Fairly new to the salt water aquarium, but have recently set up a 20 gallon tank. I was wondering when I would be safe to start introducing soft corals.
I currently have two small black oscellaris clownish.
There were also a few critters that came with the live rock. I ended up with 2 elephant snails, around 4 feather duster worms, and many others I haven't been able to identify yet.
Everything in the tank seems to be going ok at the moment, there has been no visible die off at any stage of cycling, and everything is eating well and keeping the tank relatively clean. The live rock surface is about 60% purple/pink algae, I have approx. 17 pounds of this in tank.
The guy at LPS
advised waiting at least 6 months before attempting to add any corals.. Is there anything that can be safely added before this amount of time? Tank has been established for around 2 months.
Tank is also fitted with 1x 24 watt white globe and 1x 24 watt marine blue actinic globe.
Sorry for the long read, appreciate the advice in advance
