    Iv got rid of most of my brown snot. I think its cyano. Brown slime. Iv all but beat it by regular maintenance and removing it manually with a pipette.

    Can you nuke the re.aining Aiptasia with some Aip X? Or are they in a fiddly place.

    I'm hoping the "Snot" will burn itself out, the Aips, I could get at some, but not all, I reckon I need some more Nudies...............

    Just had a good read through your thread mate. Youve got a great tank [MENTION=11313]Whipitup[/MENTION]. I love your scape and your corals look stunning.

    When eventually i manage to get my upgrade i either want a 2x2x2 or a 3x2x2 and id be extremely happy if i could get it looking half as good as yours.

    Big thumbs up mate.

    Thank you, If you have the space (and the money) I'd go for the 3x2x2, still cube(ish) shaped, but that little bit more room

    Cheers Dave, if I could just work out what is causing/fueling the "snot" I'd be a happy bloke!
