    Lol, you are right about leaving the tank along and yes, RBTA it's been in my tank for a month already and as soon as I put it in the tank it moved to a spot no visible.
    Now it's been where it is for couple of weeks.

    I guess I got lucky with my Rbta, he stayed right where I put him. I read that if you try and feed him a lot in the area you put him they'll stay there as they know there's a good source, so I fed him once or twice a day for 3 days or so.

    Yes I did, after many months of battling with algae and loosing corals left and right it looks like I've won the battle with the algae.
    Here is a pic of my tank from last Saturday before I took the rocks out.

    And this is how it looks right now after the re-scaping.

    I got tired of the wall looking of my scaping plus I had too much rocks.
    Decided to go with a more open spaces and as less rocks as possible, I really like what it ended up.
