They look great!

I have a school of coralline wrasse's that pester mine every evening looking for worms that hide in them. Guess its worth them getting irritated to get rid of worms.

They are very sensitive to phosphates. Needs to be well below .1 They will probably recover.

Very true. I have 0 phosphates and for some reason I always come in at .05 nitrAtes.

Same here! I think 0.5 Trates is a good thing. I know that my dendros hate a super clean tank. I think my zoa polyps open larger with a little nitrate as well. When I say little, I mean a little. Lol

Phosphates do need to be 0 however, Walmart has a TDS meter for 10$ in the filtration section. I see more growth and color since adding a phosphate reactor as well. Only 40 for a reactor at BRS or 60 with a pump.

This is a summer luvin Paly I ordered from zoanthids.com. At 170$ per head, I was having a bad week when it wouldent open, the phosban reactor from twolittlefishies has brought it back. Here is a pic from last night. Have some Spider-Man's on it as well.

Beautiful paly but your right I was watching a few lectures and I guess soft corals need trace amounts of trates for proper growth like .02-.05 ppm

Edit* and yes on my off time I watch lectures..exciting right lmao
