I got two mollie miller blennies. In the past, they have eaten aptasia for me. We will see if they get the two I can see.

Tank is looking fantastic!
Thank you!

I too am trying to stay ahead of mine. Havent tried a natural (livestock) option yet. But the aipx by red sea is worth the work. I never see one come back I have hit with it. Just tough to find, locate, and reach some of the ones that settle in the back of the rock work.

Thankfully the hinging canopy I made just flips up and I cut the circulation and they are mush easier to spot from above. Such little P.i.t.a.'s

Went to see the guys at the Corner Reef and picked up a acan colony and a nice piece of fire digitata. Pictures coming after dip and settling!

Looks nice, Don

I'd like to track your Fire Digitata... :)
Thanks Freddie! I have a orange digi that's was getting killed by montipora cap and hasn't grown much. Saved it during the reset. We'll see if it will come back.

This one is going some where safe to let it grow. Should be a looker when a colony.

PSA Time! Clean your skimmers air intake! Mine was almost shut from calcium!

Every three months I need to take it apart for cleaning.

As for the impeller, it was full of chaetomorpha pieces! And this is up stream from my refugium! How it gets there, I have no clue. Filter sock from the drains should catch it all, but somehow it gets into my skimmer section!

This is after I poked a hole through it!
