    Nice man! I see you got a bit of a Po4 problem. Are you running any Po4 media eg. Rowaphos? If not i suggest you do. This will also help in bringing out better colours in the corals :)

    Matthewis: It could be mate! Just test your water for PO4 and that'll give you your answer. Diatoms and sometimes cyano are part of a tank maturing. However its a good idea to tackle any phosphate issues straight away before the algae gets a foothold in such a nice tank! :)

    Yip,agreed. If you are doing a 10%water change per week and your tank is a juvenile, these bloom patterns are expected

    How old is the tank? Please let it mature before adding more stock.
