As far as I know Bangaii don't school. They'll basically kill each other until there's a pair left from what I understand.

My auto correct did not fix that! I'm very happy this tank has been set up for  years now, it's a simple set up . 3 power heads, 6 t5 bulbs, small skimmer that's not always working , tiny aqua clear filter with a bag of GFO , 3 fish , and a tea spoon of buffer once a week. The only thing I check is salinity when I do a 5 gallon h20 change monthly.

That's the sort of story that makes me want to reduce water changes and not upgrade my skimmer, lol.

Here's a recent photo , it's funny ,I might be getting the ACRO bug! Too bad most of the club members here have no more tanks that got me interested in this club,   yell1 :crazzzy:hard to find local sps !

I hope with my 6 new bulbs and my skimmer modification ( 802 power head with air pump feeding a sea clone skimmer) that I'll be able to make these new sps grow like my giant lps.
I just check salinity when I do my biweekly water change . I haven't checked my water in years, just a pinch of buffer or a scoop of calcium every few days

 I would keep the acro's as close to the top as possible. I had better luck keeping them in the 46 than I have had lately in the 150.The waivepiont 4 bulb I'm using in the 150 are not enough for them.I never used a skimmer in the 46;but I did do my water changes.

 They are now in a bucket with a MH sitting over them. They went from a white , to staring to get there color back. I do think lights make a difference .
I do wonder how others are doing keeping acro's using LED's .

The tank is not to tall and the acros are mounted about 10" from the light, I would think 6 t5' are enough to get them growing , my real problem is probably the phosphate levels

Good luck with the sticks Tony.  They can be a challenge.

A great many threats face reef environments.  An informed marine aquarist can be part of the solution, not a contributor to the problem.

ok. thanks. how do you do the peroxide thing? small syringe? do you need it colder to drop on it? regular household peroxide? I have had several outbreaks and it always came down to scrubbing it off. it was a fowlr so that wasn't a huge deal but I'd like to get some basic softies and lps in there so that won't be an option if it happens again. thanks for the info.

I've had luck taking the rock and just hitting the algae directly with peroxide, sometimes with a toothbrush. I use normal household stuff, like you get at CVS. I've read of people dosing tanks with it directly, or soaking rocks in water change water with peroxide in it. Lots of options.
