Definitely exciting. I have three blue damsels in there so far. My cleanup crew will arrive tomorrow. I am putting a few corals in tomorrow as well. How do you take the corals off the frag plug?

Brought home 8 corals out of my tanks at work to put in the 40. I'm at therapy now. I will up load pics tomorrow once they are open.

Since I got home late last night I acclimated the corals and just set them in the sand. I will place them where on the rock today. They are not happy right now so I will take pics after I get them on the rock and they are open and happy.

I totally forgot about power heads. Last night I'm scrambling around looking for anything that can create some flow. I found two water small power heads that I am using until I can get the right ones for my tank. No wonder my corals are unhappy. 😱

Well I lost three of the corals that I brought home from work. The frogspawn, the torch and the green birds nest. I am having a hard time trying to figure out the best settings to use on my light. I think I had it set to high. Ugh.

Its the Euphotica 24 inch full spectrum led. I had it set at 80% blue/color and 50% white my birdsnest bleached out and the frogspawn and torch just slowly died. I reduced it to 50% blue/color and 35% white. I am making the assumption that it's the light setting because my birds nest bleached out.

You sure it bleached and the tissue didn't peel away? I've had several do that. Did you acclimate them to the tank?
