be velvet. My Caribbean blue tang showed signs of marine black spot and over the course of a week it went down hill. Within 10 days Id lost carribean blue tang,purple Tang,algae blenny,Midas blenny,royal gramma,both clowns,kole tang,chalk goby and scooter blenny. Remaining fishare yellow Tang,flame angel,yellow/banana wrasse and female peacock wrasse all of which have...

Very new to marines (6 months) and have a small tank that was converted to marine before I bought it. Now long story short time, it was on a cartridge filter but I've made a sump and it was only when talking to George at Reefloat that he said I will be needing an overflow box (which I haven't got or even knew about). I must give a big thank you to George, I phoned to to buy a top up unit from him and he said he wouldn't sell me one just yet as I needed to sort out the...
I recently purchased new radions and I love them...my new headache is that I run a maxspect gyre 150 on my system and was looking at getting another and putting them on a smart controller BUT since setting radions up and reeflink I'm tempted by 2 x mp40qd instead and having full control of lights and flow via the app. What would you guys run and why? Got few sps colonies and mainly lps at the minute. Gyre looks more pleasing to the eye and does shift water but can be...
