    IMG_7233.JPG hi there. So I started a 40 gallon tank a couple weeks ago that will temporarily house fish during my DT relocation then become a frag tank. I used water change water from my DT and have a small protein skimmer. The tank was running great and water was clear... even out a few corals in to keep safe... about 4-5 days ago however it became COVERED in algae I couldn't see thru the glass and the rock looks like it has cyano. I did have some dry rock I put in could that have caused whatever this is? Any help is appreciated

    Ok I guess I was under the impression that if I used established water from my other tank it would bypass that whole thing. Big bummer. Therefore I would not be able to keep fish in there for a day or two while I move the tank?
