and btw thats not an anemone, its torch coral
please dont jump to conclusions before reading the thread
You have UNDETECTABLE phosphate because it is all in you tank....As far as the torch coral (my bad on the anemone) it just look like it was melting in the one picture.....Im just curious why you keep on buying bleach or dead coral??? You should stop going to that fish store and if your getting water from there it could be what is causing your algae.....cause if they are selling you dead coral then they are probally not changing there filters! IM not trying to bust you chops but you ask for people opinions and if you all about having caulerpa growing threw out your DT then go for it...
looks like your moving along. love the pink birdnest and the purple monti.
i think what the other poster was trying to say was the reason your phosphates are untraceable is because your caulpera is using them before they can build up to a detectable level. but if it works for you and you enjoy the way your tank looks. then keep with it.
