Oh wait, I apologize to the OP for the hijack. I was not done intentionally. I ask all comments about my zoa garden be posted on my thread linked here in one of my posts.

You're the expert here, but to me it looks right. Do you dump the solutions at night because..the corals are feeding at night...or..just convenience? I'm also using B-ionic 2 part...do you put the solution in all at once or if you have an ATO, put it in there? Does it really matter if it's introduced slow or fast? Sorry to ask so many questions about your tank and not the person who started the thread.

Looks good! Wait until you get into the high end. It will get addicting fast! I personally have over 100 morphs of zoas, some of which I've paid over $100 per polyp. Figured I'd throw you a few pics of mine. Zoas are my addiction and I think it's great whenever someone wants to start a garden!

I drip it slowly and I read somewhere that dosing at night was better and that going nice and slow was also better. Been doing it that way for 3 months and everything looks good so... I'll stick to that routine

Oh I don't have a ATO

From top to bottom, Blue agaves, rasta, magician, sunny d, fire & Ice, Convict, everlasting gobstopper, and Fuel Paly.

You should also look up Utter Chaos, my clementines, Valentines Day Massacre, Red, Blue, and Purple hornet zoanthids.

See, my thing is, i knew i needed to make money back on my aquarium or else my wife would have my head for spending all the money i do. Now i constantly frag and sell on a local forum. For example, i just sold a sing polyp Tyree Space monster zoanthid for $50. At the same time, i get to grow out my zoa garden and enjoy it!
