Here is my photo from 1 Aug, had a lot going on this month but not much change in the tank.  I moved most of the corals out until I figure out what I want to put in and where.  Currently dealing with a bubble algae outbreak and have no idea why.  Have never had to deal with it before.  In the next month I plan to add pictures of corals I have added.

This months tank photo.  As you can see the rockscape keeps changing.  I am battling bubble algae. When i see a breakout on a rock, I remove the rock and dry the rock out to kill the algae.  Don't know if this is a good way to deal with it but not sure what else to do.  I tried to remove by sucking out the bubbles but that makes it worse.  I do have a couple emerald crabs but they don't keep up with it.

do some reading on a product called Vibrant.  Reported to work well on bubble algae.

Hydrogen peroxide. Cheap at the dollar store. Get a syring or pipette and pull some peroxide into the applicator of choice and with pumps on feed mode just slowly broadcast it over the area of algae. Watch it over the next couple days as it turns white and then clear and finally disappears. If you have massive amounts then vibrant will work but you must be patient and only dose as recommended on the bottle. Peroxide would be my first choice . It works and is easy.

I had some really bad bubble algae and found that emerald crabs will keep it in check rock about 3 months

So I lost my Marineland 93 cube this month; buyer beware for this brand.  Fortunately User  Topekoms, thank you, gave me a 75g tank.  I suffered some losses but saved a lot.  Got rid of my frag tanks for now and put everything in the same tank.  It may be more fun to watch every thing grow in one tank.  Also, traded my Aussie Gold torch for a couple torches from Sonny and bought an SPS pack from Dustin.  So here is a look at the new tank!
