Yeah. I understand that. I just had my main emphasis on corals when I started so I jumped to making sure the water was good I guess

Ammonia
Nitrite
Nitrate
Phosphates

Lol. Pic 10 is a hammer coral- purple/green. It's about 13 heads last I counted.

Which clams do you want? I have a maxima and a croacea clam. The maximas are more expensive but have a lot brighter coloring.

seachem has a multiple kit. Calcium, magnesium, and phosphates are separate.
