  1. Looks like cyanobacteria growth. Here are suggestions to help. Use a small siphon tube to remove as much as you can. Change about 20 percent of your volume. Use high quality carbon in a filter. Increase the water flow. Reduce your feeding amounts. Cut your lighting time. The bacteria is a sign of excessive nutrients in the water causing water quality to drop. The water change will dilute. Siphoning to remove as much as possible to reduce growth. Reduction in feeding will slow the nutrients added to the water. A skimmer will also help remove excessive protiens lowering nutrients. High quality carbon will increase the water quality. It may take several water changes but you should see results in a week.

    Beach Time

    Cindy and I were out at dawn Sunday, walking the beach also. Just pulled these out from being cleaned. There were sea hares and sand anemones in the tide pools and quite a bit of algae in the tide. Sent from my XT1080 using Tapatalk

  9. There are many members that have frags for sale depending on the condition of your tank. I have some fairly tough to kill palys if you are looking for something to start with. Text me at 724 991-1255 I'm in East Fort Myers
  10. I have paly's, zoa's, mushrooms, leathers, star polyps, clove polyps and gorgonians some made into frags or can make the size you want. What size is your aquarium and what are you looking to have in it? Brian

  15. Bring a bucket, 2-5 gallons. Battery operated aerator if you have a distant commute. A hand towel is nice if you start ripping open sponges. A smaller perforated container can be helpful to keep crabs and shrimp separated. Typical beach items, you can end up walking a couple miles up and down the beaches on Sanabel, decent surf shoes help.
