After debating and going one way, then the other. i finally got a few corals. This happened because a lady my wife works with fired up a tank and I made her a deal on the red knob star, and the 2 cowries I had. She cycled the tank and these were the first guys in it. It is a FO
tank and she uses ro
water and IO salt. The livestock is in good hands.
The corals I picked up are a Scolymia button, glove polyps,eagle eye zoas, curvata trumpet, and a sun coral.
The readings are amm 0, trite 0, trate 10 or less, phos 0, calc 500, dkh
10, mag is 1300, sg
1.024. Oh and I use 8x39w t5ho lamps 4 1200k and 4 14000k.
Should I get kits for strontium and Iodine?
Everything seems to be doing fine, have had them for about 3 days and colors look good. I'm most proud of the sun coral because the night after I got it, I seen the polyps opened up, made a cap, and 2 cubes of mysis went bye bye.
I would like to try a clam of some sort, with the lights I have, what would be a good recommendation?
