Water quality, lighting, filtration and flow are the key for all saltwater aquariums.

Coral:

Are you buying the pistol and the goby paired? Or separate?

Separate but using the goby and pistol shrimp information that is found on reefs to go.

Probably over feeding.

Ammonia 0
Nitrite .5

Been feeding three times a day. Gonna cut back to 1-2. And see what happens to the numbers.

3 times a day? I feed my corals and my fish every other day. That could be your problem with your ammonia and nitrate. Try to feed them once a day, every other day.

Gone reef! 1 hour in of acclimating. Read up on fragging leathers. It was already two connected stems. Split them, and then trimmed one again because I didn't realize they were connected and one clip from the large toadstool top. I expect 3 of 4 pieces to do well.

The one cut was just cleaning up my first frag cut.

Looking forward to seeing how they do under the lights.

Edited-- went from UGLY brown at Petco to a decent purple in its first 15 minutes under lights.
