    ah.. you have one of those side skimmers.. I think its a bit normal.. and ok to have that.

    as for the slime.. mine was the same 3 weeks ago.. now I only have one patch left... and now.. its totally green... another phase... no worry.. I had the same problems u had.. you might want to try a bit more flow.

    shoot the powerheads in an angle so they point the the middle of the glass.. you could also lower them a bit.
    maybe get another powerhead in the middle.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    sweet ! thats going to help alot, get it lower then the rest.

    i can't remember if in the previous posts I had mentionned to you to get crabs and more snails

    those will help alot.. I now have ~40 snails and 12 crabs.
    they clean up real good.

    see the pic of mine..
    notice the powerheads, 4 of them..

    2 802's on each side facing the front middle of glass,
    1 jbj2500 in middle pointing both ways,
    1 402 for surface agitation.

    thx !

    after looking at the pic.. I had'nt put the powerhead on the right.. but imagine its there

    I finally put lights in the sump.. so I moved the macro overthere. alot easier to work at night on the filters.

    sure.. or you could just add a piece of shrimp you get at the local fish market.. this will speed things up.
