Less Alive Rock? by StringerBell
I put my rock in a newly set-up tank about 48 hours ago. I figured what initially appeared on the rock would continue once I got it submerged, I can already tell that there has been some die off since putting it in. Some of the "green" areas have receded. Some of the protrusions seem to have...

Diatoms by KurtG
My diatoms are back. I replaced the material in my phosphate reactor which knocked them back for a few days, but they rebounded again. My nitrates and phosphates are both undetectable. I'm thinking this is silicates although I'm still waiting the arrival of my test kit. I thought my RO/DI unit...
