Kinda late to the party as its been up for 8 months but here she is. Live stock all done. Also getting some more softy coral in this week. excuse the bryopsis came in on live rock possibly gorg frag (gorg no longer with me died softly after I got it should of known better then to buy from lfs )from lfs reason. I hate shopping there (there tanks are loaded with pests and they don't care one bit(blue clove ,hydroids,bryopsis,both pest anenemies). Sea hare is now in tank as I dont like using meds etc and never had any luck with Kent's etc. also some flordia ceriths comming this week from reefcleaners to keep it in check after the sea hare trims it will rehome it.

Update moved wavemaker for first time since tank was setup as I did not relize sea hare could climb the acrylic in the back (they can't climb glass) I assumed acyilic would be the same mabey its only the corner he could climb used to my old all glass tanks non aio never had one climb the corner and was concerned he would fall into the wavemaker so here is its (for now)new position moved it around and played with setting for 2 hours but got it back to almost the same flow pattern as before

Update after getting the wavemaker situated last night woke up this morning to the leather being happier then it ever has been its amazing how a small change as the flow pattern is almost the same can improve things or make them worse

Thank you for the suggestion I have been hand removing it also using a multi prong attack hand removal lettuce slugs to kill the root system sea hare to eat what I can't pull short flordia ceriths to keep it short while the lettuce slugs do their thing blowing out anything the bryopsis manages to catch so it can not use it as a food source 2nd time iv ran acrossed it in 15 years hate this stuff at least I was prepared this time 1st time was a nightmare and months of reading up on it and its preditors

Also don't mind the minor dinos or cyano that's only on the new base rocks I add to raise everything up higher about a month ago that'll go away here soon id say a few more weeks to a month and the base rock will mature and it'll go away I also stoped cleaning the back wall about 3 weeks ago now to give the feather dusters more places to grow already got some popping up
