    I need to get a new 35mm camera, I currently use a app for my iPad that helps but colors tend to be to vivid when using it but without it my pictures look just like what you posted.

    I'll try this photdump thing to give u an idea what im dealing with for algae and coral growth. 2 in 1..

    I've raised all over 2 weeks up to 10 from 7.5ish. Blasto and zoas not happy.

    Zebra'z fin is healing nicely from the powder brown attack last month.

    Corraline is starting to spread on the back glass. Hopefully it's outconpetes the crap green sludge I'm dealing with

    Corals are looking great ! !

    I dosed a bunch of pods and phyto and most of the algae tufts I had growing disappeared over night last night. Something to try maybe? Got them from a guy probably not too far from you in western MA.

    Spoke with Paul today. Meeting him tomorrow for phyto and pods. Thank u sirs.

    Decided to go into Turkey Baster full contact war with the algae. It comes off with a simple squirt. Poly change, water change, and canister sponge cleaning tomorrow. We shall see how it goes.

    Did he tell you how to add them? All pods at one time at night with turkey baster into rocks/sand and then feed phyto at 3-5ml per 10 gal every 3-5 days I think?
