    Thanks! Here's the first "wide" shot of the tank :D

    Also, got this little "flower" at reefapalooza but don't know what it is...

    We've been having an algae issue, and the tank might be on the cold side... 71.7ยบ F

    Consistency is most important for temps. That pick looks like a clove polyp

    So we're about to move our tank... from our workspace to the house, going to do some research and post a plan... Any tips are greatly appreciated! ( just when our toadstool coral started to look happy) Once it's home, I'm going to start posting more regularly, being new to the hobby it's been a ton of fun to learn along the way, and want to keep a better record for newbies to benefit from.

    Have a spare 10g tank or something you can keep live stock in at home? Would make your job a whole lot easier.
