Will the zoos like 10k or actinic better? The guy at my LFS said they like 10k. But I'd like a second opinion.
I'm feeding phyto feast and oyster feast to the scallop mushroom and zoos


I'd really like the mushroom to.....divide?
What conditions do I need to meet for this to occur. It's already grown a lot

Just joined in and I have to say it looks nice! Not sure if I missed it or not but how large is your tank?

As for feeding the flame scallop the only real option to keep one healthy while not fouling your water is to grow your own phytoplankton culture. I feed my Isochrysis culture to my tank every few days (just pour some in) and my flame scallop has been happy for the past 8 months. They are very short lived so will live at most around 2 years. They will end up rejecting most food so you can't even really be sure that your food is working for him.

Also zoas and mushrooms don't need to be fed, your just adding nutrients to your system

Good deal. I've got no problem adding less junk to my water haha.
My tank is 34 gallons
Are there any particular nutrients my zoas need?
I'm using instant ocean. Once the bag runs out I'll start using reef crystals. That's just what's available at my LFS

My nitrates aren't crazy I've got a bit of algea currently tho. I've kept it around for my hermit crabs. I have been swimming all week. I've been in the water for upwards or 5 hours a day I always shower prior to working on te aquarium though. Could it have been chlorine poisoning?
