    I also recommend lanthanum chloride. Worked well for me.

    The guy was saying that he hasn't changed the water for two years!
    Poor yellow tang that was leaving there! But he looked fat and healthy!!

    Not having done water changes doesn't mean a whole lot. I have not done water changes in my 40b for almost 2 years now. I have to feed heavy or dose nitrates.

    Just test the water the rocks are in. If nitrates and phosphates are sky high, then you have an idea what you're in store for.
