    Brown Algae coming off of sand like a carpet

    Remove it. If some floats around in your tank after you vac it. use a net and play in the water awhile. Have fun. I have not had much of a problem with brown algae since I added a fighting conch and phosguard.

    I run whites for 9 and flourescents for 8 on a PC Flourescent. I get morning sunlight:happysun: 'til around 9AM through windows. I believe that can be good for corals and bad for algae. It took me awhile to adjust my timers to this and keep algae down. Now, my corals are growing. This may be...

    Moon Lights

    Jhnrb, I like that setup! I have a Power Compact Flourescent light fixture. The manufacturer of the moonlights don't recommend I mount them to it. It may over heat them. My light has 4 little fans blowing my kickin' AC and it doesn't feel hot enough to melt anything. I might go ahead and try...

    Red Sea Prizm protein skimmer

    skimmer Jasen, It's a SeaClone. I think the bubbles are because of the Prime I have added. I found my book and it troubleshoots it that way. I'm not sure what a bubble trap is. Thanks for helping me out. Burney
