    I'll do a check on my levels but, purple up from what I know of it says that it will increase coraline algae and help prevent brown algae which I'm getting quite a bit of.

    Purple up is also a type of calcium supplement. That is why I asked about your current calcium levels and dosing.

    If you use it without testing your calcium, you can make your parameters even more unstable leading to even more algae.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I figured I would post an update on this thread:
    I have in my total stock now: A Purple Firefish, A Royal Gramma, my two clowns, and a Green Manderian. (I've had for a few months now and he's all fat due to stocking the tank every few months with pods.)

    Currently coral wise I have two small frogspawns, a torch, 1 acan, a Green candy cane, and twothat I'm not sure of the names.

    So, its been a while since I last posted, I figured I'd do a quick update on what I have in my tank now.

    First off, I've switched my lighting from the 4bulb t5 fixture I had and went a Radion Gen 3 LED setup.
    I've removed the prizm skimmer, and went to an AquaC remora.
    Stock is as follows:
    2 Peppermint shrimp
    2 Oc. Clowns
    1 Pygmy Angel
    1 Firefish
    1 Royal Gramma
    1 Turbo (will be getting two more, my others kicked the bucket in a bad nitrate spike I had)
    20 Nassarius snails
    1 fighting conch


    Current Corals:
    1 Tubbs blue
    2 Torch corals, 1 head each
    1 Frogspawn
    1 Toadstool
    1 purple acan
    1 Pink Zoa
    1 La Lakers zoa, 1 polp though
    1 (some red zoa with blue edges)
    1 two headed green candy cane

    I've also added a 10g sump/refudge to the stand.
    Heres a current FTS, IMG_3611.jpg
