Looks great, love to watch this grow big.

Did you use dry rock?

I used dry rock in main tank, but I also have just a few fresh live rock (never stay in LFS before) in refugium section.

Thanks. Actually, all SPS in tank are from the old tank, but their color change quite a lot which surprise me.

Thank you. This time the color is more KZ-like than old tank, but I will definitely watch out if they keep strong like in old tank.

I notice you have some brown sludge algae on your rocks, I went through this and a small amount of nitrate dosing usually clears up, if you wish to test it. You can use coral colour as an indicator of overdose

I have something similar recently growing on top of the coralline algae (i have BB tank no sand), just at the bottom of the tank, rock is clear, try Coral Snow mixed with Bio Mate, it doesn't work. I may give it a go with dosing Nitrate. What product do you specificlly dose? and what is the theory behing this if you won't mind to share? thanks.

Sorry shih87, I hope you don't mind me asking question here...

I like this scene a lot as well. Hope they grow well with bright color still.
Thanks.

It won't surprise me when choosing dry rock to start my tank. My Aplysia Californica (now up to three of them) and Salarias fasciatus did pretty good work of clean them. I would estimate another week all algae will be gone. However, thanks for the tip. Any theory behind it? I would like to learn..

I use Potassium Nitrate, but I make sure to adjust the dosage so as to not overdose K, the actual product I use is EasyLife Nitro.

The theory behind it is that when the tank is in a state of nitrate-limitation as many SPS tanks achieve while striving for the ultra-low free nutrient state we know provides great colors, the tank then starts to produce Ammonium in trace amounts and this specific species of dinoflagellates thrive in these conditions.

By dosing Nitrate you're allowing the tank to process and consume excess phosphates and nitrate before ammonium is produced, as well as altering the N:P ratio which seems to shift the balance of prevalent algaes and kill off the dinoflagellates. A side effect is that you'll reduce your po4 level by surprising amounts, and it is important to start dosing very slowly and read your corals for overdose and secondly algal growth.

One thing to notice is that this specific species of dino seems to be non-toxic when consumed unlike the common form, only exist when nutrients are very, very low and doesn't seem to react negatively to elevated PH treatment.

Indeed make totally sense. I will put this in mind if stay ULNS for too long.

BTW, this time, I use three Aplysia to clean my algae. They work very hard and clean most in two weeks.
