Coralline algae and Jar reef

Typically I do a lot more research on things like these but there's not a lot on Xenia care itself. Most of the things just say water parameters and that's just about it. Not much on lighting or temp. I mean there could be more to be seen on google but I haven't found it yet...

Ok I looked at the link. Not so sure how good of Xenia person I'm going to be... At least of I make any mistakes I'll learn from them. What can I do to keep the water chemistry the way it should be?

25% water changes every 2 weeks should keep good stable params. Ive read through this whole thread and it seems like you aren't doing much research on your own. I highly recommend reading up a little before you jump into this. My friend next door as a 40 gallon reef and all he did was research for about 4 months. You can answer a lot of your questions on your own with a quick google search. I would recommend at least getting an aqua clear 30 for your tank for some filtration. Not super necessary before you get fish but after you do you'll need one for sure. A filter is a piece of equipment that you need for sure for some water movement and particle removal.

Many many many people run a reef tank without a true filter, myself included.
