    What do you guys think of my plans.

    Skimmers and ATS do NOT do the same thing An ATS creates an area to grow algae on to remove PO4 from the water column. Skimmers remove small particulate matter like fish poo.

    Macro Alage ID site

    I just got in some live rock from to add to the biodiversity of my tank. Amazing stuff, if it grows on rocks this stuff has it. I want to be sure to fully remove and non desirables on it. Anyone know of a good site to ID macro algae?

    Pukani Rock leacing PO4 like mad

    Thanks Steve. I really don't deserve the credit though. I just came here looking for help and the amazing people that make ReefCentral what it is are the ones that really deserve the credit. I think the thanks should go to Tom for suggesting the LC dosing and offering his insights

    TEK Elite 6 bulb Fixture

    I run a 6-bulb TEK (not an elite) on my 120 and have no problems with sps in the upper 2/3 of the tank. I haven't placed any on the bottom yet but I'm sure they would do fine. With 6" less depth you can do SPS with no problem

    GFO vs Hi Capicity GFO

    I'm getting ready to pick up some GFO from BRS and I'm wondering what others thoughts are on the Hi Capacity GFO. Is it worth twice the price of the regular GFO?
