I'm getting my first corals this week and I was wondering what, if any, stock limitations there are. What I want to know is, is it kinda the same thing for adding corals as adding fish, meaning I have to wait 3-4 weeks to add new ones? Tax refund season is here and I wanted to dip in to some of mine before my wife decides she needs more clothes,shoes, etc.
The corals I'm getting this week are 2 blue mushrooms and one colony of of blue zoas. Since I received this refund, I wanted to step it up to include a toadstool leather and maybe some LPS
. I know that calcium and magnesium levels will be key as well as PH and alk
(I have test kit for calc, gotta get mag still) and I will be using the B-Ionic 2 part buffer system once I get the corals in and figure out how much they are consuming.
I don't know if my tank params are relevant to my question but I'll post them anyway just in case.
Current tank params:
: 6.72 KH
(using red sea alk
test kit with reading of 2.4 then mult by 2.8 to get KH
, reading taken approx 30 mins before lights out)
(currently running phos sorb to get it to 0)
