Yep, the plan, good or bad is to do a mixed reef of a few corals and macro together... Is there anything that says I shouldn't?

I figure the majority or corals will be zoas, mushrooms, clove polyps, the trumpet I already have, and maybe a toadstool. I'm thinking like 10 total corals in the tank.

Any advice?

Sounds good to me! I'm assuming because it's you that you are going to be using LEDs so I don't think you will have a problem with that.

Well, truthfully I'm going to be using the stock PC's at first, then move to an AI sol modded into the hood.

Today I did a large PWC to reduce nitrates.

Next steps, please advise if you see something wrong.

1) tomorrow morning test water - if high trates, another large pwc, if good:

2) add purigen, chemipute elite, and filter floss to media rack; continue with lights OFF

3) test water on Monday, if parameters are good, move Chromis to BC, turn lights ON to normal cycle

4) monitor params with Chromis, and adjust as needed - pwc on Sunday.

5) receive macro algae shipment; if BC params are acceptable, add chaeto to fuge, with light set at opposite of DT, scape tank with macro

6) continue to test through weekend for parameters, etc. PWC on Sunday.

7) Monday test again, it parameters are stable, dip and transfer corals to BC

8) monitor throughout week. PWC on Sunday.

9) following Monday, add angler to BC 29

10) visit LFS and purchase assorted mushrooms, glove polyps, and zoos - dip, and add to tank

11) monitor on regular schedule while continuing normal maintenance schedule - continue feeding techniques to get to frozen

The first (2) steps are complete:

1) tomorrow morning test water - if high trates, another large pwc, if good:

2) add purigen, chemipute elite, and filter floss to media rack; continue with lights OFF

Tested this afternoon and 0,0, 20 so I did another PWC of (8) gallons or so, close to 30% and I went ahead and added in the media rack of Purigen, Chemipure Elite and the floss on top.

THANK GOD that I rinsed both the purigen and the CPE... The purigen had a little crap in it, but the CPE, turned my sink BLACK.

Anyway, just got back home and everything appears to be in order, so I'll wait till Monday, and onto step 3.
