I took a couple glances at your tank. I dont think much will make it. How did you (apply the peroxide???....) Now I might be wrong but that is way too much at once. I thought I over did it with 10 snails and 10 crabs roughly in a 75 gal. @ week 3 Just keep an eye on the parameters. I dont think you have the water stability to handle any type of coral. Just my rookie opinion. I would step back and do some research and make sure to remove anything if it looks like it is dead.

Also I am having a problem with this right now and am combating it. Right now I can tell your nitrates are extremely high as well as phosphates. You are starting to get what is called hair algae. I would add some sort of phosphate remover or pheric oxide. How long do you leave your lights on?

Are you using the test strips because they are very inaccurate that is my own experience with FW. Also API is okay Salifert is better as far as Calcium and Alk go... Those would be your main ones since you are just starting out. You do have Nitrates you can tell just by looking at your tank. They may be low however you definitely have phosphates that need to be rid of. Only reason I know this is because parts of my tank looked like that a while ago. I did have a hair algae problem like I said and am just added some fluval phosphate tonight only until I can get my pheric oxide sponge type media.
