Well, my tank has been cycled for over a month now. I added the clean-up crew about 3-4 weeks back, added 2 perc clowns 2-3 weeks ago, and a green star polyp rock about 2 weeks ago. Yesterday I finally picked up the hammer coral I had on hold for a week. When I was at the lfs
, I saw this great looking open brain. In my head, I wanted to wait and be patient with my additions but I gave in and purchased the open brain AND 2 firefish.
So I came home with a hammer, open brain, and 2 firefish. The firefish are in quarantine and they are eating and getting along. The open brain looks awesome, very meaty and plump and fullly opened with great color. The Hammer is fully opened as well, and my 2 percs seem like they are interested in hosting in it, lol.
Well, do you think I made a mistake? I called the lfs
and they said that they would be willing to hold something for me if I wanted to bring it back. I didn't intend to buy all that I did, but now that it's done, what should I do? Do corals add to the bio-load of the tank, or do we only consider fish?
I tested my water a few mins. ago and here are the readings:
pH - 8.2
.- 3.5 meq/l
