    Great Wiz, there's life everywhere.
    I also keep a corner for the shells, but without frag plugs... I guess it's a natural calcium reactor.

    Thanks. I like havin a spot for loose coral to attach on its own. Also provides a home for worms and pods. My mandarin uses it as a feeding ground. :)

    1. The tank is recovering so well, and my fuge is going strong. Ive noticed a drop in fauna but not all gone. I'm sure it will recover.
    2. Kinda stinks, I love the look of my fuge full and overgrown but I know the algae underneath is just dying. Starved. Plus its nice only trimming once a month. I wonder how loosing so much macro at once affects the balance....
