Sure, it can be controlled, though I once had some iridescent blue dictyota growing in a Refugium and loved it. Tell us more about your particular problem or post a pic.

Aquarium Related Classifieds : ISO PRIME FLEX MOUNTS

Just FYI, I used some stiff metal strapping, the kind plumbers use to hold pipes in the ceiling.  This particular metal strapping is also plastic coated. It works like a charm to hold the AI Prime right where I want it and it cost me nothing because I already had it in my shop. A friend of mine hung his two AI Primes from the ceiling with wires. I have hung lights from shelf brackets and decorative plant hanging brackets attached to the wall behind the tank. The Prime has a place for a fine thread bolt to connect the metal strapping or a bracket. Another friend bought an AI bracket on EBay for something like $25. Just thought you could use the information. Have a great day.

Tank Threads : speyside's new 90 gallon reef build!

I bought a couple zoa frags at The Fish Tank, making the first corals in this tank. My plan is to buy mostly frags and wait for the grow out.

My anemone decided to make the wrong side of the tank his home, where neither he nor the clown fish can be seen from the front. I've been trying to encourage him to move to a more visible spot with some flow adjustments, I think I am finally making progress. I aimed a small power head right at him. Not enough to damage it, but just enough to piss it off so it would go looking for a new home. I think it worked because he was starting to move tonight as the tank lights were going off for the night. Fingers crossed he is front and center in the morning.

Tank Threads : speyside's new 90 gallon reef build!

Made some more progress on the tank this week. I installed 2 BRS dosing pumps inside the cabinet, ran the lines through the wall to my "fish closet" and mixed up my first batch of 2 part. I haven't actually dosed any yet, planning to measure my calcium and alk tomorrow to gauge how much I should dose. I bought a digital timer to run the pumps the right amount of time.

Next I followed some of Mark's advice. I was regretting not painting the back of the tank black before installing it. Mark suggested hanging something black behind the tank to solve this. I ended up using a black garbage bag, the thick contractor type. I taped it to the back edge of the tank and taped the bottom corners in place. It was a little tricky to snake it in front of all the wires and plumbing, but it came out looking pretty good in the end. You can see a crease or two where the bag was folded, but I'm hoping the creases will go away with some time.

I also added a little bit of life to the tank. Jeff down at The Fish Tank hooked me up with some chaeto for my refugium and a bottle of tigger pods. I got some pods in the mail from algaebarn.com too along with some live phyto plankton. Algaebarn seemed pretty expensive to me but they had a buy 1 get 1 free going for first time users so I ended up with 2 of everything.

Since I didn't start with any live rock at all I'm having to specifically buy each of the "critters" I want in the tank. Luckily the chaeto I got from Jeff had some amphipods running around in it. I will probably buy some calerpa too in hopes of getting a little more bio diversity going.

I've lost 5 of 7 Reef Octopus DC pumps.  3 within 1 year, 1 at 18 months and 1 at 24 months.  Ended up swapping everything to Ecotech recently.  Good luck lol

Excellent recommendation on the Reef Octopus Pump. Received and installed it on Friday and love it. Absolutely silent! The float switch it comes with lends that extra piece of mind I believe all reefers are fond of as well.
