I will get some pictures soon.
Oh I forgot about pictures sorry. In my littler 20gl things went down hill fast my giant hermit crab moved in there because he was not happy in the other tank for a few weeks he just sat in the corner half alive I thought he was about to molt but he passed lat night he crawled out of his shell again. My decorator also is in that tank he has been doing well but the day before the hermit passed he formed a blob around his heed I dout he is still alive pods are crawling on him. :(
My big tank is doing ok. The algae has slowed corals are really happy with the new light. My brain coral formed a polyp. I will test parameters today and get pictures. (unless I forget)

Idr if you run a fuge or not, but I've got nearly 0 algae in my DT with chaeto and more LR in the fuge. The chaeto is clean, but the LR has gotten quite a bit of GHA on it. I don't mind because it's in the sump, but maybe that's an idea for you to try out.

Went on a month long RV trip had someone feed my tank once a week and not clean it looks the same not much more alga on the rocks but the glass is considerably greener. Nothings died the Feather duster looks very happy and much bigger than last I saw it.

While it is still green I am surprised the algae did not take over completely or kill any corals because no one was keeping up with it.

Glad the fish have a place to stay till your tank is up and running again. If your corals have grown off the plugs and are incrusted on the rocks you will have to chisel them off, or break the rock into smaller pieces. Just make sure you scrape off all the algae from whatever rock/coral you put in your sisters tank.
