So im converting my 55gal fowlr
over to reef. Nothing spectacular, just leathers, xenia, and some others. I already have my lighting in RO
water setup. My questions are:
-Ive been using Instant Ocean salt, now that im putting corals in, do I NEED to switch salts (to Reef crystals maybe) or just bump the salinity up a bit?
water I have is a different Ph than it is after I mix it with salt. For top-offs should I worry about the Ph difference when using it as freshwater topoff?
-How often should I be doing water changes with (and w/o) corals?
SPECS- 55gal-60Ilb. Live/Dead rock mix-refugium with different macroalgeas-NO sump/Skimmer-50gph HOB
Thanks ! any help is appreciated
