Cool! They seem to be doing fine so far! But if you or anyone has any advice on keeping them it would be much appreciated!

Looks like some pretty hardy starters for your tank. They will do nice.

Yeah I asked my LFS to recommend me starter corals and these are the ones I picked! What should I all be testing my water for now? I just want to make sure I have all the correct tests
