    I'm just as confused as you but I think people move on when things don't get answered.

    Hey

    Well lets just say the name comes for the fact that I've got a way (but only if I want to) to annoy people:razz:, haha thus the name. Thanx for the warm greeting, Deffinetly ask you guys if I want to purchase something but my tank is set for the moment, maybe just gonna add some corals, but for now just another patience game and see how things turn out!

    Yup, WELCOME to MASA from me as well :thumbup:

    If I'm not mistaken there are now two members from Hoedspruit. You connected to the scareforce, or perhaps the owner of a hunting farm (drool...)

    Hey

    I forgot to give my tank specs:

    85 cm by 45cm by 45cm
    3 fluorescent lights and 4 bulb fixtures
    about 10kg live rock
    Eheim canister filter
    1100L/H powerhead

    Fish:
    2 x African clownfish (black)
    2 x Yellowtail damselfish
    1 x Powder blue tang

    Corals:
    Frogspawn
    Sun coral
    Tree coral
    Bubble coral (pearls)
    Mushrooms
    Xenia
    Polyps
    Trumpet coral
    A orange coral that I don't have a clue of whats the name
    Plate coral ( the pet shop said it's a plate coral but I don't agree)

    Inverts:
    Hermit crab
    Cleaner shrimp
    a Naudibranch ( came with the live rock)
    Fan worm
    a clam of some sort

    Ya my tank has been running for the past 6 months but still the ocasional algae bloom, I try to work it out with water changes but where I live it's hard to always have a ready batch of salt water...

    Getting rid of that cannister filter will go a long way in solving your algae blooms.

    That tank is also too small for a powder blue tang, IMHO.
