    Nice! Be sure to keep that xenia on an isolated rock. That stuff will grow on any other rock it touches.

    Well here is my first hurdle....got a phosphate problem causing alot of green hair algae. Went out today and picked up 2 turbos, 2 nassarius, and 2 astreas hopefully with them a 2 gallon water change and lights off for a day or to can correct the problem.

    ^ part of the new tank journey, buddy! Get a good CUC, do water changes ever two-three days, and scrape those rocks.

    Quick update. The algae bloom is slowly dieing which is awesome and I know have 3 heads on my zoa frag, the elephant ears are opening alot bigger, and the worst news is that the pulsing xenia is going everywhere. 20161128_181807.jpg

    Took some constructive criticism and did a little re arranging. I plan on adding an arc from the center straight back. Put how does it look at this point?
