Keep up the work! I'm following!
Yeah, a lot of people on here will advise against it. Looking around elsewhere, a lot of people do it, and they look AWESOME. My plan is to have one fish, two shrimp, and a snail of some sort. I'm going to make the focal point the coral, so that's really where 90% of my research is going. I ordered the LED
fixture (it cost me 300 bucks) and I should have it mid next week. I'm about to buy the 50w Rena Smartheater as I type and a powerhead of some kind (maybe the Hydor Koralinia nano 240?).
I am a little concerned about the pH as it looks to be around 7.4-7.8. Can I control the pH in this tank like I can in my freshwater tank with crushed coral? I know I have very low pH and kH
from my tap, and Ive been topping off the Edge with de-chlorinated (with prime) tap water. I'm thinking this is why its a little low. Should I worry about this at all right now?
