    Theres an annoying residue on my glass from the clear plastic it was packaged in that I cant get off. Any tips? I've tried warm water but it didn't help.

    Didnt take time to turn my pumps off but heres a pic of it now. Been running since March 6th. Transfer went great. I dropped a rock on my Wall Hammer and he's not been happy but he's opening back up slowly today thankfully and theres a few other pieces not opened up fully yet but I'm sure they are fine.

    Getting tired of micro bubbles. Have none in my return chamber, thinking its my loc line. Anyone replace their loc line with regular pvc to get rid of bubbles and have success?

    Beautiful setup, did you use old rock from your transfer or new?

    Micro bubbles from the loc line were driving me nuts so I added a elbow and 3" straight piece to get the loc line fully submerged.

    I'll get a new fts soon.

    Bad news this morning, my pink spot anthias was dead when I woke up. His mouth was really wide open. Hadn't seen any bad signs, he had been eating very well and was always out and swimming around.

    Hey @slowngreen sorry to hear about the anthias. How's the rest of your tank doing?

    Had Brooklynella unfortunately. All my fish died except one firefish. Corals all doing well though. This weekend I will be doing a large WC.
    Its been about a month since everyone died. Any way of being pretty sure my tank is safe for any new fish? My remaining fish seems perfectly healthy.
    For now I'd just like to add another firefish for a companion.
