    +1. Don't kid yourself, if you really want a Galaxia, get a bigger tank or a 2nd tank for the galaxia. Finding corals that can 'withstand' the sting = many coral deaths. Absolutely not worth it.

    I don't know much about Bio-cube.

    Galaxia corals are pretty aggressive so I'm not sure if you want to place them in a confine tank. There a lot of corals doesn't like being stings so might not be a bad idea to not have it.

    I'm feeling very sad and mad at myself today. Toothlesss, my medium clown fish had pass away. I just discount her stuck between the glass and rock, in the left corn front, bottom of the tank. I feel so guilty and it felt like it's my fault, it probably is...

    I did another 2 gallon water change on Tuesday and my most of my corals open up now. The down side is hair algae, iono how i get it. I haven't really feed my tank since I lost two of my fish. Any idea? I use RO/DI water so it shouldn't be the case.

    Maybe a snail or something died and spiked your nitrates?

    Update:

    Over this past week, I notice my corals are huge than before. I compared from 48watt, 70watt and 150watt, the 150watt sure made the corals much larger. My two frogspawn head are 4-5 inches diameters. One of my Green Stripe Mushroom is 4 inches large diameters. The only issue I have, is Hair Algae. They are annoying me and I have to clean and scrape them all time. I visited Steve shop,(Lucky Ocean) and bought some 6 Narcissus and two 2 Cerith snails.. Hopefully they will help me out too. I'm worry the cerith snails might climb over the glass. hahaha

    Nassarius snails are scavengers and don't eat algae. I wouldn't count on them eating any, but if you have food and other organic stuff like uneaten food that's causing high nitrates & phosphates they'll help with removing that stuff. You might want to consider more than 2 snails if the 2 don't make much of dent in it.
