Getting into Corals

Ok, so I am about to buy 9 Zoanthid coral frags for $89. Along with that 1 Green and Red Ricordia, this will bring the total to $99. I know my skimmer isn't up to par, which is why I am also purchasing a ASM G2. This is all in the cart and I am about to enter my billing information.

So for the most part all I will need for feeding is Light, trace elements, iodine, and some micro invert food, right?

Am I missing anything, I want to know if I am missing anything before I click the submit button.

Thanks,
Max

Careful on the dosing iodine, it's not recommended because it can be easily overdosed since there isn't a really good test kit for iodine for consumers to use. Regular water changes will replenish trace elements inculding iodine.

Buy the corals

Yeah I am aware of this fact, I do have some iodine, and I add about a capful about every 2 months for my 75 gal, I have doing this for some time now, and my inverts have been doing great. I have been using less and less of it, but if I notice any adverse effect then I will start using it again.

Thanks for the heads up though.

You should get great frags! I have gotten 9 zoo frags and 3 digita frags from the same place. They are the nicest zoos in my tank. I got some with Orange centers, red centers, red skirts and pink centers, Burgandy skirts with white centers. I will buy from them again

Great! I wasn't sure about them, but I like to assume I can trust someone for the most part. I was looking at their clams... all I can say is woah... CHEAP! a 4 inch clam for only $30 thats a deal if I ever saw one!
