Yeah, your substrate looks very coarse. I would replace it with fine sand if I were you. Detritis (uneaten food and fish poopoo) settles inbetween those big pieces and cause high nitrates which leads to nuisance algae and unhappy corals. Replace a 1/4 at a time waiting a week or 2 inbetween to give the new fine sand a chance to get covered with pods and bacteria. You can use Reggies playsand - just wash it decently until white ;)

ML : I see that you has posted some pics of your tank in a pervious thread. The question about your substrate was also raised.

Just my opinion : You may not be particularly fond of the fine white sand, but it is soooo much better for your overall water quality. If the fine sand doesn't suit you , then perhaps just go for a bare bottomed tank.

By the way :Have you tested your water recently ? What are your water parameters ?
