i have a ton of questions!!!
first, when i purchased my LR
(about 3 weeks ago) it was beautiful with purple and green algae coating it, but now it seems to be growing brownish fuzz. is that a normal part of the aging process? is it harmful to the fish, ie will it spike my ammonia?
second, i have on order a green star polyp coral, i dont remember the exact name. my LFS
reccommended it to me. is there anything in particular i should know about it? this is my first piece of coral. are there any general rules of thumb in coral location?
also, i have a 10 G tank and i was wondering if i should add a powerhead when i add the coral. the lead from the filter back into my tank causes some agitation, but im not sure if it is enough. i know that corals like currents.
finially, my LFS
reccomended Kent coral-vite as a food source for the coral. is this stuff any good? is there anything else that you guys would reccommend that i feed it? i have looked through several books, but the ones i have read don't have much information on feeding corals and the like.
thanks so much!
