Come to find out i moved my live rock with that on there and it wasnt blue no more i guess it was my lighting, It was a clearish brown color i guess just the reflection of the lighting did that. Draco is that u Paul? I dont know if u remeber me but we used to talk all the time through yahoo messenger. But over the weekend i got my clean up crew. 5 red / blue Hermits, and 3 margarita snails. Im probably gonna get more but i just want my bioload to handle it with out crashing. here are some more pictures over the weekend as u can see in some of them my purple coralline algae is coming in, and i have alot of lime green coralline algae to.
