    Hi

    This is my first post thanks to Seabass...

    I have had my tank running for seven months and just wanted to find out if its normal to have the brown algea and red algae growth im my tank?

    Also, I have introduced my first coral, a pin cushion and it was pretty happy at 1st but its tentacles has not opened for the past 3 days, is this normal?

    Hello and Welcom Imz

    Yes, leathers can take a couple of days to adjust. Just give it time.

    After 7 months most red slime algae issues should be gone.
    Maybe post a pic and more info on your set up, especially water flow in the display
