Sorry to change the subject a bit but, 20 20, how many gph does the overflow do compared to the mag 5 because it says the overflow does 600 gph but the pump maxes out at 500 gph. How does this work for you? Thanks a bunch!

Works fine. The overflow can handle 'up to' 600 gph, less than that is fine. The problem would occur if the pump put out MORE than 600 gph, then the overflow wouldn't be able to keep up with the pump, and the sump would get drained. So, my mag 5 is well within the capabilities of the overflow.

Marc118, thats a nice tank. I'm diggin the carnation coral! How hard is that to take care of?

FishFrik- Yeah I know its a boring clam, but when it gets too big I'll put the rock on the bottom. I know maxima's dont do well underneath PC's. Well thats what I've read and what I've heard also. I really dont want to test for myself because that can get expensive! The clam that I have now looks really awesome. I wish I could get a picture of it from in front of it or the top, but I can't get a decent picture that way. It looks bright neon blue from the front and if you look down on it from the top it is a bright aquamarine blueish green. Really cool! I would recommend one if you can get one. I know what you mean about shops that arent the best of LFS's. I get all my corals at one like that but the key is to get them before they ever hit the tanks! He has really good deals on his corals so I can't pass them up.

Do you have to spot feed it? What kind of lighting do they require?

Very low lighting needs, they do like a good amount of flow. They prefer to be hung upside down under a rock. I feed it directly with a turkey baster usually twice a day. But I also dose phytoplankton into the tank in general.

I have PC lighting. Can you give me an idea of the degree of difficulty for the frogspawn and torch? Also, I notice that you have some sort of goniopora or something. Can you give me an idea how hard/easy it is to take care of it?

The torch coral is a fairly easy coral IME. It gets food from my plankton as well as bits of mysis when I feed the fish, its doing great. Same goes for the frogspawn. They are both fast growers if you keep your water quality high and stable.

Here is a great site on goniopora. http://www.goniopora.org

I have a pretty stable amount of pods in my tank and it seems to feed off them, I plan on adding more as needed. As well as concentrated plankton.

ntswift, i've read that crocea requires even more like than maxima does 0.o In fact it's the most lighting requiring species of tridacnid clam.

marc, ur growing caul. algae in ur tank? wouldn't they grow out of control and harm ur coral? you also have a flower pot. Did u know that they have a very low survival rate in captive? just trying to help
