About the algae post, I later considered we were misreading it. That perhaps English was not their first language. That they were lamenting their own algae and sharing the frustration. Just throwing it out there.
You know early on, I thought that too. Then I forgot about thinking it, and when I reread the post I got a little annoyed again. Totally forgetting that the persons post did kinda look like english was a second language. I totally forgot that I thought that until I read your post. I am getting a little cabin fever I think.

I find things a bit stressful in these difficult times.
I worry about my Close Family, my 3 kids, my 86 year old mom.

A trip to Home Depot and Grocery store today, was like walking into The a Twilight Zone Movie (Me Wearing Rubber Gloves, Mask and Sanitizer Handy in pocket)

I avoid watching too much TV News (like my wife does all day long). You get all freaked out.
Yes...One Certainly got to take things Seriously. Be Informed. Take precautions. Extra Safety measures.

However....We also have to try and think positive (if still healthy, and safe)...

A friend sent a few Pandemic (Light Humor Jokes).

I thought these two were a bit funny. (hope nobody takes any offense).

Absolutely loving this Blue Cespitularia

That is a very underrated coral. I loved mine but unfortunately nuked it somehow. I picked up a small frag from Pacific East Aquaculture. Probably less than 1". Anyway it was growing very well reaching up to 5" in spread and even attached to a rock next to it. Really a beautiful coral when in mother from flow. I did a water change and within 48 hours it more or less disintegrated... I don't know what I did but the only thing I can think of is that I made a mistake during the water change and salinity.

Great looking coral. I'm going to try again at some point but need to make sure I corrected whatever I did.

First decently focused picture I have ever gotten of the PJ Cardinal trio together.

I like the Side Tank view photo.
Bit grainy on my big Monitor, but on my Phone's smaller screen, it looks fantastic.

Eh, iPhone camera. Works for me. Lots of crap floating around too. Very “natural” LOL!
Some Iphones can do better than SLR.
Floating particulates are healthy for Corals, but I still like the Crystal Clear look. (at least the glass viewing thru walls). However I always fall behind on that too.
