It's looking great so far! How do you like the gulf live rock? I started my tank with around 50 pounds and really loved all the stuff that came on it!
I actually used around 15 pounds of old LFS live rock (which I would assume originated from the Indo-Pacific). However, I am loving my Live sand from Gulf Live Rock so far for the looks and hitchhikers. Sorry if I was a little confusing, calling the sand Gulf Live Sand.It's looking great so far!

Here’s the Chaetomorpha back in early 2020 (January 10). That barnacle cluster in the background is not the same as the one I posted about earlier (though you might see it eventually…).And here is an old barnacle cluster from Amazon. Amazingly, a few sprigs of Chaetomorpha attached themselves to it (maybe through spores) in addition to other macroalgae.
You can find it here:
Edit: Yes, I am sure that is Chaetomorpha and not any other algae. I got a mound from the LFS a year ago (which fell apart, likely due to high flow) and the filaments of green algae in the above picture look exactly like the filaments in the mound I purchased (just in much smaller quantities).
