Did a water change after adding the corals in....

Both new AND old corals are angry and retracted now. It is frustrating how unhappy they become after a water change. Makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong. Update in the morning

I had that same issue when I did water changes directly into the tank, aka pre sump.

That would make sense! I've been thinking of taking my sump off of my fw tank and moving it here. I need a skimmer but don't really want a hob.

I currently have over 25 frags. I think I will stop for a bit and look at fish. Any ideas?

Beautiful fish!!!


Do you think I could keep a magenta and indigo together? Or an indigo and fire fish together?

Dotty backs don't play nice together. One and a fire fish should be fine.

I figured as much....

My lfs ran a special over the weekend on fish. They didn't have much left. Might order online.
