One side of the rocks on almost all of the pieces had coraline or some form of algae on it, I didn't use that side on all the rocks d/t my aquascaping. Some of the rock is also base rock. Tested the water params today. Been almost 24 hrs after putting the rock in. Looks like
Ph- 8.0
Ammonia- 1.0ppm
Nitrite- 0ppm
Nitrate- 10ppm

Its no where near time to start adding fish, but I'm wanting a dwarf angel. Either a coral beauty or flame angel. I know they are known to nip corals, but I have some friends who have them in their reef tanks and they have been fine. What do you guys think?

Take a look at this pic and tell me what you think. If you need a better pic I can try and get a better one. The rock in the pic came out of my biocube. I never had a problem with aptasia, but if you look to the leftt of that tuft of hair algae, I'm not sure if those are aptasia or small feather dusters. When they are brushed they recend back into the tubes, and the tubes are semi hard. I have one aptasia in my 30gal my pepermint shrimp havnt eaten yet, but when he is bothered, he recends all the way into the rock.

I found a light fixture I am considering buying. What do you guys think? It does not come with any bulbs, so what combination of bulbs should I get if I do get this fixture?

Sunlight Supply Tek Light High Output Fluorescent Lighting Fixtures

or I have been looking at this light, although I have very mixed feelings about it. I have read good and bad reviews.
Please give me your input. Thanks!
