Trying to fix pc issues. Apps all crashing. Only able to use I.e. and I wont use that for anything except search. Been down 3 days now. Be back soon I hope. I want to buy a few corals tomorrow can I get more than one at a time? Any recommendations? Please use link in my sig to see what I like so far. I didn't get a chance to name all the pics yet though. Thanks. P.s. using a phone to post stinks.

Id start with the Zoas
Or the Rics
Both are fairly easy to care for and will make your tank pop

Talking SHOPPING!!! Come on....Let's go...Jump on the Bus!!

Ok, I'm leaving shorting to go up north to Drs. F&S (aka live-aquaria/divers.den).

I'm not buying any fish today. I'm looking at corals to buy.

I'll check post before I leave store this afternoon.


Corals - I don't know how many yet, depends on cost, and well impulse, if it is calling me, I'm taking home (cost dependant) @Grizz I like those thank you (if you're on can you post the names). Hope they have some.

Wishlist (for now lol):
(Get a few today, but list is also so I can have them in one place.)

Help me pick a few to start with (some are REALLY expensive and those are for "the future")

DFS Certified Aussie Acan lord 3 Frag Pack - Aquacultured
Feather Duster (Sabellastarte sp.)
Giant Green Polyp Duncan
Ricordea Mushroom, Blue/Green (Caribbean) (Ricordea florida)
Colony Polyp, Neon Green (Zoanthus sp.)
Red Tip Tree Coral (Stereonephthya sp.)
ORAģ Hammer Coral (Euphyllia ancora)
Reef Hab Jupiter Lord (Acanthastrea lordhowensis)
Aussie Speckled Palys SM (Zoanthus gigantus)

Safecracker Colony Polyp Rock Zoanthus IM (Zoanthus sp.)
Starburst Polyps (Briareum sp.)
Aussie Snake Eyes Colony Polyp Rock Gigantus SM (Zoanthus gigantus)
Aussie Doughnut Coral (Scolymia australis)
Aussie Blastomussa Coral (Blastomussa wellsi)
Open Brain Coral Green (Trachyphyllia geoffroyi)
Aussie Duncanopsammia Coral (Duncanopsammia axifuga)


Coral care:

LOTSA HELP Here please!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Coral Dip, what kind?
(I didn't see any in the catalog)

Acclimation (link is cool (even u-tube lol) , so I do as I read/see), I bought the acclimation kit (set of 3) from them already, so anything else needed and then the how (link lol)

Buffers?
(there are too many for me to figure out what to start with, with all the this that and the other thing in them) Do these really maintain pH???? Like lower if needed or raise if needed?? I mean how does one bottle or what ever it is know what my pH is and adjust accordingly? Cause from what I read, that's what it appears to do. Same with alkalinity. Then it adds the this that and the other thing .....so how do I know what is good to add (don't want anything I can't test for) and what is not. I.E. needed/not needed.

Food/Supplements?


Do I need to get the tests for the other stuff too now? Like calcium, phosphate and stuff? Their Catalog has various tests.

CUC?

Shrimp, snails, urchins, crabs??
If so about how many? (No slugs, eweeeeeeeeee)

Crab - I like Emerald and PomPom
Shrimp - Peppermint

Thanks all gotta run, so I can get up there and start drooling.

as far as coral dip I use coral rx. i wouldnt worry about buffers just yet, wait and see how you water reacts.

Since you'llbe going corals now you'll need the following tests: Alkalinity, calcium, magnesium and phosphates.

Don't worry about food for your corals just yet, it's a personal decision whether to supplement their eating with actual coral food. I don;t and mine are growing very well.

The only corals you HAVE TO feed are non photosynthtic ones like sun polyps.

Hope that helped some

Kind of ironic that a sun polyp isnt photo dependant

I know right? I've just about killed mine. I feel so bad about it too. I try to feed it all the time but it never opens, sometimes a little bit but nothing like it should.

I don't think I'll be getting another one. :-(
