Those are dragons breath, gracerlaria n green grape macro algea. I have to give them away almost every month or feed it to my tangs.

Am I the only one who can't see a picture?

Any tips for keeping BTA's happy in a tank this size?

Gibbous you might be...i dont dose anything n i try not yo overfeedmy fish. I have two paired n a clarkii clown, yellow watchman goby n a red scooter blenny. I ususlly do a 5g water change every two months.

That's my kind of maintenance routine... Wish I could see the picture but do you have any coral in the tank, particularly the stony types that would need the cal/alk maintained? Are water changes needed less frequently with the macros assisting in nutrient export? What are your usual nitrate levels?

Hope you don't mind all the questions but I've got a 40 gal running that is going to be a BTA tank with maybe a few softies once it matures a little, still trying to work out my stocking and maintenance strategy.

I would think the macro algea does help. I do not test my parameters. I have a colony of duncan, finger leather n a green toadstool, xenia n mushrooms. i just recently place a red montipora n seems to be growing fine. Try clicking on the link n see if it opens for you.
