New to coral I'm addicted!

Here are some pics of my newest additions, I am so addicted. So, much for taking it slow. My Kenya tree already has a frag and the frag is looking good. 8)

Picking up a new T-5 fixture tomorrow.

I enjoy corals more than the fish.

Now you just need a tripod!

Yeah I took these pics quick with my PDA. We have a new nikon digital camera, just have not learned all the bells and whistles. Too busy with the aquarium.

Looks great. I am in the process of switching from FOWLR to a reef tank as well, and I cant wait to get it done. I have already gone broke just planning it! LOL.

Thanks.

Tell me about going broke, my accountant said I need to slow down for awhile. During lunch break picked up another t-5 light fixture. 8) That should be it for awhile. my plan is one fixture a month until I get 4. Half way there now.

Actually, I need to develop more of a plan for my tank based on compatibility and what I want the tank to look like long term. So far I have picked based on hardiness and lower light requirements. I need to be careful and take a look at long term compatibility. Right now I think the polyps are about the only thing that might spread to a point that could threaten another coral and that would take some time.

I also need to take some time to make sure my water chemistry is going to stay in line especially calc/alk. I picked up a product called B-Ionic based on another AA members advice. Calc is a bit low and alk well?????still figuring that out.

My plan now it to do alittle more research and continue to upgrade lighting until the new year and then GO NUTS! X-mas and B-day are a week apart. :P

Yup...that will happen. My wife loaths the day I brought home my first hairy mushroom colony Corals look good. Is the coral in the second pic a plate coral? If so, move it down to the substrate. They do tend to move a bit and it could end up falling from the rock. On the substrate just keep it "dusted", keep the substrate off the flesh.

Yes, I have it there for now due to the need to still increase my lighting. I will keep an eye on it. So far it has not moved and polyps are out and extended. 8)

What are your thoughts on using adhesives?
