I've had a tank up for about a month and have been having problems... I won't get into that as it's in another thread already...But it's a 10g nano with a few corals and the corals don't seem to be doing so well.
I have two zoa colonies, one won't open and the other, I've had up to 90% of it open but since a recent bloom of algae, most won't open now. I have a small frag of GSPs that won't open as well... And a couple shrooms
that are shrivelled too... I'd suspected it was a nitrate/phosphate problem so I'm in the process of fixing that (was using dechlored tap but switching to RO
... bought a few gals yesterday and brewing water now to do PWC
tonight, cutting down light time, and added chaeto last night) at the moment but was wondering if it may also be the light?
At the moment I have a 15 watt Coralife 50/50 and a 15 watt Fish 101 actinic bulb. Am I overdoing it in the actinic range? I have a 10k daylight bulb lying around, should I switch the 50/50 with that?
I know I'm already on the low range for lighting at 3GPH but I'm in the process of deciding what fixture to buy and am using these for the time being... Was thinking of replacing with the smaller Nova... Oh, and is this
too much light for a 10g?
