Well I don't know how we got onto corals or what salt you use or uv
's, I just wanted to know peoples suggestions for placement of powerheads but I think we've got it worked out. If you want to go into corals, yep we have some, the hardy ones, we have a pipe organ coral that had about a quarter of it covered with polyps, now it is more than half, we have a toadstool leather that when we bought it had some dark brown almost black spots on it and is now a beautiful golden brown and we have a beautiful giant cup mushroom that was sold to us as a ricordea but it's isnt' after getting Aquarium Corals by Eric H. Borneman after a book recommendation from Reefrunner. We also have a large piece of Maiden's hair, and our nitrates are at 2.5 . I think everyone does what they feel is best and what they have learned from doing research, we've done our research too and are continuing to do more as we go, we were just asking for advice for water movement to help remedy something that isn't exactly that attractive to look at, but it's not all over the tank, just one area, it's easy to remove by hand. Oh and for the record, our Ph has always been at 8.2 and we have coraline growth but it's on our rocks, not on the walls of our tank, even our snails have coraline growth to the point you don't know they are on the rocks.
Good luck with your upcoming additions to your tank, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do ours.
And I've had some great information from this site especially from they guys that run this site and the advisors, they have always been there to help us. I guess that's why we keep coming back. :P
