Woke up today and my rbta moved! Kind of odd since he has been happy in his spot for quite some time now. Thankfully, he moved to the back of the tank and not on a coral. He picked a nice spot, the meteor shower that died and I pushed the skeleton behind the rock is where it is currently sitting. Planning on doing a 5g pwc
tomorrow as normally scheduled, but maybe do a 10 g if I can get the water for it. I didn't have any real concerns until I started watching my gbta. This guy just hasn't adapted well to my tank ever, either hiding or just acting angry. But, after he had been looking the best he had been in the last few days his mouth was really gapped. Hoping that it wasn't him that caused this, but a large water change will be good for my system anyway.
Also, found some more byropsis hiding on my back glass behind the rocks while I was looking at my rbta. Can't get to it so I'm not worried about it for the most part.
Also started doing some reading about Radions from mrsaltwaterfish when he first got them compared to MH
. Read is here btw: Mr. Saltwater Tank’s Radion LED Experiment
It is interesting that he was running his radions at 100%. This was in his SPS
tank, and I really don't think that it is even doable for LPS
at that intensity. At 60% power I have to put my LPS
in the shade. Eitherway, more researching for me. I just want to have my corals be as bright as everyon elses at this point. I have a beautiful starlight acro that shows its light blue polyps, but it is still quite brown.
While I'm thinking about my corals, any insight on plate corals? This might just be me being picky...as I bought my purple rimmed plate from saltwaterfish.com. In the picture when I bought it it was white and purple. But...coral shouldn't be white...right???
