    Saw some baby yellow tangs when I was at Violet last Friday. Seem to be reasonably priced too for the current market, $140. They are little guys, maybe a little more than half dollar:

    BRS Screen Lid Extras

    Have 4 extra angle brackets, rubber rope and about 40”x80” plus extra mesh. It is the 1/4” size mesh. Just thought I would ask if anyone could use it before tossing it. Unfortunately I don’t have extra frame pieces. If it is not claimed by Sunday to the trash it goes.

    Just thought I would share my experience to others also battling bubble algae. A couple of before images to give you an idea. Pretty much the entire rock plus most frag plugs were like this: I would siphon the rocks bare, but inevitably it would grow back. In March I decided I would try...

    So I am thinking of adding some more rock to refresh my aquascape. My question is, is this a good idea? Should I go with live or dead or dry or some other kind of rock? Any tips or advice would be much appreciated :)
