    Mine was covered in coraline algae I put a blue damsel in to dump ammonia in the tank
    to speed up the cycle just keep testing

    This is where I get out of my depth alittle what's coralline algae...? Your either get some on here or you can always try Swindon a lot more shops there!
    Doesn't the skimmer do that...? Or am I wrong to say that..?

    Army got you running to many drills! Ha
    Oh I'm with you! That stuff you see all over the old mature tanks! Haven't got any of that yet! Ha floaters! Well I've got 2 bits of filter sponge with some carbon squished in between which will hopefully get rid of those floaters!!
    My tank is coming along ok... trying to source some cheap live rock at the moment! To fill her up! But the lights are on full time now! So the cycle can start properly going... Even though I had them on Monday at full wack and I think it started turning my rock white.... Isn't that called bleaching...? ( tell me if in right of wrong..???)
    How about yours got anything new...?

    Just to double check...Your getting paid to play footy..? How does that even work...? I don't understand the army system!! Confuses me!
    What's ms mean...?
    Well if your up for it we could go for a 70/30 split..? What you think...?
    No lights start at 7 on night blues then ramp up till 1 when there on full then from half 2 ramp down till half 9/10 when they turn off! Tested Sunday and everything was good! Going to check in the morning when I've got a spare 20 mins!

    Conjunctivitis... Is worse than chicken pox my missis seems to think... ( she's a optician )
