Yep, I like that "personalized" communication. I was at the lfs
and the guy and I discussed I don't know how much stuff. We talked the whole time I was there which was about 2 1/2 hours I think. I learned alot and was able to ask questions right off. Instead of email and wait for response. I don't know how many questions I fired off at the poor guy LOL. Got him on a couple too lol, wasn't intending too, but you know what, when he didn't know he told me, he didn't try to bs is way through.
And he also steering me away from "blowing" money by suggesting that I NOT buy certain corals right now. So he was there not just for the buck but he genuinely want to help. For all this I think the extra money is worth it also.
Back to my tank:
1. I think one snail died, he hasn't moved since Saturday.
2. How do I know I'm placing my corals in the right locations? I don't see any shrinking or reaching, so I'm thinking I got them in the right lights but my elegance coral.....the way it's swaying is not a gentle graceful sway, it's more like if the flow is much stronger I'm gonna tip over. It's tenacles are almost parallel to the sand. I'm thinking they should be "gently flapping around in the wind and basically just "waving"". I've moved him each day so far, he still is doing good-color and fullness wise. But as I said, I don't think he should be "swaying" so MUCH.
Time for sleep, alarm in 3 hours, ride bike in and home on 12 hour shift....gonna be a long day
Oh also, my lights have 2 switchs. One controls 2 of 3 acintics and the other switch control the rest of the lights which is 3 10,000k and 1 more acintic. I bought a "timer" from DrsF&S. How should I set up the timer stuff? How many hours of what especially since my bulbs are separated weird. I thought with 2 plugs that it would be all white and all acintic, 3 bulbs per outlet plug but nope it's 4 and 2.
This is the time I got. I need to try to get this set up asap, cause when I leave at 4am and come home at 7p, I think that's a tad too long (15 hours give or take and hope no issues with my bike that made it a 16 1/2 day) for lights. Any ideas?
Sorry so long, gotta get everything out a once.
