I have a 10 gal
tank I set up with LS
from my 75 main tank. The 10 gal
was set up to house frags
from the main so I try to keep water parameters as similar as possible. CA
run 420-450 and alk
is 2.5-3 meg/l on both tanks. Specific gravity is 1.027 which is high but I have been lowering it slowly since getting my refractometer.
Display Lighting is 2x250 10k, 1 T5 50/50, 1 T5 actnic and the 10 gal
lighting is 2x32 PC
I have some xenia, anthelia and zoos in both tanks and the display tank has a lot better color and growth. Antheila and xenia in the display is a tan or gray color and in the 10 gal
, they are near white. I have some dark brown, yellow center zoos in the display and in the 10 gal
they are almost a bland yellow skirt and they don't open as full.
Could this be my bulbs vs. water? Any thoughts?
